    Hover or click on your screen name and from the choices, choose Avatar. If you do this from a mobile device, you can easily choose a photo from your photo area of your device.

    You must have 10 posts to do this.

    Ok, it must be that I don't have enough posts. I am sure I will soon, lol. Have been a annual pass holder for over 20 years, but just found this site. Has been a lot of help and I am sure I will use it a lot more. We have booked our first Disney cruise for this summer, and I need lots of advice and tips.

    Need help too. When I browse the pictures on my computer, it says they are too large to process. I resized one down but
    I still get the error message.

    OK, I'm ok now. Just went to my desktop computer, copied my pic to my harddrive under my pictures, then it worked with the small size.

    Going to try this, because I think this might make 10 or 11 posts for me

    AFAIK, the picture needs to by on your computer to download it directly. Beyond that, I have no clue about tech-y stuff.

    I know a lot of people recommend using photobucket. It gives you a link to the URL and you should just be able to paste it in place!

    I can't find the avatar option. When I hover over my screen name, nothing happens. When I click on it, it just takes me to my profile page. i can't seem to find edit profile anywhere either

    Are you hovering over your username on the upper right side of the page? Or just the one to the right of your post?

    Another thought - how recently did you get your 10 posts? It can take a little while (something like 30-60 minutes) for all your new options to be available once you've reached that milepost.

    And as if by magic...they appear. Definitely true to your word, it took a little while as I had only gotten to 10 posts today.

    Thanks for your help!
