Uploading a picture

You can upload a picture from your computer to represent you. The best images to use are a close-up of your face, but you can use any image you like.

You can get a picture file using a number of methods:

  1. Using a digital camera, your photos will most likely already be on your computer in the right format.
  2. Using a scanner to scan a printed photograph to an image file.
  3. Using artistic software, you might draw a picture.

Whichever method you choose make sure to save the image file you want to use is in JPG or PNG format.

To upload the image, click the "Browse" button, and select the image from your hard disk.

Note: Make sure that the file is not larger than the maximum size listed, or it will not be uploaded.

Then click "Update my Profile" at the bottom. The image file will be cropped to a square and resized down to 100x100 pixels.

If the image might not appear to have changed in your profile page, refresh page in your browser.
