I am in desperate need of help. For some odd reason, I cannot change my avatar picture or my personal display picture. The same picture keeps appearing, only in a different size! It's becoming quite frustrating... thinking.gif angrybig.gif cry.gif So, my point is, please help me!!!

Problems replacing your Avatar or Personal Photo?
If, after you have tried to change your Avatar/Personal Photo, it looks as if your old image is still there... it's probably because the image has got "stuck" in your browser (Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla, Opera, Netscape etc) memory.

Try looking at a topic where you can see your avatar (or click on your own name in a topic to view your profile and personal photo), then hold down the SHIFT key on your keyboard while you click the Refresh/Reload button in your browser.

This should refresh the page, empty your browser's memory (cache) and you should now see the new avatar you've chosen.


It always helps to check the FAQ first. wink.gif

If it says that it has trouble uploading, then check to see if you used the right file type. Otherwise, it just doesn't like your pic. Mean, but it happens to me all the time...

I'm having similar problems with posting images from my digital camera.I looked at the help section and what i didn't understand was #3 Copy the address (URL) of the image down. It starts with http:// and ends with .gif or .jpg.
Like so: http://forum.blueharvest.net/html/emoticons/smilehuge.gif


when I got to the properties this is what I found instead of an URL C:\Documents and Settings\JEANIE\My Documents\My Pictures

Can someone help me too sad.gif please sad.gif

"It is known that there are infinite number of worlds, simply because there is infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so average population of all planets in Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that population of whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of deranged imagination."

The path C:\Documents and Settings\JEANIE\My Documents\My Pictures points to a location on your own computer. If you try to post a picture and give that path, when the rest of us who try to look at it, will be looking at a location on our own computers that likely doesn't exist. We can't look at files on your computer, (well not very easily tounge.gif ) so if you want to share a picture you have to save it somewhere on the internet. Like Master said http://imageshack.us is a good place to do that.

I didn't understand why do you want to upload the image some place else, and not on bh itself?

This forum system supports image uploading - it allows one picture per person to be uploaded for an avatar, one for personal photo.

Obi_ is telling you how to share any other picture that you want to post on the forum.
As much as I understand it, you only want to change your avatar.

So, here's what you do - you go to :
http://forum.blueharvest.net/index.php?act=UserCP&CODE=24
And choose "upload image from your computer" - click browse and choose the picture you want to upload.
Now there are two restrictions - since the thing is uploaded to the forum's data base directly, you understand it can't be infinitely big smilesmall.gif

So, the image must be "Uploaded avatars from your computer must be no larger than 100 KB.
The following file types are allowed: gif .jpeg .jpg .png"
Check out if the image you try to upload is not too big - if it is - reduce it's size and/or quality to make it meet the restrictions smilesmall.gif


If you want me, I could resize/reduce the image for you - no problem smilesmall.gif

if you want to change your personal photo, though
you have to go here: http://forum.blueharvest.net/index.php?act=UserCP&CODE=photo
and there are other restrictions:
This section will allow you to specify a photo to be used in your profile which is viewable by other board members.
All photos must be no larger than 100 kB.
Photos must be no bigger than 144 pixels by 150 pixels.
Are you sure you are not trying to use a bigger image?

If you want a tip from experience, don't use imageshack. It has bad service and set-up of their pages. confused.gif
Photobucket has a few problems with breaking down of their servers here and there but the possibilities you have with your account are great! msn_yes.gif smile.gif

Try ctrl and F5 (simultaneously). That should reload your cache and get rid of the problem.

I don't agree with you, Firefox is better in many ways.
Just use page reload wink.gif
