Thank Trystan, not me  :)

Funnily enough, it used to be the other way round, before  ::)

I've split this off from the original topic, to keep it more visible, till we've sorted out the glitches.

Most avatars survived "The Change" but some of you may have to re-load them.

At the moment, it seems the best results come from:

- go to Profile
- go to RootsChat Profile Information
- click on I will upload my own picture:
- and browse your computer to find the image
- click on Change Profile

Me too!  :D  It makes a change for me to do something the right way when I should have been doing it differently!  ::)

Like Gadget, I had always loaded my avatar the way you are now suggesting, I didn't know there was any other way.

I've checked and my avatar is only 48 x 64px and 7.85KB, but is animated, does that mean it will be deleted?

Liz,

No your image is fine, it won't be deleted as it's compact enough as it is.  ;)

That's great, I thought I was going to have to think of something else.

Just in case anybody else has the same worry as Lizzie, I've edited the text to say:

In the case of animated GIFs, resizing won't work, so if they are over the limits, we will have to delete them.
