You will need the picture on your hard drive and just make sure that it's 5mb or less.  Then you upload it in your Settings tab.

From help:  (Which really did not help me.)

How do I add an avatar/blinkies to my forum posts?

To add an avatar to your public profile (which will appear on your forum posts also):

  • Go to your Account Settings
    • choose Settings from the dropdown menu under My Account in the toolbar at the top of the site.
    • Scroll down to the Public Profile section (or click the link at the top of the page to go there directly)
  • Click " to the right of the "Change Icon" space. This will let you browse your hard drive to find the picture you want to upload.
    • Make sure your picture is a valid file type (gif, jpg, png), and is smaller than the maximum filesize (30kb), and smaller than the maximum allowable dimensions (75px x 75px).

 This will also work in the Forum Settings to add graphics to your forum sig.


The best directions I have found are on Mannythepoolshark's notebook.  Go to the bottom entry.

(That is a link to the PBS page.)
