How do I get profile picture under my name?

I was able to get my picture in my profile, but I noticed that some members have their picture under their name in their posts - I really like that - but I can't figure out how to do it - can someone help me? Thanks.

Hi Michele, those pictures are called avatars. Go to UserCP, then look on the control panel on the left, click on Edit Avatar under "Settings & Options".
There you can upload the image of your choice directly in. However the picture should be the right size (quite small), make sure it is no larger than 80x80 pixels!!

We seem to be having problems with the avatar feature right now. The owner of the site is aware and I think he is trying to find someone who can fix this problem.

Take a look on "Edit avatar" again, maybe "Do not use avatar" is still checked?

I learn something here every day. I didn't even know there were pictures on the user profile page. I could have been seeing what some of you look like and didn't even know that.
