    It took me forever to work out how to import a photo, thought I had it sorted last week, even added one to my profile

    It then appeared with my name on posts, I was really to beginning to feel I was getting there!!

    Now when I check posts where I have added my bit, all I see is the silhouette, my profile still shows the photo of our dog (Lola) attempting the stiles / sheep stoppers around Hawes

    So, can you see what I can't?

    If you click on Edit profile (above)

    Click in the second box down ... browse

    this takes you to your photos, click the one you want and click in the second box again, submit save changes. It should appear IF it isn't too big.. if it doesn't appear it could be too big.

    Avatar photos have to be very small to download fully, no more than 97kbs. Check the size of the photo you are trying to download. I change mine the other day and it took about 4 attempts but got it small enough in the end.

    Sorry guys I know its confusing. But the picture that appears next to your posts is an AVATAR. Click on my avatar and in my profile you will see my real mug, which is my profile pic. :thumb: Avatar Tutorial

    I thought how hard can that be!!

    I have reduced size to 100 due to numerous failed attempts, I keep getting a vBulletin message Upload of file failed

    Properties all seem OK 2053 bytes 100 x 100 pixels

    My profile now shows the photo set as Avatar where it wasn't before, but not on my thread still

    Sorry, any more ideas, I really think I have followed your prompts to the letter, resizing etc

    :thumb:Jim you really do have special powers, it is all fixed, despite saying it failed

    That is my kind of failure, thanks for the help

    Now just need to get booked on the Easter meet for my first face to face

    It took me several goes, I reduced size to 100 in the end, that seemed to be the key, but even then it said file upload failed, but it worked anyway

    Good luck with yours

    I can see your doggie xxxx:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

    and even if it did vanish and reappear, by having the guts to ask, you have probably solved lots of other funster piccy problems

    I used the link on Jims reply, this opened a new page, I selected the photo I wanted, set size originally to 120 but then reduced to 100 when it did not work. The picture is reduced then I right clicked on revised image saved to my desktop for my own ease, but it appeared as my Avatar automatically

    I did not work first 2 times, I then changed the photo but I think although I had set size to 120 it was still too big, third time lucky for me

    Good luck

    I got the same message when uploading my piccy: "File upload failed" but the picture appeared anyway. Just a glitch I think. Now if anyone knows how to make the site spellchecker do English English instead of US English that would be helpful...
