You need to use a photo editing package and make sure the photo is no larger than 1200 x 1200 pixels - and has a file size fo greater than 250K

Hi Craigyboybmw1,
Do you have a smart phone?
If you have then add the app
(image size) you can then import any photo from your albums and resize it to 80 x 80 width x height . Save it then upload it as your profile image.

Hi ruralman , I hear you lol I have an HTC1 I downloaded the image sizer but from what I can read about the HTC is it uses ultra pixels and it is not based on megapixel , the sizer gives me different sizes but doesn't go as low as 80x80 I think that's my problem lol ,But again I really appreciate your time thanks so much :-)

Hi Craigyboybmw1,
On my image sizer if you press the arrow top right you get a choice of width and height hence I entered 80 x 80 and bobs your uncle it works
