load picture for avatar

I am trying to load a new picture to use as my avatar.

I have a Macbook Air.

I've gone to "edit avatar" on my userCP and have tried to load my image both as a URL from another website (flickr) and as a file from my computer, but can't get either to work.

From Flickr
HTML Code:
[url=https://flic.kr/p/LQN5Sv][img]https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1899/29431881137_ce99ea7959_q.jpg[/img][/url]



From filename displayed in my Finder (which just displays as a jpg name, no pathway??)
HTML Code:
edit avatar copy.jpg
I can't seem to get either to load here on the edit Avatar page.

The flickr photo will show up on a regular post (as above), but when I try to set up an Avatar, I either get "unable to save file" or "invalid file name".

All I've managed to do is erase my previous avatar so now I have none.

I imagine it is my total computer incompetency + a Mac, but do you have any suggestions how I can get this picture for my avatar??

I had the Dickens of a time getting my avatar, as well as my signature pictures. For starters, it needs to be a small file, so the resolution needs to be changed, in most cases. I think what I did was either change the resolution with the editing software I use, or else I downloaded the smallest size possible from Flickr, saved it to my computer, and then uploaded it to here.

I have no idea what I'm doing.

No, I have a geriatric PC. I always have trouble changing my avatar, and never remember how I did it the last time. :/

There is a bug with the Avatar upload process. I've got it reported to the techs and I hope to have a fix soon
