How do I upload a pic as my profile?

I want to use a picture I have on my phones photo gallery of my kids as my profile but I can't figure out how to. When I go to change avatar there is only generic smiley face type ones to choose from and I can't find where to upload one of my personal pictures. Can you walk me through how to do this. Or do I have to do it from a computer and not my phone?

Are you a member of any photo hosting sites such as photobucket? That would be the best way to upload the pic, upload to photobucket then use the link it creates for the image - [IMG]. I didn't see any upload attachment options so I'm pretty sure the only way to upload your own picture is through a photo hosting website. Hope this helps!

Thanks ld...no I'm not but I suppose when I have a few minutes I could create an account quick just for the sole purpose of having a profile pic here.

Well I made an account with photo bucket and uploaded my pics. I then copy and pasted the IMG link but it just keeps telling me my image is invalid. Maybe the size is too big. I'll have to email myself a ssmaller size pic and then upload that and see if it's the problem oothewise...??? So irritating! You would think they would just have a regular thing to upload your profile pic instead of having to do it this way. Strange and frustrating for this hormonally emotional woman right here lol

Ok so I finally figured it out...even though the photo is a little distorted and it's not the picture I really wanted. Errr. Oh well I guess it doesn't matter that much. I just want to show off my kiddos ;p...at least I got one of em here lol even though she looks a little stout lol

Lol maybe it's your phone because that lil cutie pie doesn't look stout to me, she looks perfect(: glad you figured it out! & I totally gree it would be much more convenient to have an upload file option!!
