It looks like yours is a .jpeg.  Could you try a .jpg or .gif, please?

I've been trying and trying to change my avatar picture to no avail. I don't know maybe it's me? Is there a size limit on avs? Because it doesn't say there is in the edit profile section. I choose 'I will upload my own picture:' and then I hit 'browse' I choose a jpg image that is 152 KB. I click open and it puts the file in the little box. Then I click change profile.

I've also tried this with a .gif file and no change. It's still the same old avatar I've had.

So I tried uploading my image onto flickr and adding the link to the box that says 'I have my own pic:' and it changes, but instead of being the image that I want it's just blank, as though I have no avatar at all.

Help me please! Perhaps I'm an idiot, but I would be grateful to just change the image! Thanks.

Hey there!  Sometimes it can take 24 hours or so for the stored version in the system to refresh.

I'm glad it worked for ya!  Your avatar is AWESOME.

I feel extremely dumb, but mine isn't changing either--it was a picture of me until about three weeks ago, when I made the (apparently ill-fated) decision to change it.  I've tried clearing my cache in Firefox, and also going in through IE and uploading it there.  Any more tips?

Aw, don't feel dumb! Smiley

It's actually because your file is a ".jpeg" file rather than a ".jpg" file.  The system is picky, picky about only accepting .jpg and .gif -- sorry about that.  I actually have a request entered to get that screen updated to include a note mentioning this.

Meanwhile, could you try a .jpg or .gif?  If you do not know how to resave your file as one of these, I'd be happy to do it for you.  Just email it to me at jean@craftster.org, I'll change the filetype and upload it for you while I'm at it, too.

Craftster wont accept my new avatar, no matter which way I try to present it.  In the past when I have done this, it has shown up immediately.  Is is just taking more time for some reason?  I sort of doubt this...   thanks.

Hey, there!  Sometimes it can take up to 24 hrs or so for the system to refresh it.

Other times, it's a file or upload error. 

I'm currently seeing a photo of someone wearing a blue shirt.  Is that the new avatar or your old one?
