Default Answered: How Do I Change My Background On Profile?

So, I'm new here, but I've gotten around quite well. I just can't figure out how to change my profile background. I did read a How To, but I don't have a section on my profile for picture albums so I'm not sure how to upload backgrounds.

Never mind, I had to be a polar bear to get it to work!

Try to check the size of the image you want to use. As the control panel states, the maximum size of your desired avatar is 125x125 pixels, or 48.8. KB.
Find the file on your computer (assuming it's windows), right click, and select "Properties".
Here is the image itself,
Click the image to open in full size.
and here is the filesize (the size of the image itself is 1456x1456):
Click the image to open in full size.

So, this photo would obviously be way too big to use as an avatar. There is a simple fix, however:
Go on a site like this one
Upload the image from your computer
and then resize it (be sure to click 'custom size'):
Click the image to open in full size.
In this example, I'm resizing the image to 125x125 pixels (which is BI's maximum avatar size, as shown earlier.)

As you can see, the image is now at 32.3 KB. So, in other words, it's well under BI's maximum filesize of 48.8 KB...
Click the image to open in full size.

...and, voila; I am easily able to upload it for use as my avatar.
Click the image to open in full size.

doubt this will help but i tried lol
