    A user can't get a new avatar photo to download though. I've tried three different size photos in hopes that one would work. Any ideas?

    Can you tell me the smallest file size you tried and the browser you're using? Also, if anyone else has ideas to help here chime it! :)

    As near as I can tell the smallest file size is 830 X 400 pixels or 191 KB. Not sure on the browser. Thanks for the posting. :)

    Thanks,Erik for the input. I will see if I can resize the photo, or find another photo out of my pictures to use.

    Everett, we're still working on this to try to get it resolved.

    Do you use a Mac or PC? Also...what internet browser do you use?

    1st......does he have his pic he wants as his 'avatar' saved to his computer???...

    2nd....if he does.......and he is here(literally)..at 'Airnation'...........ready to put his pic.avatar

    3rd......open another page....and go to.....http://tinypic.com/?t=postupload

    4th.....the page will ask him to......'upload images and videos'..........and ask him to 'browse' for his pic he already has saved somewhere on his computer.....




    5th.....when he finds his 'avatar wannabe pic'......click and it will show his choice in the same box...

    6th..go straight down to the big Green 'upload' NOW box......and click.....it.........
    7.........a box comes up....and asks him to........type in either words or numbers....or answer a question.....to prove he isn't a big pile o spam or potted meat....
    8......then......there will be 4 links to choose from ........go straight down to the 4th choice...labeled.
    "Direct link for layouts".....'right click.......and copy.....the 4th link....
    9....he needs to come back HERE to this page.....and in the 'box'.....where he would put a comment or such.......as I am doing right here.............he needs to click the "'Insert/edit image'......the box with the "TREE".....
    10...click the 'TREE' box.....and will ask for a URL.....which is the link he copied....in step #8....he is to 'right click and "PASTE"......the URL....he had saved from step #8..
    11......click "INSERT".......at that moment......his pic/Avatar..will then show up.......his his/THIS box.....then he can after add text or whatever he likes.........to go along with his Brand New ..AWESOME AVATAR......!!!!!!!!!
    12....he lives 'Happily Ever After'...............

    I hope this helps..I know.........that no matter how small or big...my pic was.......using "tiny pic"........got me.....the avatar......I wanted...........

    Thank you to Lee, Erik, and Miss TWA for all of your input. I really appreciate it. To answer Lee's question I use a PC and the windows pictures, that I have saved in "my pictures". I haven't had a chance to work on this for a few days because of my long hours at work. Hopefully by this weekend I will have some time and be able to try something else and get a picture downloaded. I want to try the tips that Miss TWA wrote down so thoroughly. Again thanks to all of you!! This is a great site, with great people on it and I'm happy to be a part of this awesome site!! :) Everett

    Does anyone on here use a Mac? One of our users cannot change his avatar and he uses Mac. Want to see if anyone else has the same issue.
