    Okay, I'm a little technologically behind. Different people have different picture icons. I don't like any of the ones offered by SDN. So I found a picture I liked and downloaded it onto my computer under "my pictures". Then I cut and pasted the URL onto the section in the SDN "My profile" where you can customize your picture and it works. Then I update my profile. But when I come back, my picture is gone. How do I fix this problem?

    Thanks all

    Make sure the picture is not right-protected.

    jpg's can be right-protected. I tried using these pics from this site... didn't work because they were right-protected. Try linking directly from the website. I.e., right click on your pick, go to properties, and then copy the URL (CTL-C) and paste it (CTL-V) onto the URL location. It should work.

    There is a discussion about this in the Lounge.
