When i went into paint to draw a costum avartar and saved it, Geekstogo said that that kind of picture couldn't be used. How does everyone else get those costum avartars?


Thanks,
MR0624

I think my avatar was a whole lot bigger than abovementioned dimensions/filesize. After I uploaded it it got shrunk to size automatically.
Are you trying to upload some exotic file-format? ( I haven't tried to upload a BMP, maybe that's the problem? That's the only thing Paint can produce, no?)

Success! :tazz:

It should be able to save in : bmp, dib, jpg, jpeg or gif formats. Seems every forum I've joined has different specs for the Avatars. Has to go into My Pictures and rename pix with pixal sizes so I could find right ones. File sizes in Kb/Mb comes up in normal mouseovers.
