  • "This JPEG image has the incorrect file extension" error

    Hello,

    I am getting a "This JPEG image has the incorrect file extension." when i try to upload an avatar. The image is a .gif....can you only upload jpegs for avatars? Is that the same for profile pictures?

    Thanks,

    Marcos

    Also, the avatar I am trying to upload is from a different forum of mine. So I tried doing it both from the location and from my computer and same error.

        Probably something about the image itself. Is the extension jpeg or jpg?

          it is a .gif that I downloaded from another vbulltin forum I am on, which is why it is so weird. So can you upload .gifs to avatars?

            There is no problem uploading .gifs as avatars. Your image probably has the wrong extension. Probably an image that is thumbnailed or had its animation removed and saved as a jpeg due to older licensing issues with the proprietary GIF format.
