    What types of picture formats and sizes can be uploaded on the new profiles?

    I tried to upload some new pictures for my profile.  Neither file that I tried to use worked.  Any thoughts as to why?

    It is probably a format issue. Jpeg is the universal format. GIF works and so does png. I think there are a few others that also work.

    The other issue could be size. If you shot the picture with your digital camera, you possibly shot at the highest definition possible, which makes for a huge file, the dimensions could be right, but if you shot at 1,000 dpi, it is a massive file. Monitors handle 72 dpi. Increasing the resolution does not affect that you see on the screen. If someone prints the picture, it will be washed out and not as clear. You can go up to 300 if you think it is needed.

    If you are going directly from your camera to the internet, you might be using a format unique to that camera manufacturer. You will then need to import the picture into Photoshop, or some less expensive editing program so you can adjust the resolution.

    Finally, the file may have a corruption that allows you to view it but fouls up all those 1s and 0s in the transmission process. Hope this helps.

    There is currently a bug that prevents uploading JPG files when the file extension is in all upper case. We're working on a fix that will go out in the next few days. That's likely the issue since many cameras use upper case file extensions.

      Thanks!  That sounds like that might be part of the problem.  My camera does label that way.  Oddly though, I seem to be fine uploading onto hubs.  I really appreciate the update!
