when you log in there is a bit in the top right of the screen.......the one nearest the centre of the screen says profile
click this.......this takes you to you control panel.....
here you should see an options tab......click this and the go to edit avatar.....
on the right should be a box which says upload......go to this and find your photo on your pc..(the pic can only be 150x150pix max...so edit it in photoshop or something similar)
there you go.......doddle

Whippit - resize is a function on the 'image' tab in many picture editing software programs.....

......if you have any problems, feel free to send me whatever you wish to use by e-mail and I'll happily resize it for you.

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

go on - click this link - you know you want to!

sending a picture by email is pushing the boundrys of my expertise,
i'm having trouble with zipped files for elanscan, so down loaded file unzipp program didnt work, trying to figure it out, going round and round in circles,
i only use the laptop for looking for parts for the lotus and this forum,
i thought resizing would be a basic program on adobe but i still failed to find it,
i ususlly good with prob solving but a guess computers are not my forte,
thanks for the offer, so if you find i weird pic soon you'll know were it came from,
