Click on your profile then Click on Avatar
Once the page opens up You have the option to upload your Avatar (picture) from your computer or a URL. To add your picture from your computer just click the browse folders button open the folder that contains the picture that you want to use. Select the picture upload it then save changes and you're done.

Only one image can be displayed at a time, its width cannot exceed 150 pixels, the height cannot exceed 200 pixels, and the file size cannot be higher than 64 KB.

Hope this helps,,,,

Good question??? Best answer I guess just to lazy to upload one.
Well really I have used my iPhone for a couple of years to do everything that I could do on my laptop. I had not taken any pictures of my van until a week or so ago & I got tired of looking at my cartoon Avatar so I replaced it with one of my old 1969 GMC Handi Van. Thanks for comment on it. The paint on it is factory color & it came with a 307 automatic from the factory. I have only seen a few of them with the gold paint & sometimes wonder how many of the 69's were produced with the gold paint. It needs a new paint job but I probaly will never be able to afford to paint it.

Avatar is upside down

Post by flyintiger on Wed Nov 02, 2016 9:31 am

When I view the website on my computer, my avatar shows upside down. But when I look at it on my phone, it's right side up. Any ideas?

I've seen this happen when people use their phone pics...try saving the pic to your PC and then open it with Microsoft Paint. It usually opens up right-side-up when you do this. Now, just hit the "Save" icon or go to File, then choose save. Now you just go to your Avatar in Profile and import the newly saved version. That will put it back right-side-up. At least it works for me. I'll use your avatar temporarily for mine to test my theory.

New to this site and trying to add a profile picture. Left clicking on the avatar seems to do nothing. Right clicking gives me the following options:

Open image in new tab.
Save image as.....
Copy image.
Copy image address.
Search Google for image.
Inspect

I can drag and drop the image under the inspect option but it doesn't seem to offer a way to save it replacing the standard avatar. I'm probably way off track but would love to get this accomplished.
Thanks.
