I am trying to modify my profile picture. In my profile I can update it with a new picture:

Enter image description here

Enter image description here

But after a save it shows only a black square:

Is there anything I'm missing in the process?

This appear to be due to the resize feature of Imgur which munge transparent to black. Is there a way to add a transparent image today?

    Is your picture by any chance black on transparent? – Cai Nov 30 '16 at 15:16
  • Yes it's black on transparent. – Pilou Nov 30 '16 at 15:18
  • The accepted answer says the issue has been fixed on his post. – Pilou Nov 30 '16 at 15:20
  • If you read comments on the dupe you can see it was never really fixed, or at least not for long, it certainly still happens now anyway – Cai Nov 30 '16 at 15:22
  • @Cai yes so what's the process, call it a bug? Ask a new question? – Pilou Nov 30 '16 at 15:28
  • This is a bug on imgur side, where sometimes (not always) the thumbnail creation cause transparent image to be black. You just have to re-upload, until it works. e.g. I uploaded it again, and the thumbnail this time works fine. – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Nov 30 '16 at 15:48
  • @Cai well, "sometimes" is better than "never". I won't call it a fix, just making something bad a bit better. But still, trying enough times should work... – Shadow Wizard Wearing Mask Nov 30 '16 at 15:50
  • @ShadowWizard It's a starnge behaviour, with your image (the re-upload) it kind of works (the picture is cropped), but with mine it still do the black square. – Pilou Nov 30 '16 at 16:14
