Help W/ Avatar Pic Please?

I don't know where to ask this so I'm asking here. I tried everything I knew what to do to post a personal pic in my Avatar last night- to no avail. I modified it to comply with rules- it would not load from Photobucker or my personal computer's files. Kept getting messages like "Do not recognize thzt format" or You can not post that type image here". I swear it's no pornographic...well...guitar pron for sure; a pic of my new SG headstock. [drool]

 

If anyone can point me in the right direction I'd 'preciate it! Thanks in advance...

I am tech challenged as well. It took me a while to add my avatar. Just play with it. I did mine a long time age.

 

I'll keep plugging away at it. Wish my daughter lived closer...

 

BTW I love your Avatar! While stationed in Germany in the military in the late 70s I had a giant poster of Zappa "Sheik Yer Booty" (Sp) MUCH to the chagrin of my platoon Sgt. He cited a military reg that required ALL personal / entertainment pictures to be "framed" if they are hung up in the barracks rooms. LOL- went right down-town Nuremberg and bought a huge frame complete with plexi-glass ....you shoulda seen the look on his face the next time he entered the room... [angry]

Your avatar must be no bigger than 120 pixels by 120 pixels in size.

Uploaded avatars from your computer must be no larger than 150 KB.

The following file types are allowed: gif,jpg,jpeg,png ...

 

 

when you hit that criteria it should upload.

 

So what you want to do is make sure your picture is squareish then resize it to roughly 120 x 120 and save it as a .JPG.. (if its not square you may get 120 x 100 or something)
