Hello,

I looked into the faq and used its search function but got no usable info.

What size should the avatars be and how do I upload it to the forum?

thank you,

a.

When you go to post your avatar (under the User CP link on the blue bar above the threads), you'll see this message:

The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 100 pixels or 195.3 KB

I know some forums require that you post so many messages before you are aloud to upload an avatar. I don't recall if Newtek's was this way or not. If you see a place for the avatar in your profile settings, but no upload feature, then that's why.

Thank you, I guess I didn't look as thoroughly as I thought.

I'm trying to figure how even a 100x100 pixel jpg image could get to 195 KB. The most I think I've managed to achieve at that size is 90 KB.

It's 100x100 'OR' 195kb.

I believe it's because they allow animated gifs as well, so the size could increase beyond a single frame.
