Go to your profile and it's somewhere in there lol its been a while since I've changed mine but I do know it's pretty easy as long is the photo isnt too big, one of the mods would probably be able to give you some more specific info

It took me a couple screen to find the Control Panel, but eventually I did. Unfortunately my photo was waay too big. So I'll have to figure out how to shrink it. Thanks.

I use Gimp for photo editing, it's Open Source and free, it will do just about anything Photoshop will do.

I'm still having a problem getting my photo/avatar posted. The smallest I can get my photo down to is 344kb. I doubt it will accept a zip/compressed photo. Any suggestions on how to shrink a photo to the size requirements?

Try it again now, it'll accept the bigger file, and I'll resize it.

This is the error message that I'm getting. The submitted avatar is 1192 pixels wide and 928 pixels high. Avatars must be at least 20 pixels wide and 20 pixels high, but no larger than 150 pixels wide and 150 pixels high.

ah, yes, that is a problem. Reply and attach the picture by choosing "UPload attachment" at the bottom of the reply window ("Go Advanced" if you're using quick reply) and I'll get it cut down for you :)
