Why can't i changed my picture in display image in my yahoo messenger,


Hello,

· Change your Yahoo! Messenger display image. From the messenger menu, choose "My Display Image." Click on the "Select" button from the window which comes up to choose one of the images which come with Yahoo! messenger.
· Use your own image. To use your own image, click on the "Browse" button and navigate to the image on your hard drive. Click the "Open" button and the image becomes your new default image.
· Try an avatar image instead. An avatar is a cartoon picture which represents you. You can make the avatar look like you or completely different if you prefer.
· Design your avatar. From the Messenger menu, choose "Preferences" and then choose "Display Image" from the menu at the left. Click the "Change Default" button and then click the "Share My Avatar" option. Then click on "Create Your Own Avatar" to get started designing your avatar.
· Change image settings for other users. From the Messenger menu, choose "Preferences." Then, choose "Display Image" from the menu at the left. From the option on the right, choose whether you want to see your contact's display images and the images of other users who are not on your contact list.
· Upload an image to your Yahoo! Messenger online public profile. From the Messenger menu, choose "My Profiles" and then click on "Edit." Click on "Edit Picture" and then the "Browse" button to navigate to an image on your hard drive to upload.

Have a great day,

Many factors can affect the image quality of your pictures. If you are experiencing blurry images, please try adjusting the focus ring located around the lens. This will allow you to focus the camera image on objects at different distances. Also, make sure there is good lighting. Improving the lighting conditions can improve the image quality considerably.
Connection Issues:
If the image quality is poor while transmitting video over the Internet using video enabled programs such as MSN Messenger, Yahoo! or AOL Instant Messenger, your connection speed to the Internet directly affects the image quality of the transmitted video. Corporate LAN, DSL/cable modem connections will result in the best image quality experience, while dial-up connections may result in choppy and overall poor quality because of the slower connection speed. Even broadband connections such as DSL/cable modem may experience choppy video at times because of Internet traffic or slow upload speeds. If the image appears clearly in the camera software, most likely your Internet connection may be responsible for the poor image quality in your video program.
Changing Display Adapter Settings:
If you are still experiencing a distorted, fuzzy or grainy image, you may need to change the settings for your display adapter. For optimal image quality, please make sure the video display adapter is set to display at least 16-bit high color or higher. To change the color palette please perform the following steps:
  1. Click on "Start," "Settings," and "Control Panel."
  2. Double-click on the Display icon.
  3. Click on the tab labeled Settings.
  4. In the dialog box labeled Color Palette, verify the video mode is set to 16-bit (high color) or 24-bit (true color).
  5. Also, check with the manufacturer of the video card for updated video drivers.
Low Light Boost:
If you cannot do anything to improve the lighting situation, some Logitech video cameras have an option for "Low Light Boost." If there is an option for "Low Light Boost," try enabling the "Low Light Boost" in the QuickCam software. To do this:
  1. Open the QuickCam software.
  2. At the bottom right hand corner of the camera image box, click on the arrow next to the QuickCam icon.
  3. Choose "Advanced Camera Settings".
  4. Under the Image Enhancement box, place a check mark in the "Low Light Boost" option.
  5. If that does not improve the image quality, try adjusting the other image settings, such as contrast, saturation brightness, gain and white balance.
  6. Click OK when your are done.
