    Pics/avatar problems

    I posted a new thread asking if anyone knew why I am having problems posting pictures and changing my avatar picture but I did not get a response. Maybe this is a better place to ask, but I thought a moderator or someone might chime in on the original post. I have tried uploading pictures from my computer, Samsung three, and an iPhone 4 S with no luck. Every time I try to upload it says there is a problem and file could not upload. Please help, I would like to participate more but am unable to. Thanks in advance!

    File too large? There are limits on the sizes of files and the dimensions of avatars. At leats there used to be. I'm not sure how often the forum is updated or what the specs are. I'm not a computer guy so I couldn't even tell you how to resize pics.

    Not a computer guy either, but....
    One of the simplest ways to resize a pic on a pc is MS paint (sorry to all you mac users)
    Open your image with paint, choose "resize" from the image options in the toolbar and select pixels instead of %. That will allow you to resize to the accepted size for the forum. (not that I can recall the max size) There is a max size though for pictures and avatars.

    Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 140 by 140 pixels or 97.7 KB (whichever is smaller).

    I am not able to post pictures anymore either. I know about size limitations, so that is not the problem. I am attempting to load pics from the same location that are the same size as ones I have posted before, but nothing. If I could post a picture of the screen shot, I would, but I cannot.

    I get a little exclamation point to the right of the picture that says: 404 [IOErrorEventType= "ioError" bubbles=false cancelable=false eventPhase=2 text= Error #2038]

    Have you tried different web browsers? You could also try uploading a picture from a website vs your computer to see if that works.

    It might have been pic size. Never had any problems with it before coming right from the computer.

    Something else to try: When you go to upload an image file from your computer, in the lower corner of the window it says "basic uploader" click that and give it a try.
