    Not sure I can help. Do you not have the option at all? Or is it not accepting the picture? If the file is too big, it won't take.

    No it's giving me the option. It just won't load it. It's about the same size as my last one. I'm going 2 try again.

    When I say too large, I mean the file size itself, not necessarily the size of the picture (although that can also be too large).

    Did you try a different one to see if it worked? If no other pictures will work, then it's an issue only @TerribleTowelFlying might be able to help with. Only he has control of the nuts and bolts of this place. I'm sorry I'm not being much help. But other than the really obvious trouble shooting, I'm afraid I'm out of my depth.

    Exact same as the one I have up there. It's even smaller file size than the one I have. So...???? Is it cause I got fish on a stringer in the pic?

    When I Googled "STD", this is the only image that appeared. Probably not what you were looking for? ;)

    It's either file type, file size or image size. Those are the only reasons.

    Can you post the picture in this thread so we can look at it? Or upload it to imgur or something like that and post a link?

    Hmm. Exact same file type as my now Avatar, and smaller file size as my Avatar. Heck. I had trouble with my now Avatar. That's why I started this the Very first time.

    If you go here and click "choose photo or video" and pick the image from your computer, the post the URL from the page that it uploads to, we can look at it to check the technical aspects of the image to see why it might not be working:
