I increased the limit from 30kB to 75kB

If your file is too big, PM me I will give you my email and I will resize it and install it for you.

The limit is to avoid 15 images of 1MB each in a page, 15MB to load everytime, you will say that the forum is too slow ;)

Anyone! trying to understand the avatar where it says "upload from your machine" does that mean from the photos on your computer or do you need to go through Photoshop? Thanks, Ken.

I'll give this a try! If you have Microsoft Office Picture Manager? Open your file using Microsoft Office Picture Manager. If you want to save your original go to file and click "Save as" and rename it. Then go to "Edit pictures", now click on "Resize". On the right you'll see "Size setting summary", Original size @ New size. Now above these settings you'll see "Percentage of original width x height", you need to either bring your size up or down by changing the percentage while watching the "New size" setting numbers to 230 or close to 230. Now when you get the numbers where you want them put them in "Custom width x height" both boxes. Then click " OK". Now you should have your picture where it should be. Now follow up with what Ludo put up. "Profile @ Edit Avatar". Hopefully this will help! :)
