Do you have some sort of graphics program which can resize it to 50x50 pixels?

A lot of people have trouble changing avatars - my advice: don't change it.

Get a picture- 50 by 50 max. -If you can't do it yourself Ollie will probably help you when he comes on.


Then go into your 'user cp' (top right) and then into 'Avatar' which is on the menu bar/control panel. Scroll down the page to where it says 'Custom Avatars' (under the pre-defined ones displayed) and 'You can upload an avatar from your computer'. Click the 'browse' button, select the file you want for your picture and 'submit modifications'.

Done.

Oops- I didn't realise I'd had the window open so long. Seems my reply was somewhat slow.
