Uploading Photos in Voices

For best results, when uploading a photo or logo to your profile or to a community, make sure your photo is at least 100 x 100 pixels in size and is square. If you upload a photo that is not square (such as one that is portrait-shaped) Voices will crop the edges to make it square, sometimes cutting off a part of the image you'd like to keep. To avoid this, crop your photo in a simple photo editor first, then upload it to Voices.
