"Photo size is often an issue." --Bonnie

Very true, and members should consider this if they have issues getting an image uploaded into their profile for an avatar. Sometimes the system will resize the image...sometimes it won't. When uploading an image for an avatar, the process only recommends that the image should be larger than 200px... but doesn't seem to indicate a maximum size (maybe I've somehow missed that info). I've used images as small as 56X64 and as large as 315X295.

I've also noticed that on occasion .png files seem to be an issue. I'm not sure if it is specifically .png files, the size of a .png, or just coincidence.
