Hello there! I have a question. I just joined the forum today (I am loving it) and I would like to use a profile picture. Nevertheless, I still don't find the way to do it. I am sorry, I am not really good with computers and stuff. Could someone help me?

Go to Profile in the drop down menu under your name (in the top right-hand corner of the forum). Next, click on the link which says Edit Profile. Finally, a thing for editing an avatar will be on the left side menu.

That's all that is needed. However, one problem that might come up is the photo size. I'm not sure how many MBs are allowed.

Here is a quick guide on adding an avatar to your profile.

1. Navigate to "user control panel"

If you choose to upload your own avatar remember that the max image dimension is 128px by 128px

I also was trying to have my usual avatar on different sites at Postloop. However, it won't fit, when at other sites it fit.
I was trying to make it smaller and upload it but to no avail. Rather than getting those from the library, I didn't pursue attaching my avatar.

The size isn't everything. You also have to look at the correct dimensions. However, though, it might be possible for the owner to change the dimensions and required file size.
