The way to upload an avatar is: Go to your User CP. Select “Edit Avatar” from the list on the left. Down near the bottom of the page, there will be something for “Custom Avatar”. Use the applicable blank and hit “save changes”.

If you want a Who Am I picture, there is a different procedure: Go to CD-Media and select “upload” in the “photos” section. Select the image to upload and then add a tag or two, maybe a description. Hit “submit”. Once it is approved, you can go to it and click on the nametag icon. I think there may be a size/type limit, but I can’t find it.
