Why is it that the photo that is loaded does not show up as the thumbnail next the hub on the topics page or even under my profile page? I'm confused as some of the thumbnails show the image of the hub (ie. peanut butter cookies) but not in others, even though I used it as a template (ie. chocolate chip cookies).
Can anyone tell me how to fix this or what I am doing wrong??
If the file size isn't large enough, uploaded pictures won't show as thumbnails, and your profile picture then becomes the thumbnail by default.
Or at least that's as good as I can guess based on what you said.
An image has to be at least 80 pixels square or it won't be used as a thumbnail. Images that small usually don't look very good in hubs either, so I'd recommend trying to find some higher resolution images to use.
Thank you Paul and Relache!
I will check the pixel and file sizes!
Oh! *slaps forehead* so THAT's how it works.
Thx for clearing this up - I have been wondering about this for several days. Now I have some pic double-checking to do.
Well, started doing the re-pics thing, but any good freebie sites for high res photos?

Some hubs don't show a thumbnail (my hubs don't) when posting to facebook, but some do.I don't know if Facebook is unable to recognize a photo on certain hub accounts or what, but I thought I'd let you know.
