After login, you can upload your photo to your profile. There are two ways to do this task: the simpliest way is to upload a photo from your local computer. Alternatively, you can upload a photo image file from your local computer to your profile web page after you log in. After log in, you can copy a web URL of your image to your member profile page, and the umacp.org system automatically retrieves your photo from the indicated page and shows your picture on the http://www.umacp.org/members.php web page. If you want to change your own image, you can do so easily by changing it to a different URL. To find an existing photo URL, you can go to a web page where your photo is included, right click your photo and choose 'copy image location' in Firefox. To to get the URL of an image file in Internet Explorer, right-click on the image, and left-click on "Properties" in the menu. This will display the image URL, and you can copy it accordingly.  Then you can paste your image location/URL to the corresponding location in our member profile form.
