I've uploaded my photo into my profile, and it hasn't 'stuck'...

This is in response to a couple of messages about how to add an avatar to your profile, you can add a humorous picture or even your own photo if you so wish, it seems like the format we are permitted at the moment is .jpg so make sure it is in this format.

You can add avatars directly from the internet but probably the best method is create a folder on your desktop called 'avatars' then you can have a few within easy reach to change now and again, to save an avatar off the internet right click on the avatar of your choice and select 'Save Picture As...' into your 'avatars' folder.

Sign into the IET as you normally do and you will see an orange panel next to your name that says 'MyIET' click on this and another page will appear where you can do all sorts of things but for the purpose of this exercise we are only concerned about adding an avatar/picture, look for the tab that says Public profile' and click on this, you may be required to verify your user name and password again, when this page is displayed look for the tab that says 'Edit profile' and a number of panes will appear, on the left hand side is a pane called 'Photo' click on the 'Browse' button and select the folder you created on your desktop called 'avatars', select the avatar/photo you want to display and then click on the button 'Upload' and the picture should appear in that pane, if it does not check that the avatar/picture is not in a file format not supported, it needs to be a .jpg, once the picture has appeared and you are happy with it, if you are not just select 'Browse' select another picture and 'Upload' that will replace the picture each time then click on the button 'Update' under the 'Upload' button.

Go to the right hand side of the same page and you will see a panel called 'Photo', you need to check the box that says 'Display my picture on other parts of the site', then at the bottom of the same panel click on 'Update', close page and go back to the forum (update using F5) and your avatar/picture is there for all the world to see.

Hope this helps.
