Please help?

Recommended Posts

I`m new to this forum and want to add a profile picture. Keep getting a message saying the file size is too large, but it`s less 120 kb!!! Also, can`t seem to add my pic with David Tennant, as a new post. Can anyone help???

I think instead of trying to upload an image directly you need to upload it to a picture sharing site like photobucket or imagebam and then add the link in your profile. The same goes for posting pictures on the forum, you need to post the link from a picture sharing site, you can't post it directly onto the forum.

Managed to upload my profile pic straight from the 'puter but had to downsize it quite a bit, think it's about 20kb or something.

 

The picture posting is definitely through picture sharing sites tho.

Cheers, I`ll try reducing the pic size then. Shame you have to use a pic sharing site!
