You do so from the user control panel: ucp.php?i=profile&mode=avatar. Note that you can not upload from your computer, but must provide a link to an image on another website. For example, upload your image to and then copy the download link it gives you and enter that on the user control panel. Note the maximum dimensions of the image, and the file size restriction!
