Hmm, try searching google for jpeg image resizing online. You can ask ollie aswell he'll probably size it down for you.

its just exploiting a fault in the way you choose both avatar and profile picture, cos the poor thing gets confused. I think that the problem has been fixed tho, and even if you do use a larger picture you'll just be told to get rid of it.

would love to help, but my hands are tied , soz.

Just open up Paintbrush, select Attributes from the image menu and change the 2 numbers to 50. Design a little picture, click on File, Save As, Save As Type and select JPEG. Once it's saved to your desktop, you should be able to upload it from the UK-learning control panel.

maybe there should be a sticky thread for how you change your avatar and how the rep system works. those questions are beeing frequently asked when somebody joins the forum.

Ollie is putting together a new FAQ which covers all of these. Look in the 'about' subforum to see a prototype version.

If you have an avatar of the correct size prepared (50x50 pixels or less), then click User CP at the top right of the main screen, then select 'avatar'.

From there, click 'yes' where it says use custom avatar, then click 'browse' where it says You can upload an avatar from your computer. Simply browse to where the picture is located and select it. When you've chosen it, click submit modifications.

Use a programme like Coral or somesuch. Ask Ollie next time he's around and I'm sure that he'll do it for you.
