need help loading a new profile avatar

Sorry, there's probably already a thread for this, but I don't have the patience to go through 6 pages of old stuff looking. I want to use a new image for my forum profile, but I don't know how to get the photo I want out of my attachment file and into my ID. I see what I have to do, but the system requires a jpeg with a web address, so....  is there some way I can do this? I see that it won't allow me to copy and paste.  If not, that's okay, but I thought I'd ask.  TIA for any advice!

I think the trick is that you have to upload the pic of your choice to a site like photobucket. There you will get several choices of sharing it, and there will be a URL as well.
