Resizing image for avatar?

I tried to resize a jpeg image with paint and after uploading it wont save as my avatar ? I get a message saying incorrect file extension. The image is a jpeg but I don't know if resizing in paint is causing the problem ? the image still says its a jpeg but it wont upload into the avatar?

Make sure the image is no more than 150 by 150 pixels or 78.1 KB (whichever is smaller) and make sure the file name is xxxxx.jpg

If you are still having an issue, post the image in this thread and I'll resize it for you and add it as your avatar.
