Mines not working. I can upload the image, but once that is done I get no further prompts to do anything. I can click the Upload from Flicker, I can't even click on my Library.

Does this require a Pro account to occomplish?

Good, nice and easy for people not sure what there doing - I would suggest adding a couple of sections about picking a profile pic, and what looks good, and what doesnt, also maybe using something like paint to alter the size etc.
