    Profile picture to what...this forum, you version of windows? If you mean this forum, go to your profile area. Click on user CP above your name at the top right and then select "edit profile picture".

    Once you upload your profile picture, are you getting any error messages. If not, are you save the changes being made?

    Also, try logging off and back on, then try to change/add your profile picture.

    Hello David,

    You added an image for your profile picture that only displays on your User CP page.

    You would have needed to add an image for your avatar to have show in your posts. I've copied it there for you.

    Again...you beat me to it....

    As Brink has so eloquently put it...the profile picture is just that a picture for your profile area. The avatar is what is used for the forum picture. If you wanted you could use a personal photo of yourself as the avatar...many do.
