The very short answer: you'll need to upload a suitable image at an image hosting site and enter the (HTTPS) URL for the image in your profile.
The longer answer can be found in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=90&t=267831

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

1st thing you have to do, is scale the image to 120 x 120,

or have the largest dimension be 120 pixels.

GIMP is fast at that.

The avatar is of my 8 week old minature Jack Russell pup called Ferne.
She's already become a little terror around the house lol

Hi wallyUSA

I'm sorry for being so slow to reply to your last post.

After i lost my Springer (joe) never thought i'd would have had another dog.
Yet after sometime the wife mentioned having a Jack Russell pup.
She's a real handful running here and there all the time and if you look
at the photo closely you will notice that she has two different coloured eyes.
