Try emailing the photo to yourself, and when prompted, use the the smallest format. Then save that photo to your photo album. I use my desktop, since photo editing is easier than with a phone, so I am not sure this will work.
I looked at the support page for Hoop.La and it appears that you do not need to have a 100x100 photo, as the software automatically resizes. It also says that it automatically crops, but if you can use a cropped picture, or take a selfie that is square, it might be better. Another issue may be with your phone and browser. What phone and operating system do you have?
I was able to upload using my iPad (iOS 8.3). I did not need to change the file size, but I cropped it to be square, so it did not distort.
Uploading a personal avatar is different than inserting a photo into a post, I think. The avatar is changed through the edit profile portal.
Oh, OK. I just use my photo library on my device. Good to have different ideas/work arounds if the OS or browser does not cooperate.
i emailed a photo from my iphone 6 plus to my windows computer. When i choose to upload the photo it keeps asking what i want to open the file with and a box pops up with multiple programs, but whatever i choose, nothing works. ??
When you use your iPhone, you cannot choose a photo from your photo library? With iOS it should default to that. The only issue I had was with the need for a square photo, because it would not resize properly. I did this on my iPad, and just checked my iPhone 6 and it offered the same options: Take Photo or Photo Library. The phone was a bit more fiddly, because I had to switch to standard view to be able to get to the Edit Profile link.
Jan- It looks like you changed your avatar pic to one with a seascape in the background. I also have an iPhone 6+ and I just uploaded a new avatar pic and there was no problem doing this. This one is similar to my last avatar (same original pink Margaritaville "It's 5 OClock Somewhere" T shirt and black shorts), but a different shot taken on the same day on Mulberry Street in NYC.
Poucho- You have to hit the "update settings" box after you upload the pic otherwise it will not save your changes. It's very simple to do with the IPhone. No reason to email the pics elsewhere- just upload it straight from your Photo Library.
Yeah, I did forget to mention that you need to update the settings, otherwise it does not save the change.
ok, i did it right from my phone and it worked fine..lol thanks guys
Great! Nice pic!
thanks Jan.. you too
