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?

Does anyone know if it is possible to adjust the thumbnail of a hub? One of my thumbnails is of a picture which is portrait of a person and the way that it has been cut makes it look a bit strange as his head is cut off so ideally it would be adjusted so that his head was included?Is there a way to...

I use Facebook, Digg, Reddit and Redgage to post links to new hubs. I also use Technorati, which is supposed to pick up new hubs automatically. Thumbnails of photos used to post with the link for Facebook and Redgage. I can't get any thumbnail to post in the links. Also, Technorati automatically...

I published my first two video hubs last week and am not really satisfied at all with the 4 thumbnail options that have been created for each video during processing.I can see how I can change the first few seconds of my video to possibly get an acceptable thumbnail, but (and I realize this is...
