Avatar uploading problem

Postby Helen » Mon May 05, 2014 7:55 pm

I have tried using photobucket and Flickr and have been able to upload images to my personal gallery however when it comes to uploading my avatar it says too big a file. But not sure how to make any smaller?

Btw Have managed to upload on Ravelry too

Any suggestions most welcome

Thank you

Helen

Sorry I can't help, when I did mine several years ago I pressed the teenage son button which sorted it out in a flash.

Hi sweetpea yes I saw your post and have been racking my brains hence why didn't reply!! My youngest did do it for me I think and with some very quick flashes of this that and the other he had it on the screen, so I couldn't tell u! But I will ask him if it's possible to explain!

I still have problems uploading photos sometimes. I use an iPad and have found a different app called image size and that has been more successful. Are u using PC or iPad?
Rav I don't need anything it does it automatically.

Hi sweetpea
Just had chat to my son. He suggested looking in paint, and there should be an option to view the photo in there and then opt to resize, choosing the smaller option. Hope that helps :hug:
