Click on your image top right, go to account, go settings, upload a new image, make sure you set the size before uploading. Then wait it will take a while..

yeah. i guess Apiary forum has a lot different program design from e.g. Facebook. as i currently understand it, my guess is: program instead of loading a source profile picture of person who posted a comment, program copies profile picture on every comment (that's why profile picture are 100x100 pixel and less then 5KB. aka "poor quality". if they were larger it would eat trough free space on server computer). in order to change picture, server needs to search trough every topic and comment on forum and then change value. so i guess it takes some time. :D
