    Add a profile pick

    I hope this is the right place to post this. Just wondering if anyone could tell me how to put my dog up as my profile picture. Can do it on Facebook, just not sure about here. Thanks in advance!

    Oh gawd. Thanks Esme and Alpha1! I was looking in "my profile". So much easier under the right tab. Lol. I'll put it up when I get home tonight.

    Hey I'm not really very technically inclined so I hope it works out for you.

    Holy! There's a bunch. Thanks for much, lovemylittleboy!

    Your dog is so cute! When shrunk down, it looks like something is on his head. Now I see it's his ears! lol

    I did the same thing and got an "Upload failed" message. It says the picture must be 100x100 pixels. I don't know anything about making images that small.
    Rescued is my favorite breed. Don't shop, adopt!

    I don't think it has to be that small, my avatar was from a photo in one of my albums here. If you have image editing software on your computer, just go to "Edit" and then "Resize", you should be able to choose your pixel size or a percentage of the photo that you want it to be, then save the changes. I usually copy any photos that I want to shrink down into a Briefcase folder on my desktop. That way I keep the huge photos in my Pictures folder, and upload the smaller ones from my Briefcase.

    Here's some tips on posting photos in your posts and making an album, and it discusses sizes. If you don't have software, you can upload it to an online link in the second post, resize it there, save it back to your computer.....then upload it from there. Good luck. http://www.petforums.com/showthread....r-Create-Album
