i found it easier to link the avatar to a picture on the web. my file size was somewhere close to 50000 bytes, but still it has to be 75 x 75 pixels. if you want to upload your picture on the net, you can do so freely. upload it via a free web site hosting service, like Top Cities or similar. this is great to have as you can get any of your picts or film clips on the net.

What format file is it?

Mine is a jpeg (72 ppi), and apart from being aesthetically challenged, has given no trouble!

I had some difficulty as well; kept saying less than 75 x 75, which it was.

Re-created the gif one more time and it all of a sudden worked.

Keep trying!
