It's the lame computer person again :)

 

This site doesn't like the pics I took with my digital SLR - too many pixels.

 

So, I uploaded a similar pic onto my profile - can't get it to show on threads, etc.

 

Would someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

 

Thanks!

Hi there:

 

I know this site will not accept pictures no larger than 150 pixels by 150 pixels.

 

My 14 y/o says that he thinks you need to get a software to resize or reduce the pixels to make it fit here at this board.

 

This is what I come up with: http://graphicssoft....wreducesize.htm

 

Do you have a Windows XP? Because this said with having Windows XP or Vista will automatically reduce the pixels.

 

Humor me, I hope I am making sense...!

 

{{{hugs}}} :)

You made perfect sense but I still have my dilemna

 

I didn't bother trying to reduce my own pics - I downloaded a similar pic as the one I use for my avatar on other sites -
it shows up on my profile and such but not in my posts.

 

And, I do have Windows XP - no automatic pixel reduction :(

 

The thing that confuses me is the fact that my pic is "up" in certain sections but not in my posts.

 

I must be missing something :(

 

If you can think of anything else, I'd be quite grateful :)

 

((hugs))

Thanks so much for trying to help this clueless person.....I can be SUCH a dummy sometimes!

 

I uploaded a photo into the photo section on here - just realized there is a separate section
for avatar (duh-uh) so, I finally got the photo on the site.

 

Can't say I can't believe I didn't notice the avatar section before - I do stupid things like that
all the time :)

 

Thanks again!

 

(((hugs)))

 

Carol

I'm thinking...would y'all be happy if I did a signature with a bit more 'stuff'? I'll keep it simple and will include what autoimmune diseases that I have and such so I'm not repeating myself over and over to someone new and perhaps to even some of the 'older' people here? I don't really include thyroid levels anymore cuz I got tired of doing these and I do know what I'm doing with my levels now.

 

So how's this signature? I'll appreciate any feedback.

 

{{{hugs}}} :)

 

P.S. Chris, your signature is just great...! :D

I think both Chris' and Linda's signatures are perfect!

 

Since each of us has his/her own "thing" going on, an appropriate signature
not only tells the individual's story but helps others realize that there are
certain similarities with Graves' disease, yet each of us has his/her own
situation - some of it Graves'-related, some not.

 

And, sorry I take so long to realize there's stuff going on here - I link
directly to the regular forum and have to remind myself to come here :)

 

PS to Chris - thanks about the "avatar compliment" - I just love growing
sunflowers (although I couldn't get a pic from my garden to upload so
I had to grab one from the internet :) )
