I made a picture I want to use as an avatar but every time I try to load it I get massage that it is invalid. This is the picture. I wish I could put a Pern style dragon with his ridder leaning over as if talking to the dolphins. I have no way of doing that. I just want something a little different that theother dolphins with dragons.
Can anyone HELP me. PLEASE!!!!!!!!!

Hm, if that's the size of the avatar you're trying to load, then it's way too big. You'll have to resize it first. Or someone can do it for you.

Maw, there is no automatic resize when you try to upload an avatar, so you need to resize it yourself. Since the maximum size is 80 x 80 pixels I've made yours 80 pixels high and since it is not square it looks like this (which you can upload after you first drag/save it to your PC)



Even better would be if you designed a square one, which might make it look bigger. As you see your name and the dolphins should be bigger too.

Good luck with the project; I do like the ava although the background i better when it's large...
