I am trying to change my avatar but it isn't working. I went into Change My Profile...then chose a file for uploading a new avatar...save. Same old picture. I uploaded from iPhoto. Do I need to make the picture smaller?

I tried that and the softball shattered the screen. Now what do I do?

"Totally lost me Nick"

You said to clear the catch. So I threw a softball at my wife, it missed and hit the computer screen.

Sometimes it just doesn't take effect right away. I'd say wait until you log back in tomorrow and see if the pic has changed.

Donna,

The solution in Ken's link (F5) works the best for me. Your avatar appears to be a lake with mountains in the background. If there's a more recent avatar than that, then what Doug said.

yep...new avatar. I just waited awhile. Nothing moves quickly on this website. It's Lake Francis in Glacier.

That's weird, I see grass in the foreground, a row of trees in the clouds at the rear...
