Charlie, my method probably isn't the right way, but here's how I did it: I went to the start menu on my desktop, got pictures, pulled up the one I use for my screen saver, then snapped the pic with my phone with the flash off. The first couple I took had the flash on, and those didn't work, as I got a great big flash in the middle of the pics.

If you are using Win 7, right click your desktop, click Personalize, you desktop image should show in the lower left of the screen that opens. Click Desktop image, right click the image, select open with, choose the photo program you want to use. Resize the image, save it to your desktop, then upload to DC in the user CP.

Or you could just attach it instead of uploading it.

I usually have mine rotate through my pictures, but since I got my new computer a few months ago I haven't set that up yet. Right now I have this:

I wish I knew! I got this from the Internet. I'm not a big fan of some outdoor art (huge metal monstrosities that just look like a giant wreck of some kind), but I think this is great!
