Gee, I hope I don't ...explode!  blinders

It's a little confusing that we have both a Profile page picture and an avatar picture...and they can either be the same or different.  On the other hand, it adds variety.   :)

 Dan, could be you changed the image on your Profile page, but not your actual user avatar.

Go to your profile page Settings and check the avatar image that shows when you go to your "Account" TAB in your settings.  Then once that's changed too, SAVE your settings and also clear your browser cache to see the new results.

I changed my profile image. It is current on some pages but has the "old" image on others? What am I missing guys?

Hi Strumelia, you have created a great new site. I love it. Glad you got rid of the "typewriter" photos for new members. Wish everyone would post something original, rather than the standard stock dulcimer photo you are using for most members. I sent my photo to some online guy and got him to draw a caracature of me holding my dulcimer and it came out fairly well. My kids say it is ugly, but at least it is original, LOL!!!!  Thanks again for a great site.

Hi George, you posted this question in two places.  Our moderator Dusty answered it here:  http://fotmd.com/forums/forum/ask-our-site-moderators/14126/ask-the-moderators#r15147

Dusty said:

 George, once you are logged in, hold your cursor over your name in the toolbar (but don't click), and you will see a drop-down menu.  Click on "Account Settings."  Once there, you will see the generic picture with an option underneath it to "upload new image."  Choose that and then you can upload a picture from your computer.  When you are done, don't forget to "Save Changes" on the bottom of the screen.

Let us know if you still can't do it.  hi

I was able to add my personal photo to profile, but when I post anything in forums, it just comes up with the stock dulcimer photo, how do I change that to a personal photo, Thanks from a very computer challenged individual!
