I am trying to upload my picture on the profile page unfortunately the picture which is about 1.53MB in jpg format, am getting the message that jpg is not allowed format. I chaged it into pdf reducing its size to 0.99MB yet it could not be uploaded, getting the message that .pdf is not allowed format.

please assist, am a newbie here--Edgar Telesphory 08:15, 26 November 2009 (UTC)

Hi Edgar,

Something sounds strange as they are both allowed file types. Were you uploading the file at:

Were you logged in at the time?

Can you copy and paste the entire message that you get into a reply to me?

Could the file be a different format but with the .jpg or .pdf extension?

Could you try another .jpg file that is smaller? You can always upload your picture and overwrite it once we figure out the problem.

The more details I have to work with the easier it will be.

Good Luck
