What do I have to do to a post a pic of me on here. I always get an error message about the size of the file. Any idea how to do this quickly?

Thanks
Heather

Where ever you are getting your photo from, you need to crop and resize it to 80 X 80 pixels first. Then upload it.

Whatever photo editor you're using, there should be a 'Resize' option under one of the menus. Usually, you can then resize according to pixels, or percentage of original size. You'll want to choose to resize by pixels, and make it 80 x 80 or less. I seem to remember that when I did this, I also had to play around with saving the file as different file types (JPG vs. BMP for example). One of those types created a smaller file size, I just can't remember which one right now. But in addition to the pixel size, you also need to get the size of the file down to 12 kb or less.

If you can't resize it yourself there are websites that do it easily and quickly for you out there. shrinkpictures.com is quick, easy and free.
