    So this one bummed me out a bit;
    The max avatar size is 50KB (0,5MB), while the recommended avatar resolution is 200*200.

    I just spent 20 minutes in Photoshop trying to get the image to fit both numbers, and the only working way would be to limit the image to 3 colors .:ROFLMAO:

    (To any Administrator:)
    Maybe set the image limit to a full MB, or be even more generous than that?
    I'd like my avatar of me and Rapunzel to look better than just 3 colors and a few pixels. :p

      @Stefan99 it's like you talk Chinese here to me:). I'm no epxert at all to this. I just made a picture with my phone and used it as a avatar. The pics made by my phone do have 3.5 mb. I think it has more then 3 colours and a few pixels?

      @admin can probably explain it very well to you

        My best guess is that I have the beginner role, but still :p

          Have you tried uploading the original image? I believe it will automatically resize to fit the avatar space.

          1. XenForo doesn't do that I've read the source enough times to know.
          2. It went down...

          Try it now, if it works, please tell me what size it allowed you to use.

          I attempted to upload a file above 5 MB, and it partly worked. It kept uploading, but I didn't get the XenForo error message, so I assumed all was good. :)

          Don't you know what size you set it to? :ROFLMAO:

          That's not how it works. :ROFLMAO:
          You go to admin.php?user-groups/{ID}/edit#pg_avatarPermissions and set the size there, I'm 99% sure you limited the attachment size just now :ROFLMAO:

          The avatar container element is set to 192px by 192px regardless of the settings in the user group setting of the avatar-which I did just change in the user permissions settings to maximum, thanks for your input though. And I see your avatar is now as your requested?

          I could have sworn it was 200*200, as the change avatar overlay says, but oh well. :p

          Yeah, I now have the avatar I wanted, at a usable resolution, thanks. :cat:
