Trying to change my profile picture but can't. When you go into
Edit Avatar the browse option isn't there, just the upload from and the tiny empty box. Is this from the changes or is it just a blip?

Doesn't your screen come up like this? Just browse to a file on your computer that fits the size spec and add it.

Hi Geoff

No - there was no browse on it. Beside the upload from box is just a little
tiny blank box no writing at all, I did click on it but it just got tiny lines running up and down - so narrow is this box there was only 1 lot of lines.

I will sign out and go back in later as maybe will sort itself out.

Westi, what operating system does your pc run and which internet browser?

My Android phone and my Android tablet pc won't let me upload any pictures at all. So to post pictures I still have to fire up the Windows Vista IE8 laptop.
A bit of a pain when my go everywhere camera is built into the Android phone.

I have google chrome via MSN. I'll have to try from someone
elses computer then, downloading direct from my iphone or could I download a pic direct from my phone if I am in a Wi Fi hotspot and go online from there?

If you get completely stuck, post the pic you'd like to use as your avatar (or email it to me, kgadmin@kitchengarden.co.uk) and I can pop it on your account for you.
