try the profile link at the foot of the forums.
It allows a larger image. Up to 436 pixels wide x 600 pixels high, and up to 100kb.

I would caution you against putting your real pic up. People often steal others avi pics on here. You are just making it easy for them.

Hi there. Well first go to the aforementioned link in the profile settings. Scroll to the second section where it says Profile image settings. There you can choose the first option where it says Upload profile image from your machine, click browse and find the image you want, or choose Upload profile image from a URL where you would paste in the URL from a site such as photobucket or whatever other site you store pics on. Max size on a pic that can be uploaded are width: 436 pixels, height: 600 pixels, filesize limit 100 KB. Once you have done either of these options don't forget to scroll down to the bottom of the page and click submit. You should then see your avi pic changed. Hope this is helpful.


[mod edit - corrected maximum sizes. What it says on the page isn't right Auntiepjl]

I did as you instructed but the picture still didn't show up. o3o;
I don't quite understand how you can upload profile image from a URL. I put in a link and it just didn't do it for me. Or am I just doing this all wrong?~Lmao.

I think the option to upload from a URL doesn't work any more. Don't quote me on that...but I don't think it does.

Best thing to do is simply download the picture to your PC, and upload it locally from there.

if the page can't upload the pic there is usually a reason given somewhere on the page. Scroll up and down and look for it.
It may say that the picture is too large, or the wrong format.
What error do you get?

(width: 160 pixels, height: 220 pixels, filesize limit 100 KB) I know your file size already fits....but change your dimensions to what I've posted here and try that. I know Auntie edited the dimensions in SensuousKitty's post, but look at the dimension sizes of the other DP's on the forums...They're all 160x220....so maybe that is where your issue is.

You can resize the image using the paint, option for resizing is the skew function. You can also make your picture as your background try using a pic link to a URL. A good pic storage link can come from http://www.imageshack.us. It's easy as 123 then a link will be provided to you. You can save the format in .jpg, .gif or .png.


I have a sample in my homepage

Here is another run through of the directions, since they are scattered:

In order to upload your image, you need to make sure it is less than 436x600 pixels in size, though I recommend 160x220 since that's what is displayed (anything else is resized).

There are two places to upload your picture. In your normal account settings, the image must be less than 39KB to be uploaded. In your FORUM profile page ( http://www.imvu.com/catalog/modules.php?op=modload&name=phpbb2&file=profile.php&mode=editprofile ), you can upload anything up to 100KB, and this is the best method I have found. (And I haven't seen the upload from URL option work, so upload pictures directly from your computer).


To edit the image yourself, you need a program such as GIMP, which is free. ( http://www.gimp.org ) or any program on your computer that can resize images (Irfanview is another good free program). Once it is resized, you can check the file size by right clicking it and choosing Properties.

Lastly, make sure the file type is appropriate to your needs. JPG is the smallest file size, and is good for almost everything. PNG is great quality, a bit bigger in size, and can hold a transparency. GIF is for animated images and get very large.
