    Don't know if I'm posting in the right place or not. I can't figure out how to install an avatar. Any help would be appreciated.

    What help do you need?
    Go to your control panel at the top of the page.
    There is a setting there for "edit avatar" on your left.

    You need to make an avatar 110 x 110 pixels or smaller to upload.
    If you don't know how to do that, send me the pic and I will resize it for you and email back.

    If you get confused, email me a version of the photo - ideally a smaller file size of it if you know how to make one.

    Hi Craig. I sent you an email of the picture. I reduced it to 105x110 but it is still about 75 kb. It's over the 50kb limit. It seems that I would really have to make it tiny to get it down to 50 kb. I am really appreciating your help with this.

    I don't understand why my picture is 105 x 110 pixels around the same size as everyone elses avatars but mine is 75 kb and everyone elses is only 8 or 9 kb.
