Difficulties updating avatar

I thought I'd celebrate my 200 day streak by finally adding an avatar. Unfortunately, I appear to be having difficulties.

Even when I select an image, there is no option to upload it:

Hi Druckles! Once you select your image as you have done in the picture, did you make sure that you clicked Save Changes (which is at the top right of the page)? As far as I'm aware, this uploads the picture and adds it to your profile in one go. Congratulations on your long streak and Happy Duolingoing! :)


Many thanks. This wasn't as obvious as it should have been.

I would like to take this opportunity to request a 'Save changes' button at the bottom of each page as well as the top. It's a basic interface requirement.
