I am the first to admit that I am not a computer expert so if there is any info that is wrong I am sure it will be corrected.
Click on your name in the upper right corner.
You will be taken to your page.
Click on Account settings.
When you get there you will be able to fill out all sorts of information.  There is a section where you can click on Avatar photo then choose click there and you will be taken to the section in your computer where you have photos.  Select one of them for your Avatar.  How to get other pictures I have no idea.  I am sure someone else will help with that.

Hope this helped and good luck.

I tried and I think I saw the picture on my accounts page.  Now we'll see if it shows up on posts

It did, but really cut out a lot.  I made it as small as they wanted, but they still cut it

Judy - it looks like you're a great rider.  Is that your horse?

I like the picture Judy!  These avatars are very small.  It is hard to get a lot of detail unless you have a small picture to start with.

I for one am glad to look smaller!

Judy, if anyone wants to see the "larger you" all we have to do is click on your name and we will be taken to "your page" and we can see the larger photo. What is your horse's name?  It (he/she) is beautiful. 
Glad it worked out for you.

Avatars are a tricky thing, if you aren't used to manipulating pictures.  Great job, Judy, on getting yours in.  There is a site to set up net-wide avatars (if it is supported through the particular site), but I'm assuming you don't don many forums, so wouldn't need that.  :)

Nikki, my horse is a Morgan and his name is Rocky.  He is fabulous. The picture is of us galloping on cross country between jumps. The "big" picture had some jumps showing.
