Not knowing what kind of computer you have (PC or MAC). I will take a stab in the dark and I am going to assume you have a PC.

Ok to resize the picture you want to put on this profile:

1. Go to the "start" button and choose "all programs"
2. Find "Accessories"
3 Under accessories find the one called "Paint" and click on it
4 When you are on the paint page, choose "file" and then scroll down to "open"

5. choose the file that will have the picture you want on this file by choosing "browse".

When you see the picture in paint use the menu at the top and pick "Image"
In that menu there is one called "stretch and skew".

This will allow you to change the size of your picture. When you have a size you want save this pic with a new name.

6. On this site, on your profile page choose "update my picture" and then click on the button called "browse" when you find the larger picture you want, click on it.

If it is big enough you will have the opportunity to crop the pic to fit the site's requirements for pictures. I have many pictures on my profile if you want to take a look.

If the picture is still too small, then you will have to repeat this process using higher numbers to resize your picture (150% X 150%) for example. Don't worry about it being too big.

I hope this helps. :) If you have any other questions, I will be glad to help.
