I'm not well skilled with computer maneuverings, but I would first edit a photo so that it has the pixel dimensions required (see avatar requirments); upload a photo that you select to a site like Photobucket; and then use what will be listed as the IMG Code for the Photobucket photo to click and drag it to where you want to post it. .......or, I believe for the avatar you can simply select the "browse" feature from the "create you avatar" window to select a photo directly from your computer. This might be useless crap because I know that terms like click, drag, post and browse can be hurdles for those that have not adapted to the language,- I'm barely hanging in myself!
Take care and joy, Aythya crew
