Hello


BODY,.aolmailheader {font-size:10pt; color:black; font-family:Arial;} a.aolmailheader:link {color:blue; text-decoration:underline; font-weight:normal;} a.aolmailheader:visited {color:magenta; text-decoration:underline; font-weight:normal;} a.aolmailheader:active {color:blue; text-decoration:underline; font-weight:normal;} a.aolmailheader:hover {color:blue; text-decoration:underline; font-weight:normal;} Yahoo messenger photo ?
If its a new photo have it ready to pick up on your desktop, unless its easy to find in your system

Open messenger window.
Left click on your avatar picture
Select "display image"
Select "share my picture"
Select "select"
Select a random picture from the gallery - by clicking on it - ( to make sure it changes & your Flashplayer is ok )
Select the picture you want to display, if its not one in the gallery, click "browse" and find the photo you want - double click on it, make sure its in the display panel. Note sometimes the image will be blacked-out. This will either be a flashplayer problem or the file you selected the photo from has numbers or / ., etc - you can try renaming the file.
Click "OK" in top photo panel
Make sure "share my picture" is still selected
Click "OK"

When you open the chat window the display images may be hidden - look for the little "head and shoulder" icon with an arrow pointing to it on the right hand upper side of the window - click on this to show pictures.

Yahoo 9 wont let me display a picture or change nickname


just stay calm ...this was ( you probably already know ) a temporary issue from the yahoo tech crew...and it was from the changes that they made last month or so on the server ...if your problem its still actual ...just contact yahoo suport ..and let them know .....some I heard remain with this kinda problems after they messed up that server ...
anyway ..a solution is to make another account and import all your contacts...and thats all...sometimes they do not fix problems like this ....

Go to folder
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles\[your Yahoo ID]\My Icons

It's a list of display images saved by YM. Remember the filename of your desired image.

Open your registry (click Start, Run.., type REGEDIT).

Trace the path
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Yahoo/pager/profiles/[your Yahoo ID]/FriendIcons

The value of Path should reflect the filename of the current display image in your YM. Change it to reflect the filename of your desired image.

Close the registry.

Restart YM.
