Invalid url for avi?

I tried to change my avi to this new site I found but it says invalid url? I can go to the url w/o a problem: http://babynamey.com/b/mjwha7ctovzha...3tkojzpr6a.png
Am I doing something else wrong, is it too big and that's the problem??

Well, it's definitely too big, so that's a possibility. Why don't you right-click the image and save it onto your puter, then download it onto Photobucket (or similar photo storage site). That album lets you specify measurements now for reducing pic size--put in 150x whatever the other measurement will automatically reduce to and then download THAT pic.
LMK if that works for you. If not, come back and I'll see what else we can do

Well I would try that but it has a ticker on it, counting how pg I am, so if I save the image wouldn't it be forever "stuck"?

Yes. Ticker files are too large for the avi and siggy sections here on DS, so you'd have to save it as is and then change it manually (or keep resaving it w/ the new stats) daily or whatever. Total PITB, but not many ways around a ticker w/o all that work due to the lg. amt. of bandwidth they take up.
There are a few mamas on here who have lafemmebonita-style avi tickers and they resave every week or so when the ticker changes.

Oh ok, thank you! I did not know that, makes more sense now.
