How do I get a picture under my name on my posts (avatar)?

Go to My Place. Click on Edit Profile, and then Avatar Settings from the next screen. Click on the Browse button, and find the file on your computer - it can be up to 512kb, and in JPG, GIF, or PNG format.

(To check the size of your file, go to Windows Explorer. Find your file, right click on the file name, and choose Properties from the pop-up menu. The file size is towards the center of the information that you’ll see, shown under Size.)

Once you've selected your file, click Proceed, and voila - an avatar!

Some systems do have an issue with Preview and avatars. If you're having difficulty, try skipping the Preview, and just choosing Proceed.

If you need help resizing an avatar, post in the Technical Support Forum for assistance.

There are two places you can set a pic - make sure you're going to Edit Profile, and then Avatar Settings, not Edit Photo.

Also, try skipping the preview if you're having trouble, and just clicking Proceed.

Is your file under 512kb? What format?

Thank you. It finally worked. I kept trying to get it to work but I must have been doing something wrong. You are an angel.

Just wondering if animated gif's are allowed here, and if so, can someone turn off viewing them? (so annoying if you ask me:)

I see you can turn off avatars but I think I am going to go with ignore user because I like seeing everyone else's.

I would still like to know if they are allowed.

Cosmicangela - if you're previewing your avatar, try skipping the preview, and just clicking proceed.

MountainQueen - yes, animated GIF's are allowed as avatars. You can turn off avatars, but I'm not aware of a setting that will allow you to turn off just one type of graphics file.
