Hi Arlene--

Go to My Account > Settings and look under "Public Profile".  There's an option there to "Change Icon" and browse for a file -- that's where you find a pic on your computer that you want to use and upload it.  Then it will show up next to your name.  I use my cat, Sam, for mine.

Cheers,

Catt

Be sure to check KB size and dimension size in the settings.

Also be sure you have the right file type. If they arent up to the dimensions and file type they just wont go on there.
