    I have a picture I want to use as avatar, but when I put it in I got a message saying that it wasnt jpeg. It is currently in a bmp file. Does anyone know how to change it to jpeg or if it is even possible. Thanks

    I don't know how other photo manipulation software works, so I'll tell you how *I* do it using Photoshop.

    I simply use the "Save for Web" option and I can then save as .jpg or .gif.

    Maybe other photo manipulation software programs have that option?
