Default Answered: Customize my profile?!

I was customizing my profile, so I uploaded the images to my album. When I copied the image's URL to my customization page it said it was invalid. I figured I did something wrong, so I checked the customization guide, but I did everything correctly. Any ideas?

I agree with luv2wrtieNS about trying to add your profile picture differently.

This is how I add a custom background to my profile page:

You must make sure the image you want to use is in a PROFILE album. Pictures used for your Profile background MUST be in a PROFILE album.

Click the image to open in full size.

Double click your desired image. When it opens go to the text under Picture URL. Do a Control "A" (Select all) then Control "C" (Copy). You will now have the URL you need copied into memory.

Click the image to open in full size.

Go back to your profile main page and click on Customize Profile.

Click the image to open in full size.

In the very first section you will see background image. Do a Control "A" (Select all) then Control "V" (Paste).

Click the image to open in full size.

Select the Repeat function that works for your image. You may have to play with this.

Click the "save" right underneath it.

Go to the very bottom and click "Save Changes".

Click the image to open in full size.

Make sure you save it in both of these places.


Go back to your user profile and your new image should be there. You may have to go back and play around with the repeat to make it work best for you.

Good Luck. I hope you can get it done now. The most common mistakes people make are not having their image in a profile album and not saving in the two places.

I think you have to enter the IMG code instead of the image URL, but I'm not sure.
Good luck!

As far as I know, don't you have to upload it to your specific profile album? And then you click the little picture icon, and select the picture from there. I never copy & paste anything, LOL.

I've been having a lot of glitches with my albums lately....If you're doing it the way you always have, it might just be the server change glitching up. Wait a little maybe?
