I am not very computer savy and I am wondering how I get an image next to my name on my posts.  I have tried choosing one from the browse option but it won't save.  What am I doing wrong??  Also do I add the picture to forum setting or public profile?  I guess I just need some step by step help really.  It is probably very simple and I am missing something obvious.

Go to My Account > Settings > Public Profile

Where you see "Change Icon" you can upload an image. Be sure that the image meets the requirements of being either a GIF, JPG, or PNG file format no bigger than 30kb file size with dimensions no bigger than 75px x 75px.

Lastly, underneath the "About Me" textarea, click the "Update Profile Settings" button.

Holly, I had a problem with the size stipulation earlier.  Most of the images I tried to upload were too big, but the system won't give you an error message if the image you selected is too big - it just won't show up.  If you have an image you like, you can save it to your computer and shrink it down using microsoft paste with the "edit" "resize" button.  Try that.
