    Avatar? - Invalid file?

    Advertisement



    I'm trying to put my custom avatar from Yahoo! on Pinstack. I generate the url and paste it on my profile, but keep getting a msg that it is an invalid file. Why?

    I tried png and jpg, large and small - same result. "Invalid file"

    Anyone know why and how to get this to work?
    I would really like to not have to download it, but rather by putting in the url I thought it would auto update everytime I change it.

    So anyone know what I'm missing??? Thanks for the help guys!

    could be a tiff when u should use png or jpg/jpeg also

    Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 50 by 65 pixels or 10.0 KB (whichever is smaller).

    I'm entering the URL directly from Yahoo! and they let you change between jpg or png - but no luck. Also why I tried both large and small (that they generate) as they don't tell you how big it is - but the small is only a square of face. :grr:

    Thanks blankaant for the solution. Though I haven't found this kind of problem yet but I have saved it for future use.
