As per the instructions below.
You need to edit your new avatar to these specs and can be quite difficult. It took me ages to get mine right.

"Displays a small graphic image below your details in posts. Only one image can be displayed at a time, its width can be no greater than 120 pixels, the height no greater than 120 pixels, and the file size no more than 31 KB."

There are lots of programs out there that will resize you photo to the correct size. I use irfanview. It works great. Open your photo in the program, resize it, save it as resized, the upload it into your avatar on cruisemates. It sounds hard, and it took me a while to figure it out. Once you do it, it is so easy. Do several photos because sometimes they just don't come out very good (blurry), it depends on the photo you are trying to resize. They cannot be any larger than 120x120. Have fun playing with them.

Go ahead and send me the photo. I will resize it, send it back and, if you like, put it in your Profile.

Take care,
Mike
