Cannot post a picture to my profile
« on: December 27, 2011, 09:30:02 AM »
I am trying to post a picture to my profile from my flickr site and while the picture was uploaded it appears as a non-recognized icon. Is there a file size limit to the size of the picture uploaded? Any help is appreciated, cheers!
Peace....Love......Beer......

Your profile pic is pointing at your flickr page for that photo.  You need to point to the url of the photo itself (which flickr makes as hard as possible to find).  Try using http://farm3.staticflickr.com/2740/4387921094_c8160c5b1a_z.jpg

Should show up as...



...although, for your profile pic, you still might need to resize.

Oh, and love the backdrop :)

Thanks! Worked like a charm, although it looks like I will need to re-size when I get a chance!

Gotta love NOLA! ;)
In a humble log cabin off an unregarded back road, somewhere, deep in the heart of Pennsylvania’s hill country, we find our intrepid hero — the Brush Valley Brewer.
