    Avatar upload

    I'm having problems uploading the avatar image from my hard disk.

    I tried with .bmp and .jpeg formats, within the memory and size treshold required.

    To no avail. I'll allways end up with the same message:

    "this is not a valid image file"

    Any clues?

    MMmmm,
    right now on my posting rules I noticed I cannot post attachments.
    So may be I have the same problem a previous poster expressed on not being allowed to upload image formats.
    I'll try and e-mail the administrator about it.

    I think you need a minimum number of posts, first. I just don't know what that number is. All I know is that I reached it.

    must be in a .jpg or .gif format... not .jpeg

    due to server space issues... only supporting members can upload attachments.

    OK gents,
    maybe it was just the minimum treshold post # (at least one) that activated such capability.

    js, aren't the .jpeg or .jpg formats processed the same way by applications? I also reduced the size from 80^2 pixels to 79^2 pixels, for a good measure.

    Anyway, my avatar is there at last, looks great, isn't it?

    .jpg and .jpeg are essentially the same - however, the file extension is different. And many programs, this software being one of them, will only accept the ".jpg" extension.

    I used to see ".jpeg" all the time, but not so much lately...
