How do i add a picture / photo / image to my profile

I do not see an explanation on how to add a picture to my profile. It says it can only be done on the default profile, but does not say how to do it.

Get to the Customize Profile Box page

  1. Click the edit link in the upper right corner of your profile box.
    Or, click Edit My Account, then the Customize Profile Box tab.
  2. In the Profile Image line, click the text that says "Do not change current image."
  3. Select "Use a file from my computer". This will allow you to upload a new image.
    Screenshot - Customize Profile
  4. Click "Browse" to locate your profile image on your computer
    • .jpg, .gif, & .png are all ok!
    • Max width: 130px
    • Max height: 200px
  5. Click Save Profile; your new profile pic should now display

Note: Your profile box can only display one profile picture throughout the site. You cannot set different profiles for different pages/guides. Sorry!
