do I make my file size small enough to upload? I have the pixel dimensions right and I've tried saving as the lowest possible quality and it's still like, twice as large as it needs to be. This shouldn't be hard.

i changed my avatar from a png file to a jpeg file and that seemed to do the trick... maybe something to try?

Hey look I did it. If anyone else is having trouble, I changed it to a .gif and that seemed to work. I kinda forgot those things still existed.

Rubella, I don't know what program you use to make your avatars but I personally prefer Paint.net

http://www.getpaint.net/

I start by opening a picture (obvs). Then I use rectangle select and change it from normal selection mode to fixed ratio, and set the ratio to 5 x 7. Then I draw the rectangle over what I want as my avatar. I use the Move Selection arrow to center it up all pretty. Then I crop to selection, then resize to 100 x 140. I nearly always save as PNG and you can move the quality slider a little down if he filesize is still somehow too big. Tada!

Well I can't even figure out where to go to upload an avatar. I went to user control panel, but I couldn't find it. Help!

ETA: Oh. Found it. It's early OKAY?!
