    user pic

    I'm trying to attach a user pic to my profile, but I get an error message stating that the file size must be no more than 5kb. I checked the properties and it's only 4.90.

    <img src=/S/help.gif border=0 alt=help width=23 height=15>

    Hi, I've had the same sort of problems sometimes when tring to post a file as an attachment. (It looks like it should get under the 100K limit, but the message comes back that it's too big!) Without getting into too much technical detail, can I suggest you just try to slim down your picture that little bit more. If it's a problem for you editing the format or size, then perhaps you could post thje pic as an attachment and one of the Loungers may be able to help with a photo editing tool. HTH

    Probably the difference in the way it's calculated as typically shown in the attachment below.
    1K is actually 1,024
    1.024 x 4K9 = 5.0176
