Default Trying to change profile picture

I want to change my profile picture but it's not working - I've done it in the past without any problems so am not sure what I am doing wrong. Has anyone else had happen?

Working for me. Stupid question, did you make sure to click Save Changes at the bottom of the page?

Knowing me that's not a stupid question! I went back and tried again, making sure to save it and it says it worked, the picture shown is the new picture I've chosen. But so far on the board itself my old profile picture is the one showing up. Oh well at least it isn't something embarrassing!

In your profile, I see a snow-laden branch with a single red ornament on it.

If you are trying to update your avatar (the two flowers in a pot) next to your name, the maximum size for the avatar is 48 x 48 pixels. Your the branch/ornament image looks to be 100 x 76, which is way too large.

I think that must be the problem then - I didn't realize it was showing up anywhere - again glad I wasn't experimenting with something potentially embarrassing! I'll try again with a smaller icon. Thanks!!
