    If you do have the "change photo and avatar" choice, it's not immediately obvious where to place the pic.

     

    First re-size the pic as a thumbnail with a suitable photo editor.

     

    Go to the list of stock avatars on the right and scroll down to the bottom. There are (usually) three placeholders for user pics.

    Upload the tumbnail to there and choose it as your avatar.

    This is what I see at the bottom of the Avatar list.

     

    Double clicking on the last one has no effect:

    It usually take a day or two to "move the furniture" - your post has been brought to the hosts' attention...

    I really can't take the credit - OGELTHORPE reported it and I just saw that and thought it'd be nice if you were aware of it....

    MichaelLax, greetings:  I just stumbled upon the right place, pleaded your case to the right person and you have received your just reward.  Good luck!

     

    Ciao

    You have given me some unwarranted points because I do not feel that I solved your problem.  If it is a reward for assisting with MichaelLax's issue, I was only at best a catalyst.  Others did the important work.  (Or perhaps it was just an error.  In any event, what is done is done.)

     

    With that said, thank you for your kind thoughts and let me wish you the best.

     

    Ciao.

    Although hard to see in the Avatar (an enlarged version is my Profile Photo), it is taken from my business card.  It is my Service Mark registered with the State of California.

     

    One of these days I am going to print it on some mugs, sell them over state lines and apply for a Federal Mark - ® !

     

    I find that generally speaking, most people under 30 do NOT get the joke (look closely inside the Digital Media Player's video screen)!

    No surprise there; they never saw the original on shellac discs!

    MichaelLax, greetings:  Not to brag, but I recognized the humor without looking at the screen.  I am over 30.

     

    Ciao.
