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.

Initial reaction: COOL! Awesome idea, guys. Imma go try this *right now*.

After checking it out: COOL! But why aren't my pics sorted alphabetically by keyword like they are in the text-only list? They seem to be in a completely random order! It's almost harder to find the one I want this way, since my lead-in keyword is a general topic, followed by more specific descriptors.

Not really needed for me since I use LJ hook and don`t care what comes up, but it`s nice, I guess, when it works in firefox?

Then again, so is the ability to edit comments.

Interesting. Thumbnails rule. I already had my upserpics organised by topic and name, though, so it's a little redundant for me. It also doesn't translate to Semagic, so I won't hardly use it. Thanks for the new approach, though. It's a good idea.

Even on (basic) broadband, the thumbnails take far too long to load, even on subsequent occasions, for this to be at all useful for me.

I had really hoped when we first heard of this option that it might be much like GJ's icon preview that a couple of other people have already mentioned, as that is a fantastic feature. Unfortunately, though, as it stands, I won't be using the product, because I don't feel like waiting around five minutes for my icons to load every time I want to choose one. I hate to think what it's like on dial-up.

I suggest that you investigate GJ's methods, or at least find a way to make the current method a helluva lot quicker to load if you want this to be a viable option.

(Oh, and I'm on IE, so it's not just a firefox issue.)

This is great. Has inspired me to upload more of my icons.

btw I'm using Firefox and have has absolutely no trouble loading it. Loaded very quickly actually. But maybe that's because I don't have a whole lot of icons at the moment.

I agree, way too much is being done for those who do not pay and help keep the site running that way, it seems like there are fewer and fewer "perks" of paying, it's all taking away from it, and rather upsetting
