The extension is the .jpg, .gif, etc. There are only a few allowed. What's your extension now? Try changing it to .jpg or .gif.

Like gothictheysay said, it's probably that. What you can do is put it into Microsoft Paint (if you have it. I think this works with all paint programs), go to Save As, then go to where it says Save As Type, and make it a JPG (or JPEG...what ever it says). This might not work on all computer types, but it worked on mine. Good luck!

I think theres a restriction on the size of the picture as well (file size and actual size), if you resize the picture in Paint (or whatever you want to use) to about the size the avatars show up as on the forums then it should let you use it.

(yeah, I know the error message says the file extension is wrong but computers are silly and confusing sometimes and it might work, otherwise the extension filter thing might only allow lower case extensions or other weird things like that.)

Where are you linking the pic from? Some places don't allow outside linking. I got that error message when I tried to link to my freewebs account a while back. blink.gif

Tried making it smaller... still nothing....

And linking from fotango.com which is a website especially for linking to photos.

This is the photo I want on there (well... actually thats the big version, but whatever.)
