I tried to find a picture for you.
This is the best I could do. :)
But it is a polar bear that is NOT a REAL bear

Click on the bottom address not the top one...
I am having trouble getting this url posted so you can click on it.
Janie. :tazz:

Since this applies to the both of you, Ill just post here rather than PM'ing you.

The maximum allowed images in your signature and avatar is 16kb. Both of you are over that. Flowergirl your avatar is too big and Triggerr_Happy your avatar is 15kb so you dont have room for your 55kb image in your signature.

If you need help trying to resize those images or figuring out how to tell the file size, just ask.

Thanks ScHwErV.
I sure didn't know that my 'flower' was too big. I'm sorry.

I assumed if the images had too many pixels, (or whatever they
are called) that they just wouldn't work on here.

I will try to find something else.
Thanks for letting me know.

Yah, just right click on the image that you are using for an avatar and select Properties. In there you can find the file size, that will have to be less than 16kb.

Found this HERSHEY KISS with 4.5KB

In the GEEK AVATAR RULES it says:


"Your avatar must be no bigger than 100 pixels by 100 pixels in size.
Uploaded avatars from your computer must be no larger than 100 KB."

So I assumed my opening rose image that was 20.8 k would be ok......
What does 100 KB mean? Does that mean 16 k?

Thanks
Janie

And also in my PM I said that it needs the second half of the word to actually mean something. In computers, k generally means Kilobytes. The real way to express this would be kb, not k.

Hmmm, you would think they could put a b after the k when
showing the above images to download. It wouldn't be all that much trouble. :)

As you said a k stands for Kilo.
"An there is no k. K means Kilo, which is worthless
without the last half of the word. kb is Kilobytes."


Thanks for the explanation.
Janie :woot:
P.S. I give beginner computer lessons and I like to learn
all I can. :tazz:
