Go to User Control Panel (top left of screen), then to Profile, then to Edit Avatar. Look for the blank box that has Browse next to it. Click Browse to find the photo on your computer that you want to upload. That will let you access your image from your computer. When you find where your photo is, double click it, and the location will be put in the box. Then just click Submit, and that should work. I believe the max avatar size is 80 pixels by 80 pixels. If your photo is larger than this, you will need to resize it down to this size.

I'm not sure Aileen, but I think s/he might be talking about an actual picture as opposed to changing hir avatar?

Chris, you must first upload the picture you want to a linkable webspace. If you don't know what that is then we stop here. If you do, then you will right-click on the image and save the url. Come back here and type:

{img}your link goes here{/img}

replacing the {} with []

If you don't know how to upload a picture or where to upload it then I can come back in a few hours.
