Default Profile picture problem

Can't get a pic to load into my profile.
It's a Clint Eastwood image, supposedly, within the constraints of the 300x300 pixels allowed...any tips or hints to get Clint loaded?

I get the message "upload of file failed"

here it is: From his movie "Gran Torino"

It looks like Larry Frey after an especially bad day at the traps.

Ron: I'll give this a stab. I tried to edit my profile pic with Clint. Got a message "invalid file" Did a right click on the image and clicked on properties. There was a note that the image was from another computer and had been blocked. So, I saved the image on my computer and then went to edit my profile pic and chose to take the file from my computer rather than an http: address. Well, my profile pic became Clint. Closed everything down and then checked if my profile pic was still Clint. It was.
So, I then changed my profile pic back to what is was pre-Clint.

So, try this. Right click on your image. Choose Save As. Give it a name and save it somewhere simple like the desktop. Then go to edit profile pic and choose the Desktop file. Click Save and maybe Clint will grace your profile. Go ahead, make your day.

Can't seem to make it happen "any which way I can!" (a little Clint pun)

It's sitting there on my desktop and I can choose it...when I save changes it says upload failed...rats

In 1972 I was a Product Planning analyst for the Ford Gran Torino. You've made my day!

Glad to hear it!
My first new car was a '69 Torino Fastback (metallic blue with white racing stripes...)
