    Is this in Vanilla 2? When you upload your profile pic, you need to use "Edit My Thumbnail" to determine what part of it will become the thumbnail version shown in discussions. This option doesn't work in Internet Explorer as far as I can tell.

    If it's Vanilla 1, I think we used to just use css to center your image and then only show 32px by 32px of it. It essentially crops your picture using css. It was just a shortcoming of the app.

    It is vanilla 1.1.7 . I can't upgrade otherwise it will cause problems to my Elgg site.
    I tried to tweak the css in the usericon code (gave high values to the padding - the image got larger and I could see all of it, like in the sample above, but I couldnt shrink it.

    I don't know if you can actually shrink it using CSS - I'm not a CSS guru by any means...

    I guess you could change the html to use an image tag and force it down with height & width definitions.
