Pic size for MSN

  terendak_uk 17:41 18 Sep 2005

Be grateful for any tips...I often change my display pic when "chatting". However, often I get a " the file you selected is not a valid image file....."
I scan and save as JPG.....is there a partic spec that always works? I have tried many variations to no avail.

Tried MSN etc...no answers. Am I looking in the wrong place? Be grateful for any pointers.

It sounds like your images are becoming corrupt.

Try opening them in Paint and use the save as option and save the image to another file-name and see if that image works.

Tried P'shop, then PSP and Irfanview....all give same result..with a partic file. Can open any of the pics, no prob. If it's a TIF, for eg, I'll open any of above, convert pic to jpeg and save for MSN display. WOrks OK some times..other times not. There must be a "spec" that MSN favours?
