I found all that quite easily Jan, but the choose file 'button' didn't work when I clicked on it. I've now tried it on my iPad and it works there. I now need to put the photo I want on my iPad.

Unfortunately the photo I want is on my Macbook so I'll have to transfer it, and of course find out how to reduce the size. It's a long time since I've done these things.

What works for me, email it to yourself, open on iPad, take a screenshot, use editor to crop if needed, then upload no need to resize.

raynipper Hi Chris.
Can you upload a pic to your space? Bear in mind it has to be very small by pic standards. i.e 140 x 140 pixels. You should be able to keep a few in there.

Ray.

ChrisandJohn Thanks Ray and Terry but I'd already tried what you suggested. When I get as far as clicking 'choose file' nothing happens.

I did think about your recent troubles, Dave, and wondered if I was being too optimistic to go about changing things.

From my recent bad experience, you need a large dose of that. My entire block seems to have started when I tried to change my password... unsuccessfully as it appears to have taken half of it and then refused to do anything else... that is the only explanation that I have and that comes from Barry's success at using a new password that I gave him which I had not used on here.

Try to keep logged in throughout and follow Terry's method with crossed fingers

Go to Tools, CP user, select edit avatar, option 2, choose file (or my option on iPad is photo gallery), but from file go to the directory where your photo files are, or have your new avatar stored on your desktop and select it from there.


Good luck.
