I have the same problem. WHERE did you find the answer? My photo just won't take, and I'm not THAT bad-looking. It doesn't like the URL or something. My wife couldn't even crack it, and she's a genius!

Hey you two! I have the same question.
Any chance you could post a link to that forum item that I can't seem to find?

Thanks!

Steve

I remember when I did mine, there were some strict specifications about photo dimensions & size...it took me a few attempts to get it right. :?

Then I found the simplest way, was to:

1. upload a picture to my Taxi.com music hosting page, then
2. link to the preview of that picture. :idea:

Thanks for the help Stuart! :) However, I try putting in the website address where my taxi.com account's photo is ...

http://www.taximusic.com/hosting/pics.php?userid=47389

yet it still says "The URL you specified is invalid.".

Maybe I'm using the wrong link or something?

If you can post the entire URL you are trying to use for your picture here, we can help you.

If you did upload to your taxi profile and are using that image, first log out, right click on your profile image, copy paste that URL.

But before you upload any image URL to the forum acct, paste that same URL into a browser and make sure your expected image comes up. The hardest part of all of this is finding a place to host it. Second hardest part is restricting the size to 90x90 pixels or whatever the restriction is.

[The third 'gotcha' with images on the web can sometimes be in cases where the image is one file type, but has been renamed with another file type. For example, image.png gets accidentally renamed to image.jpg. You may still see the image on your computer, but some browsers choke on this kind of thing.]
