Please check my profile background. I have my own photo up but it's not working, looks glitchy. I've noticed this for sometime now but it seems to be getting worse. Will check back later. Thanks.
True. It is very awkward. Not selected the size properly. The right-side is blank. And, it is not covering the entire page like mine when you scroll down. You need to select a good size one and select the options in the toolbox properly.
I have my own background photo as well. I just checked it. It fills the page and I don't have "tile" checked for the photo. Did your photo fill the page before, Jan?
@janshares: I appreciate your heads-up on this problem. But if you notice my profile photo, I have never changed it. Well, maybe in the beginning, but with the way HP is sometimes--like a house of cards, one card falls, they all fall.
Just how my profile photo will be. When I change my profile photo, something will go wrong.
Jan, go to email@example.com
and advise them of this.
Put the photo on Picmonkey .com and do some editing that will make it sharper. Other than that, I don't see a problem.
It's the photo I uploaded 4 years ago. I haven't changed it. Maybe it doesn't jibe with site format anymore. I'll try re-uploading later.
Ever person's screen is set to a different size. you photo is one set size. it will cover a different amount of the screen to other people and to you based on what screen settings they are using.
Before you were probably using a small screen or screen setting so the photo filled the space--some update has changed this setting. If one photo covering the entire screen is the effect you want you need a photo that fills the largest common screen size which is 1920x1080 pixels.
And you have not selected for it to "tile" to fill the space?
Are you referring to your profile photo? It looks fine to me. I am viewing it on a laptop, perhaps on a mobile device, it may be different.
It's fine on my Kindle. The problem is on wide screen desktop, perhaps? Wherefore art thou, Matt?
Jan's not talking about her profile picture - she's talking about the background on her profile page.
People, read the posts properly!
So sorry. I will try in the future to do what you say.
Not necessarily aimed at you Ken. Sometimes these threads are like Chinese whispers. The first one misinterprets and then the conversation goes in a completely new, and sometimes bizarre, direction. Amusing, often.
Okay, it's fixed now. Thanks again, psycheskinner. I uploaded the larger pixel pic but it was too large. I put the original smaller pixel pic back then clicked the tile option to fill in the space.

Really, I have noticed a difference in readership and response in the forum depending on which profile photo I have up. Do you? And please tell us about your photo, your avatar

I just joined HubPages and would like to upload a photo to my profile. Everytime I do it, I just get a blank. No photos uploaded even though the file is .jpg and the size is less than 4MB. What am I doing wrong?

Since Whitney and Stephanie have recently changed their photos it's got me thinking about mine. I think I've been here long enough to ask ... What do you think about the profile photo? I originally chose it because it is directly related to my main site - One Stop Mommy Shop dot...
