Are you uploading something with the wrong extension file? That's the only problem I can think of.

Is it .png, .gif, .jpg, what? All images have a tag. When I have that problem, it's usually because something is saved as a .gif and it's not a .gif. Like...if the icons in my sig were saved as .png, that would be invalid because they're moving, which moving images are .gif images.

I've had this problem before. It should be able to be solved by changing the file extension.

Techy people, feel free to do a better job of explaining btw. I kinda suck at this. lol

Usually when I get this problem I just open it in iaza.com, click "Convert to PNG" (I guess it's just my preferred extension? XD) and then save to my computer and reupload. It works just fine after that.
