    Profile photo

    I have a profile photo but I doesn't seem to be working. It is 150x150 and 34 kb. I read somewhere that 150x150 was the appropriate size but I am guessing maybe the 34 kb may still be too big. Does anyone know? I have worked to get it as small as I could several times and am frustrated that I can't seem to make it work.

    To add an avatar photo click on settings (it is in between My Profile and Log out on the upper right side of screen.)and then on left side of page, choose edit avatar. That is where you will upload an avatar photo to show up in the gallery and in the forum when you post a comment.

    Your profile photo is showing up just fine, Shannon. The avatar and profile photo are two different things. You can use the same photo for both. Your size should be fine for the avatar.

    Hope that helps. I was confused by this difference, too.
