Can anyone tell me how to make an uploaded photo a profile photo? I have tried several times but when i click on set profile all i get is a black screen whith a white line accross the centre and an X at the end of it.

Any help will be greatfully received.

Have a read through the Keepsafe FAQ

Also the first 2 listed Blogs, both by Phil Moir

If you're still struggling after following the guides, come back to this thread so someone can try to talk you through your particular problem
