Update: All good, managed to sort it.

Can’t seem to add a profile photo.
Suggestions appreciated��
Selected a photo, and failed to upload.
It may have something to do with size of pic?
Any suggestions to how I can rectify this.
Thanks again��

These are the "rules" for Avatar photos:

The maximum size of your custom image is 640 by 480 pixels or 357.0 KB (whichever is smaller).

I've just checked the file size of my photo and it is just 5KB!

I am sure there was some software that could reduce an original photo to meet the requirements.

Unfortunately, I've been using this photo on different forums for so long I can't remember how I did it.

Good luck, Paul.
