How can I update my avatar?

Can someone tell me how to change the picture in my avatar? I looked through previous questions and it said to go to the gear symbol, but when I go there it only gives me notification preferences.

Thank you!

    Click on your name at the top of the page ^

    Then click on the orange button that says "edit profile" . A dropdown box will appear that says "edit preferences". Click on that

    Then on the left hand side of that page the option "Change my picture" will appear.

    Click on that and follow the instructions. You have to upload a picture, then click and drag to highlight it, then choose save.
