Question Unanswered: Can anyone help me with my picture problem?

I've recently taken to entering avatar/signature contests for other people, I can design the graphics just fine... But when I try to upload the picture (to test them out) I get this message:
Click the image to open in full size.
Do I need to save it at a different jpg? What does jpg and gif even mean!

Help?

Well I'm not sure there is a correct file extension you have to use for an avatar.
But I always use .png .jpg looks fuzzy to me.
The . whatever is just a file extension.
There are many different file formats for many different things.
But the most common on the internet is .png .gif and .jpg (jpeg)

.gif is what I mainly use for animations.
Why? Because animations really only work in .gif.

Try uploading it in .png or .jpg instead of what you are using and see if it works.
If not I'll try to further assist you.

I hope this helped!
Feel free to message me if you have any questions.

Alright....how are you uploading it?
Is it through WI, or an image-hosting site like Photobucket, Tinypic etc.?

Oh, and, did you save it via Lunapic?

I use the WI uploader thingy... I save it though Picnik, (that has an option on what to save it as, jpg, gif, ect) but it doesn't work. I save it though lunapic when Picnik doesn't work...

Alright.....try uploading it to [LINK] -> TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting and see if it allows you to upload it like that. If it won't take it, let me know.

If it does, you can copy the link labeled "IMG Code for Forums and Message Boards", and post it...that should work! The image will apear where the code is.

I think I've fixed it, I've been deleteing the jpg thing at the end of the name, and it works... I'm having trouble with the KB size, I can't seem to get much to fit without being a lot smaller then I'd like it. Do you know of any online resizing sites that will do animated images without warping or ruining the animation?

Well, the only way to make a GIF smaller is to remove some frames, or shrink the image. There are some sites that can shrink it...but they don't do it very well, and will fuzz it as it shrinks. And I don't really know of a site besides possibly Lunapic that does frame-editing.

If you're really stuck with trying to reduce a file size immensely, I'd get some help from Cocoabean...she's an expert at this kind of thing!!
