The original post

Now all uploaded images on MS are resized automatically - you will notice the rules are changed from strict "150x150" to "150x150 or more", which means you can upload any image bigger than 150x150 and it will be resized to the required format. This should make things easier for our contributors.

The changes affect uploaded pictures for:

- Avatars (jpg only)
- Signature pictures (jpg only)
- Bands
- Albums
- Videos
- Logos
- Musicians
- News
- Events
- Locations
- Articles
- Reviews
- Interviews
- Funny stuff

I just quoted you, so you'd get a message about it. I tried to resubmit the logo twice yesterday and both times it was regected for not uploading the actual image. The first time although I was pretty sure I selected it, I thought maybe It got lost somewhere. But the second time I'm so damn sure I attached the image that I at least wanted to ask if there's a possible bug in that image handling code. I'll try a third time, maybe it's just firefox.

I just tried uploading logos from my testing account (no special permissions), one that needed to be resized and one within size limits. I used Firefox. Both uploaded fine...

Funny enough mine did too this time. Whatever I did wrong yesterday. Thanks for your time anyway.
edit: It got scaled down again btw. At least qualitywise.

Was it Kreator? The logo is 39Kb, no artefacts. What version did you upload?

Browsercache. Should have thought of that. OK, a final thanks and I'll look out for that next time.

This is great....saves a lot of trouble. Well, I'm not familiar with Photoshop any more (its been four years since High School and in the Army doing non-sense). It would come back to me I think if I could work Photoshop in German! haha

Thanks for the help though!

So you dont have autocrop, does that mean if I submit a 150x200 it will stretch and scrunch?

Yes, I explained the reason for this earlier in this thread.

Please remember people that you still have to remove borders! The auto resize does not remove those

You remove those borders by opening the image in PhotoShop, IrFanView or similar programs and simply cut out the part of the picture you want to use (the image inside the borders).

If it fits within the guidelines, you probably just need to refresh the page (F5).
