    Hi, welcome to iPF!

    When
    You sign in, you'll find your "Profile" picture at the top left. Tap it:

    Then tap the blank avatar.

    Either there's a picture you intend to use in the Photo app (Choose existing photo), or you take a picture with the built in camera:


    image-865787234.jpg

    When you select the option that's highlighted in my screenshot, you'll get this popup, if you do this for the first time:


    image-3546255095.jpg

    That's what you need to tap. Then you'll see all the albums in your iPad Photo app:


    image-994554865.jpg

    Choose one of the folders and tap the picture you prefer. That done, move and scale it, and confirm your choice by tapping "Use".

    Your new avatar should appear then.

    Hope that helps.

    I don't get that Interface.
    I just get a contacts list when I open Skype.
