    Go into your profile. Next to the Reputation tab is a Customize button.

    I think That Little Trophy means the background of the profile page itself. There's an option to use a picture versus a solid color.

    I had a hard time getting mine to work as well, but forget how I finally got it to work, as it was years ago I had put a picture (now I have a color). Someone else might know.

    edit: If you go to "page background", you can use an image or a color. Are you using a hosted image?

    That just hit me, forgot about that. Was just editing my prior response when I saw yours.

    It says that I need to paste the image link. I did it, clicked sumbit and then save. But nothing happens. A solid color works for me, but no pictures.

    The image host might block image hotlink. Try to save image somewhere else and use the link to the image itself. Link must end with file type such as ".png".
    Pay attention to which type offile is allowed.

    I have picture as background on my profile, will check later for how-to

    It's on my phone, maybe that's why it doesn't work. I tried a png too, but it doesn't work. Im going to try on my pc.

    That is not an image, rather it is a link to a viewer which houses the image. Try this address, the link to the image itself ...

    Using that address begets ...

    Same site, notice the domain name.

    Usually, when you right click on image, you get option to copy image link.
