Profile Picture Issue

No matter what I try I cannot add a profile picture...I keep getting "
Upload of file failed."

I have resized images to far below the requirements of 300 X 300 pixels and 161.7kb limits. Does not matter. Any help or ideas on what to do or try. Is there a certain format the picture has to be in? I have tried Jpeg and GIF...

thanks in advance for help///

Are you trying to add the trailer pic to your signature?

I think I used the 1st link in post #2 of Ford Idaho's forum link.

Visited States Map: States Visited Map, Where I've Been Map, Colored Map of The United States, Map of States Visited.

Thanks to Ford Idaho, I didn't have to go huntn' for that previous thread.

First, it sounds like you're following the right steps- but let's double-check them. For updating your *profile* picture (which is different than your avatar), these are the steps that need to be followed:
  1. Prepare the photo
    - It must be at or less than 300x300 pixels in height and width
    Click image for larger version

Name:	Step1 - Prepare Photo.jpg
Views:	489
Size:	49.8 KB
ID:	47146

  2. Click "User CP" up in the green bar
    
Name:   Step2 - Click User CP.jpg
Views: 440
Size:  25.1 KB

  3. Click "Edit Profile Picture" on the left-side navigation
    
Name:   Step3 - Click Edit Profile Picture.jpg
Views: 430
Size:  21.1 KB

  4. Click "Choose File" under Option 2
    
Name:   Step4 - Click Choose File for Option 2.jpg
Views: 495
Size:  33.3 KB

  5. Find your picture and click Open
    Click image for larger version

Name:	Step5 - Find and Pick Photo - Click Open.jpg
Views:	355
Size:	47.6 KB
ID:	47150

  6. Verify the photo is selected and click "Save Changes"
    
Name:   Step6 - Click Save Changes.jpg
Views: 464
Size:  31.4 KB

  7. Upon completion, you'll go back to the Edit Profile Picture page and your photo will be shown
    Click image for larger version

Name:	Step7 - Done - Profile Picture is Shown.jpg
Views:	314
Size:	32.1 KB

I've also sent you a PM with my email address. Please send me a copy of the photo that you're trying to set.
