I didn't have any problems uploading my avatar, but maybe your picture is to 'big', as in big with mb's?

Maybe it helps when you make your picture you want to use a bit smaller?

I thought it was your own choice to be hidden behind that paper bag.  :2funny:

Or you just open the picture in Paint (that's on every microsoft computer), choose for "change size" (or something like that, it's in the left site of your toolbaar, next to 'select'
Choose the size you want, for an avatar it can be very small, for exemple 10%
And save as.

Easiest way I think.
