    I would copy the picture you want to use into Paint.

    Save it - but be sure to save it as a JPG. If it saves as a BMP, it'll be too big.

    Try saving it as a PNG image.

    And if you right-click it, it's under 4,000 bytes. Told you saving it as a JPG would work. :confused3 :rotfl:

    Are you uploading it from your saved files, or as a URL? That may be the problem... At the bottom of the Avatar screen did you upload it from your saved files or did you just paste a URL in?
