Filetypes


Are there certain filetypes accepted for avatars? I've tried umpteen times to make it work correctly, and looked for anything which might indicate that the site doesn't accept PNG picture types, but have found nothing about the matter. Maybe it's just something with my image server. (Deviantart) Answers greatly appreciated.

Re: Filetypes


I believe any image filetype will work, .jpg, .gif, .png, ect.

My avatar is a .png, it is more likely that the problem lies with your host.

Re: Filetypes


Whatever is supported by the browsers will work.

I'd stick to gif, jpg and png only.

Re: Filetypes


Greatest Yoyo, Are you using images tags when you try to add your avatar? If so, you don't need them. I just put it on my board as an avatar without any probs. Just put the http straight into your profile as it is:
http://images.deviantart.com/i/2003/49/d/7/Itty_Bitty_Raccoon.png

You should get:

Re: Filetypes


Thanks for the help, but stupid me, I forgot that Deviantart doesn't support direct linking. Haha, that explains alot of things.

To a working image server that I'm not out of views on! *Wooosh!* emoticon
