It shouldn't really take that long to upload .... you might have to clear your cookies or your temporary files before you log in on this site.

I have the same issues Spurman.. I can not get avatars to work. Even if under 145x145 and 10 KB

Tried having them local and out on Photosbucket. Could use some tech help on this.

All you gotta do is go into your profile page , scroll down to ( avatar ) then click on ( upload photo will replace with existing one ) then click on ( browse ) and look for your picture in whatever file you have them saved , like your documents or your pictures.
Then choose your picture , double click on that file name and it should tell you if your upload was successful , when it does click on ok and then click on ( APPLY ) at the bottom of your profile page.
If it tells you that your file is to large then you gotta resize that picture file , you can do that though your mspaint program in your accessories file.
Once your in the mspaint program click on ( file ) at the top of the tool bar then ( new ) or ( open ) and upload your picture.
When you have your picture , click on ( image ) from the tool bar then click on ( streach and skew ) then change the numbers in the little box'es from 100 to 75 , 50 or 25 this will make the picture smaller.
Don't forget to save your work when your done otherwise it will not take , then you can go back to your profile page and try again.
If you have any problems with this process then feel free to P M or E-Mail me your picture you want and I'll do it for you.
I'll send all picture file's back after I made sure they will upload into the avatar at no charge to all HNI members ( jk )

RD..I do appreciate the offer, I do.... Point being I want to be able to change at whim.. You being able to do it, for me,is not helping.

I'm not computer illiterate..something is missing..I need that clue!
