I decided to upload a new profile photo to my account and have encountered a problem. I deleted my old photo and tried uploading my new photo but the new file won't appear in the preview frame. I've tried different pictures, all jpgs, but with no success. Any suggestions?

Thats a problem with the current version of the board...which will no doubt be fixed in the upcoming upgrade ;-)

For now you can try hosting the image on an external host and point to the URL. Alternatively Mauserme has been able to fix for some.

Or try another format instead of jpeg.  I forget what the other one is . . .

It's ok Buzzard . Quite a few others have the same problem.  In fact the family resemblance  is striking.  Now there's a scary thought for you. :P

NPCs!

 

I host photos for free here:  https://picr.de/index.php

 

It is in German, though.  I don't speak German, but it's pretty straight forward.  Then you can direct your avatar to the URL after you uploaded and viola!  That's how I got my profile picture done.

Png won't work if file is too big.

I open all photos with MS Paint, Save As .png file. Haven't had a problem with posts doing it that way.
I do have my profile hosted elsewhere though.
