I was trying to upload the image that I use for all of my social media sites to this one particular site and no matter how much I tried it wouldn't upload. I, then tried to resize it. At first, I thought the site was having problems and I started to contact technical support. I decided not to do that. I tried uploading a different picture. It instantly uploaded! So, I knew it wasn't a technical problem. I guess, I could of used another picture but I like to use the same picture so people know it's me. That's when I learned that I needed to change my gif image to a jpg.
This wasn't the first time this had happened to me but I didn't take any action. Reluctantly, I did end up using another picture but as I said before I really like to use the same picture because then people know it's me. This time I really didn't want to give up. I wanted to find out what was causing this problem. I did some research online and I was able to find Zamzar.com. It is really an easy site to use. It was a life-saver for me.
