To change your display image on yahoo messenger follow these steps:
Login to your messenger,
At the top left corner is an icon which looks like a face directly under the messenger tab of the messenger,
Click on the face icon,
An extension comes out with manage display image,
click on display image and decide if you want to share an image or not as well as change whatever display image shows there.
Hope this is helpful

Testimonial: "Apparently if you ever use an image here, even if you delete it it could still be floating out there somewhere. The only solution seems to block all images from a site that shows something you don't want anyone to see."

You may have a Flashplayer problem for your Internet Explorer if you are not seeing images - Use the link on this page to check
You may not use IE as your browser but it is interlinked with Messenger
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messenger/messenger10/notices/mstabuguqscripterror.html

Change your photo in Messenger
Check your multimedia settings in IE 8
> Tools > Internet options > Advanced > Multimedia - check all boxes except Show image download placeholder > OK
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 - 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 an INTERNET EXPLORER Flashplayer problem (even if you have another browser set as default) or the file you selected the photo from has numbers or / ., etc in the file name - 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 side of the window - click on this to show pictures.
