    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Are you ladies having any trouble adjusting the picture for your profile? I haven't had any luck with adjusting my pic to show all of my son's face. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

    Hi KoivuMama,

    If you are having trouble with cropping your picture exactly where you want:
    1. Move your mouse so that the cursor is over the lit crop box on the picture. The cursor should look like a cross with arrows.
    2. Holding your right mouse button down, move the box to the desired area of the uploaded photo for your profile picture.
    If you want to change the size of the profile picture:
    1. Move your cursor to any side or corner of the crop box. The cursor should appear as a line with arrows at either end.
    2. Holding down the right mouse button, drag the box to stretch the picture larger or smaller than the original photo.
    If you are having technical problems with the site please let me know. I hope that this helps! :)
    Best Wishes! Amelia

    I have been having problems with it. I upload the picture but the box wont move around to crop the right spot on the picture. The cropping box is stuck in the upper left hand corner and can't be moved. It's very frustrating...

    Hi Daniczec,

    I'm sorry this is acting up for you. I just tested it in my account and everything was fine. The crop box is there for you, but just won't move? Are you holding down your right or left mouse button and attempting to drag it? Hope I can help. :)
    Best Wishes! Amelia

    Yippee...glad to see it is not only my computer!!! I have had the same problem! No matter what I do, the crop box just doesn't move. I got frustrated and just gave up on a profile pic.

    I've had the same problem, which is why my profile pic is what it is...still just the left hand corner of the picture.
    momtobegrunden responded:
    It's probably your browser. Are all of you using Internet Explorer? I couldn't edit my picture in IE either; the edit box just stayed in the upper left corner and wouldn't move or expand at all. I just downloaded Firefox and could finally edit my picture through that browser. I remember having problems with WebMD profile pictures and IE in the past, too.

    Firefox is free to download.

    It probably is, I just used google chrome instead and it worked right away.
    emilyedoyle responded:
    I've had the same issue with my profile pic! Soooo frustrating that this thing won't work!
    emilyedoyle responded:
    Well I just figured out a way around this profile thing... I used my image editing program to shrink down my image to about the size of the cropping box on the profile pic editor, and then uploaded it... still not perfect but it works.
