Currently IMVU users can upload an image as their profile picture in three ways:
1) Use the camera tool in the Dress Up feature of the 3D Chat Client and use the snapshot as their profile picture.
2) Use the "Upload Avatar Image" option available on the Account Settings page under the Profile Settings section and upload an image up to 39 KB in file size.
3) Use the Profile option within our Community Forums and upload an image up to 100 KB in file size.
We are going to remove the third option and users will no longer have the option to upload their profile picture using the forum profile.
We appreciate that our users sometimes prefer to use the forum profile option to upload larger sized images. So, we have increased the file size limit for the second, Account Settings option to 200 KB. This will be implemented shortly.
We hope the increased file size limit now available under Account Settings will ease any inconvenience caused by removal of the forum profile option to change your avatar pictures.
