Dotsie, if you want to make a PPt it's really simple - I just don't know how to explain this to you. :P
You put the image, as it is into the presentation, click on it and then you go to Format (if you have Microsoft Office 2007, it's the last little...thingie... the first from the right... on top!) and then there's a whole scale of forms you can put your image in :D Even round ;)
Listen.

I've got paint so if you give me the picture I can probably make it round for you ;)

We have a winner! Thanks mC ;) (and thanks everyone else too). I was using an older version at work, & I swear it wasn't on there. Sorted now though :D

You should be able to upload it directly from your computer as long as it's not too bit (physically and file sized).

Click on your "User Control Panel" at the top left of your screen.
Select the tab that says "Profile".
Then select the tab that says "Edit Avatar".
Use the "Browse" option to find the picture which, presumably, you have stored in a file on your computer.
Click on the file and select "open".
Once the avatar has loaded, click "Submit".

If the software says the picture is too big, let me know and I'll have a go at getting it the right size. :D

does anyone know which version of the PoverDvd program can allow me to capture an image from a film WITH the subtitles?
I tried with PowerDvd9 but it's not, the image comes out without subtitles.I had it once, but don't know what it was.. :think:

Have you tried with VLC Media Player?

I looked for it, downloaded it, but it appears it can't capture images at all!!! :(
EDIT:But then again, if you only knew how to use it, you might find out that it does, indeed! :oops: :oops: and with subtitles too!! :dance: Thank you Oberon :P

As far as image capture goes, you can always use the 'Print Screen' button on your keyboard and then paste it to a program that allows you to crop the image. 8-)

I had thought of the 'print screen' button, but it doesn't work. In any way. It doesn't capture anything. I used it once, years ago with another computer, it was ok, but now I have to find other ways. ^_^

On my laptop the Print Screen button is automatic. Saves it as it is in an image...

On this computer you have to transfer (copy and paste) it to Paint then save.
