I want to put on a photo for my profile. So here's how I do it...
Click on 'upload profile photo'
then I go through all the actions of uploading a picture.
So i have this picture on my gallary, but Can't figure out how to then make it my profile photo?
I've done it twice before, but can't seem to put a new one on?

what am i doing wrong? before, i remember a button with the choice of, 'make this a profile photo' but what do i do?

very confused..jen

Hi Jen, it sounds like you have uploaded it correctly. If you have uploaded others before though, then it won't necessarily always show. You can upload as many profile photos as you like (tagged with 'me') and a random one will be loaded when people visit your profile. Try refreshing your profile page a few times and see if the photo you added shows up eventually!

Hi Jen,

All you have to do is to put a "me" tag on the photo(s) you wish to make as your profile photo. I notice none of yours has a "me" tag. This explains why your profile photo was not displayed.

Go to Control Panel > Manage Your Photo Gallery.
Scroll to the photo you want and click on the Edit Information link below the photo.
On the Tags field, add a "me" (without quotes). Use a space to separate if there are more than one Tags.
Click on Update Details to save.

Voila! You have a profile photo! ;)
