    I would say you save it to your computer, if you already haven't, then upload it from your computer. Links don't work well for me...

    I don't know if it'll work. I've been having some problems myself.

    ETA:I uploaded yours successfully on my computer. Should work now...

    I think he uploaded it from his computer, not a link. That's how I do my avatar too.

    i know, but when i try, not only is it over the byte size, but it says that the jpg code is still not valid................ i mean when you browse your computer, it puts a link in the little window..................

    That's very weird. It also shows up if I upload it off of my computer but when I uploaded it to photobucket it gave me the same "this is not a jpg" thing.

    Try this link:
    http://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d54/DementedRiku/WickedWitch.jpg

    If that doesn't work try saving the picture on the link and browsing for it on your computer again. I'm pretty sure it'll work if you open it directly from your computer.

    when you download it to your computer, make sure it's saving as a .jpg and not a .bmp, because bmps are bigger in filesize and a lot of forums don't like them. When you download, underneath the file name there should be a pull down menu with file extension names, the one you need is .jpg

    Sometimes internet explorer gets messed up and starts downloading all images as .bmp files, if that's what's happening let me know and I'll link you to instructions on how to fix it (though you might need an adult to do it).

    Yeah the link I gave should go in the first one for "URL's"

    If not try to upload it straight from your computer again. That's how it worked for me and DragonLord.

    did you check what it's downloading as like I said? When you right click on the icon and click save as... does it save as a .jpg? Like I said, your internet explorer could be messed up. All you'd have to do is clear your cache. There are instructions on how to do that here -
    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;810978&zx=156744ddf71ab919970643244 (that's the official microsoft website)
    you might need to get an adult to do it if you don't understand the instructions. After you get that fixed, you'd have to download it again as a .jpg file and then upload it from your computer.
