"Failure to upload temporary file."

Whhhhhhyyyyyyy? [childish whinge]

I have more than fifty posts (for a day, now); it's teeny tiny, like 80 x 60.

The picture must be precisely 175 X 240 pixels.

To accomplish this, open the picture, then click the button on the bottom that is a blue square with a diagonal line going through it. It is usually second from the right. If you hover the mouse over it, it says something like 'closes this program and opens one for editing.'

Click that button, your picture will open in Paint. You will have to size it twice. Once by dragging with the black arrows to make it smaller, and once by clicking the select button on the left, then drag the white dots at the corners to get rid of the white background. It does take a little practice. The size of the image is on the lower right on the task bar. Well, just above. Save and upload.

I think there is an easier way to make a box come up and see the size, but I couldn't figure it out just now.

Ah, I see. Thank you :)

ETA - does it have to be resized exactly like that? I resized to that size in Photobucket and it still doesn't like it. I'll try the other way...

ETA again (:P) -- woop! Magic.
