I sure am having a biznitch of a time trying to set my avatar. I 've looked through the FAQ, no help there. I've tried copying and pasting URLs, dragging pics from my desktop, nothing is working for me. Help, please? :roll:

I resized my avatar to 150x150 on PS and uploaded to tinypic dot com. then copy pasted the url-> UCP>Profile>edit avatar> to link off-site, and voila.

I have had the same struggle lol, I tried 5 different hosting sites with autodetect and manual pixel input, with 150x150 to 600x600, and tried your method last with tinypic.The closest i got was " we can not detect your pixel size, verify the URL" or something to this regard, all other tries are invalid URL. I'm sure there is a simple fix, but it is beyond me.

Solution for Desktop/Laptops:

the easiest thing is to upload the image to IMGUR

once it's uploaded, right click on the image, and select Open image in new tab. that should give you link that looks like:

Code: Select all
which can be then added to the Avatar field.

However if you still have an issue, just drop me a msg with the image you want to use and I can add it

Thank you Zin, this worked for me, however I had to manually add .jpeg to the image link at the very end, and also had to add the frame size.
