. Jane's photo book can be found on www.i-am-pregnant.com/vip-photo/Jane-Doe
Some make fancy names like ..--__OOooAmyooOO__--..
This will make it hard for others to find your name!

- Click the browse button if you have a photo on your own PC you would like to use. A few notes: the photo has to be a `.jpg` and the size has to be smaller than 3MB or 3000KB.
A window pops up. We go to the folder where the photo is and check if its a `.jpg` (1) and if the size is smaller than 3MB or 3000KB. This photo is only 46,6KB (2) so this picture qualifies.
Click on the Open button. the window disappears.
The location is filled in for us (1). If you click the `Change the photo` button (2) it should look like this:
- This option lets us add a picture from the internet. The picture has to be a `.jpg` and the size has to be smaller than 3MB or 3000KB.
Let's try to find a picture of a waterfall on Google.
Look at the filetype. We can only use pictures 1, 2, 4 and 5. (jpg) Picture 3 has no filetype, picture 6 is a `gif`. We choose picture 1, because its height is bigger than its width. The other 3 would be stretched out too much to make it fit.
Click on the photo and click on `See full-size image.` Copy the url of the picture:
Now go back to your profile and click `edit my personal details`
Paste the url in the `Upload from the web:` field (1)
If you click the `Change the photo` button (2) it should look like this:
The computer picks a location where it -thinks- you live. You should see a balloon on the Google map. If you don't see it, zoom out untill you see it.
You can drag the balloon where you want it to be. You can also hide your location by checking the `Hide my location` button.
Press the 'Save' button when you're done.
