I wanted to update my avatar or profile picture... How do I go about doing so?

 

Thanks

Mandy, this is what I did the last time I updated my profile pic.  There may be a simpler way, but this is the only way I know how to do it.  Click on your name where your avatar shows, then click the 'edit' tab.  There should be a place to upload a new photo from your computer through a browse button. The thing is, the profile photo needs to be small, so I save a copy of the photo I want to use in my picture file then edit it using a simple Paint program through windows.  I use 'stretch/skew' and lower the percentage evenly on both down to about 25%.  Your photo needs to end up being a maximum of 100 x 100 and no bigger than 30 kb.  When you have it the right size, just click the browse button to get it here, click save at the bottom of the screen and it should work.  You might have to refresh your page in order to see your new profile photo, too.  I know I did.

Ah ha!  Thanks Ziva's dad, I was having trouble with my pic files being too big.  I'm not really very computer savvy so thanks for the hint.  My solution was to go to my camera and changing the settings in it.  That worked just fine so far except that I have to take new pictures of my little pretty, ...oh darn, LOL

You can change their size in Microsoft paint. And most cameras come with photo editing software.
