Any suggestions to upload my photo on my profile? I've tried jpeg and pngs - still get a grey field?
I've tried photos and avatars but nothing wants to post when I upload it from my photo file. I've successfully posted my profile pix everywhere else on the web - but can't turn the trick at HubPages. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated because I want to fully engage and be engaged - a photo helps!
Open your picture and make sure there are no extraneous layers, channels or paths. I am using PhotoShop lingo here so if you have a different application, I'm not sure if there are different words for this. Essentially you just want a flattened image with no extra junk in the file. You can try File, Save A Copy, if that option is available and that might help get rid of the junk.
If you want to send me the image, I could check it, get rid of anything extra and send it back. My e-mail address is scramble_73 at yahoo dot com.
substitute the @ and the . where necessary.
You are a photo GENIUS!!! Thanks so much for the suggestion and help - I really appreciate it!
PS - Note to all Hubbers - you can trust and depend on Scramble!

If I do not upload a photo for my profile, will it affect my author score?
