I'm having difficulty changing avatar photo.

I've changed photos of my Father several times in the last few weeks.

However I am unable to repeat process with photo of my Mother.

This forum was for suggested improvements to the site. It is not read by many people, as you will see from the View Count.

Ask the question on General Chat as many people there change their avatars frequently, and give more details about what exactly you are doing. Is your mother's photo in JPG format?
