What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I am going to make a new avatar, but upload it directly using the new upload feature. I didn't see any information about the allowed sizes.

What is the maximum size, in pixels and bytes, for uploading. In addition, what are the displayed sizes, in the user card on each post and in the user profile?

32x32 on the post, 64x64 on the card, 128x128 on your profile. – Bart Feb 28 '13 at 18:56
@MartijnPieters The new upload feature, yes. – Slurpee Feb 28 '13 at 19:09
@Slurpee: "Gravatar" is an external service, so I removed the references to gravatar from your post. – Martijn Pieters Feb 28 '13 at 19:10
@Bart so that means that to have a nice looking image on all devices, you need to upload a 256x256 image. – Wouter J Feb 28 '13 at 21:44
any limit on the file size? – jacky chou Mar 1 '13 at 9:17
Feature request: Specify the size in user interface where we upload the image. – Basil Bourque Jul 3 '13 at 18:25
