        I have tried several things and am unable to upload a profile picture. Any clues? I’m on a mac.

        Thank you!

          Hi Lynn

          your profile picture has to be uploaded to http://en.gravatar.com/.

          First, you’ll need to create an account at http://en.gravatar.com/.

          Once at the Gravatar website, click the “Sign In” button and create an account.

          When creating an account, make sure to use the same email address that you use on the Online Guild forums.

          Once you’ve uploaded your photo to Gravatar then it will auto-magically appear on the Online Guild forums.

          Let me know if you have any problems.

          Cheers
          Alastair

            I am having trouble uploading a profile picture as well.  I have a gravatar account with my picture but it doesn’t seem to show up here.  Suggestions?  ETA:  Got it.  Sorry.

              Alistair, I am having problems figuring out how to upload photos on the forum. I have uploaded the photos onto Gravatar but they don’t appear on the forum. Do I have to click on something in the forum? Thanks.

                  Hi Beth, when you’re posting on the forum and you are writing your comment, just above the writting box, there’s tabs with options in the greyish are.  The last one on the right is the one for uploading pictures, click on it and then choose your photo and it’ll post with your comment.

                  The Gravatar is only for your profile photo so that won’t if you want to share a photo in the forum.

                              Got it!

                              Sorry for the ginormous photo posted incorrectly. I’ll be happy to delete it if someone could tell me how. I tried to figure it out a few times, now I don’t even have the option to edit it.

                                  Hi Kathy, just above your posted comment with the picture, do you see any edit option?  And no worries about the pic, it’s ok here.  Lovely picture btw as your profile 🙂

                            Thank you Ginette. I realized that it wouldn’t accept my photo as they were over 5 mb. Problem solved.  You guys are great!

                                                test to see if this works!  If it did it should show me in a purple handwoven coat I made.
