I have had zero luck changing mine. I got to the options button on the photo in my gallery and selected (set as photo) but nothing happens.

The reason we have so many empty faces is this function does not work well. Any ideas on how to fix this issue?

Its another software issue as far as I can see.

heres my new avatar

at least in theory .


It's working:  however, I find a parrot in a beer-can a strange choice. ;)

Rejects are good enough for brushes, (and there's plenty of both).

In Topic: How Long Do You Like To Be In The Studio?

 But alas, I have too many hobbies to keep track of and often times too little an attention span to enjoy them for as long as I would like to. It's not that I get bored, I just remember something I wanted to go home and paint, or draw, or plant in the garden, or clean my car, or cook dinner, or feed the cat.... where was I going again?




I'm with Sydney, too many hobbies etc: by the time I get where I'm going, I want /need to be somewhere else.


My studio time could be anywhere from two minutes to two hours.

I use home-made casserole dishes in the oven, some of them have been reduction fired to ^10 and some electric fired to ^6.


I've never had a problem, not even with cool, (not cold, just room temperature) dishes going in the oven.


I'd have to say, I've never given it a moments thought before, the oven goes up to about 230°C (140°C -150°C max. for a casserole) and the kiln has already taken them past 1200°C.
