    You need to have at least posts and the avatar option is in your user control panel. Edit Options. At the bottom you will see the section on your avatar.

    The picture can be no larger than 100 pixels x 100 pixels and 14kb.

    No trick.

    Post the picture here so I can maybe see what the problem is.

    I am trying to replace my current avatar with this one. The board won't let me for some reason.

    Edited: Got it!!!!!

    When I asked a similar question, someone posted a link to or a name of something that led me to this page:

    http://www.irfanview.com/


    I downloaded the freeware, and no meteor struck my house. I figured out how to get a picture from my camera to this page (Isn't she lovely?) without too much trouble. Enjoy.
