[resolved] uploaded file not valid image - header (5 posts)

    I am using the Expound theme for my site, and am attempting to upload an image for the header. I created a PhotoShop image in the exact dimensions specified by WordPress, saved it as a jpg, but when I try to upload I get "The uploaded file is not a valid image. Please try again." I've tried saving in several formats and nothing seems to work. What am I doing wrong?

    try saving it different format, and see if that works.

    Thanks, Tara! I just figured it out - instead of "saving as" in PhotoShop, I selected "save for web" - which saved it as a .gif and it works perfectly. :)

    I was having the same problem. How do you change a picture's format from jpg to .gif? Thanks.
