,
Check the limit on filesize.
If the filesize is the problem (your image is more than 10kB) compress the image or use one of the two I have made to different file sizes.

With paintshop,which is a typical image editor,pull down from the file menu:
Preferences>file format preferences
and for jpeg files set the compression level between 1 and 99(highly compressed)

yeah I was able to get my "Dumas" avitar to work by opening up using windows paint, and resizing it smaller and then save. Its a matter of trial N error to get the avitar to the size i wanted. resize too small and it will be tiny, if not resized small enough it wont work...

Scroll down to "My Avatar" and use upload pic option

Max picture size is 85 x 85 - the pics above look to all be 100 x 100
