To start, click on the drop down arrow next to your user name and then click on "Profile" to open up the User Profile screen.
Click on "Edit profile"
From the Edit profile menu, click on "Edit avatar"
In the Edit avatar menu, click on the drop down box and select "Upload avatar" then click "Choose File" to browse for the picture on your computer. After selecting it, click on "Submit" and you're all done!
