BTW, what's the difference between the profile picture and an avatar?
Profile pictures are small pictures, which are displayed within your user profile. Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 300 by 300 pixels or 161.7 KB (whichever is smaller) for your profile pic.
Avatars are small graphics that are displayed under your username whenever you post. Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 120 by 120 pixels or 100.0 KB (whichever is smaller).
Usually, the problem with failed uploads either for a profile pic or an avatar is the image size is too large. You will need to scale it down to the max numbers provided above, before uploading.
You can use the same pic (or different ones) for both your profile pic and/or avatar pic.
