site won't let me change my avatar pic to one i want

i can still change it but i wanted to use something i found at the auto show. the size is within limits (3.2mbs) but i'm not sure of the pixels. everytime i try and upload it, it takes a while and comes back with a failed upload.

any help?

Pretty sure the size limitation for avatars are as follows:

Quote:
Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 144 by 168 pixels or 75.0 KB (whichever is smaller).
And that's for Contributors. For non Contributors, I'm pretty sure it's 100x100. I'd guess the size limitation may be 75kb still. It should say that right on the Avatar page. I don't know of any auto resizing and 3.2 MB is way too big for an avatar.

Just google photo resizing and go to any page that allows custom dimensions. Resize it to 100x100 and then try and upload it again.

Morris....

Upload your pic to an image hosting site, all presized or fullsize or however you want it. Post it here or PM me it. I'll try and change it from my end.
