We’ve just added a fun new feature for Paid and Permanent account holders: the userpic selector! To try it out, just hit the new “Browse” button next to your userpic dropdown on the Update Journal, Edit Entry and “Quick Reply” comment forms.
You can scroll through thumbnail previews of your userpics as well as search for them by keywords. This feature is an excellent tool for those of you who have a ton of userpics.
UPDATE: Some people have mentioned that they can't get the userpic selector to work when they're commenting on posts in communities. Please try reloading the page (SHIFT+Refresh, or clear your cache) to get the updated files, and try again.
Ah. Yup - apparently, it takes a really long time to load the first time, even on a T3 connection. Not so long after that, though.
I would also have to agree with troworld - double-clicking on an icon should select it.
Not by my experience - about 5 seconds the first time on a PC, three or four seconds on a Mac. I think they're tweaking the code.
That's really cool, except when it brings up the thumbnails, they appear to be in absolutely no rational order at all. That makes it rather less useful than it might otherwise be.
It amuses me that they are in no order whatsoever. Not alphabetical, not by date loaded, not by anything.
And by hee, I mean 'forget that, I alphabetized for a reason'.
Awesome, I'll definitely use this feature!
Damn it, now I wanna get a paid acct again ::opens purse and watched moths and spiderwebs fly out:: guess not.

Excuse me but...
Where did you get your icon?
Nifty. I won't be using this much, since I keyword my icons with a lot of detail, but it's good for people who can't remember their icons.
Although, loading time is absolutely horrible. I've only got 7 icons, on a DSL connection takes over 5 minutes.
Excellent, that's very useful! Thanks! :)
I'm loving this new feature.
Overall, though, I'm pretty organized. <3
Still neat and useful!
loff your new icon Frank!!!
