    Make sure the picture is sized correctly.  If it's too big, it won't work.

    Good grief. That took forever to update. I don't think the problem was on your end, sometimes the area where the avatars are stored is wonky.

    Why is my picture resizing?  How do I keep it from doing that?  It is supposed to be 107x160 and the forum is resizing it to 140x160.  ???

    Thanks!

    Why is my picture resizing?  

    Who knows?

    I downloaded your pic, and uploaded it instead of linking. It looks normal now.

    Is this one of your quilts? I'd like to see the whole thing.

    Thanks for resolving that, Verena. I'm not sure why that re-sizing happens differently for uploads versus linked images.

    Thanks Verena!  I tried the upload and it kept hanging up so I switched to the link.  I'll try the upload next time I change it.

    It's actually the whole quilt, it's a self portrait I did for a class.  Each student had to do a self portrait and most everyone's was very serious and realistic.  My tablemate got very angry that I had done a cartoon and asked if the picture meant I had an empty head.  I said it was an accurate portrayal.  ;D  I use it for my logo.

    It's roughly the size of a sheet of typing paper, 8 1/2 x 11.  Fused applique, machine quilted and some beading.

    I think I had to upload it four times before it "took." Something is odd about where the avatars are stored.

    I really like the quilt. The colors, the character, everything.

    Just wanted to say hi, Betsy and you let you know I love your quilt.  Why would anyone want to insult you for that?  It's beautiful, artistic and says a lot in my opinion.

    Have a great day.
