I have been trying to change my profile photo but keep failing. Is this even possible and if it is, how can I do it?

It seems that I am completely helpless with computer

Yes, it is of course possible to change your profile photo.

1. Click on the little head-and-shoulders top right of this page.

2. Click on 'Your Profile'.

3. Click on the 'Edit profile photo' tab.

4. Click 'Select files' and choose your photo.

5. Click 'Start upload'.

6. Remember to click 'Save changes' after the photo has uploaded!

7. Refresh your profile page to see the new photo.

I've just done it so I know it works. :-)

(PS And I'm now going to change it back!)

What's less obvious is that you can have multiple profile photos, and it'll show a random one from your selection. A profile photo is any uploaded photo tagged as "me". (The "upload profile photo" form just pre-sets the "me" tag on the uploaded photo.) So if you ever want a photo to no longer be a profile photo, just edit it to remove that tag.

I was just going to ask about that, becouse my previous profile photo showed up again! Now i removed the "me" tag so there should be showing onky one profile photo..hopefully! Thanks!

Sander beat me to it! When I first joined TP I couldn't work out why my profile photo kept changing, then I realised that every photo I'd tagged as 'me' was coming up in random rotation! Some of them are awful and I keep meaning to go in and edit the worst of them to remove the tag but then I forget again. This is a helpful reminder to get around to it soon

I thought that the changes didn't work becouse so far I only have two photos and it just kept showing the "old" photo when I uploaded the site
You have really nices pictures Sarah, I loved the ones with the penguins!
