First you get a pic, then you attach it to a message, then you post the message.

Then right click it, select properties, and copy the address.

Then go into your profile, and paste the address into the avatar address section.

just make sure your pic can be attached (not too big and the right format, etc)

or you can just host your pic on your own website  ;)

First of all, that avatar's too huge.  You should resize it to 50% or less and re-attach. :)

 :o Still way too big.  Crop/cut the pic from that black part and resize the image to 85%.  Then it should be ok.  :)  

Actually, if you give me a few minutes I can do this for ya.  :P

EDIT: Here ya go:

It's a little awkward.

First, click on the picture where you want the upper-left corner of the part you want to keep to be and hold the mouse button down.

Next, drag the mouse right and down until you have the white rectangle surrounding the part of the picture you want to keep. Let go of the mouse button.

Finally, go to Edit>Crop Selection

Peace & Luv, Liz
