1) Why does my photo or video upload seem to stall or not finish?

Your file maybe too large. Please DO NOT upload any photos that are over 1 mb, as this is too large a file for our conversion application. Your photos should not be more than 640 x 480 pixels. Your videos should be under a minute or two; they should be no longer than a commercial on TV.

2) How do I tell if my photo is the correct size?

Most PC users have a program on their computer called PAINT; look for it in your accessories folder. Right Click on the photo; click "Open With" PAINT program. Once the photo is open, Click "Image", Click "Attributes". You will see a box that show the "Width" and "Height". It should say 640 x 480 or lower. If your image is larger than this and you are having trouble uploading, you will need to resize your picture because the connection on your end is "timing out." This is a common problem for dial-up users.

3) How do I re-size my photo?

If you are using PAINT, Click on "Image", then Click "Resize/Reskew". This will bring up a box where you can change the size of the photo by percentage until it reaches 640 x 480. You may have to repeat this process and re-check the attributes until your photo is an acceptable size. Remember to rename and save your photo on your desktop so that you can easily find it.

4) I am still having trouble uploading my video!

Ok, just email us the video (use the editor link above) and we will do our best to get it up on the site for you. Just be sure to send the video from the email address that you have registered with us so that we will know where to post it. Once it is up, you can go in and edit title, etc.

5) Can I upload a video and reference it in my Classified Ad?

Yes, you can! We encourage it! But please be aware that anyone with a FREE text-only ad referring readers to their Gallery for photos or videos will have their text ad pulled and can be banned from the site for this infraction.

6) Why is my icon in the Forum different from other users?

Your icon is based on your postings. It changes when you reach a certain number of posts. You may though, upload your own avatar.
