How can we change our Yahoo Profile picture (2014)?

Up until today, I still had my old Yahoo! Avatars image as my profile pic, even though Yahoo! Avatars site is dead.

Avatars image as my profile pic, even though Yahoo! Avatars site is dead.

I wanted to change my profile pic to something else, so I went to this page https://profile.yahoo.com to change it and I tried clicking on the "no picture" choice, which reverted my profile pic into the default silhouette icon, but that's not what I wanted.

I'd like to upload an image of my own to use as my profile pic.

This page https://help.yahoo.com/kb/PROD_MAIL/SLN3...
contains instructions on how to do it...

But the instructions do not work!

We're supposed to be able to upload a profile picture here: https://profile.yahoo.com

But there's no UPLOAD link anywhere!

When I click on the profile image in the center of the page, there are three choices

1) A "No Photo" choice, that changes the picture into the default blank white silhouette against a gray background.

2) A Facebook connection link, which I don't want to use, because I don't want my Facebook profile pic as my Yahoo pic.

3) A very very old custom profile image that I uploaded to Yahoo ages ago that I don't want to use. I'd like to replace this pic with something else, but I can't find the option to do so anywhere. Yahoo's site format has changed dramatically since I uploaded that pic years ago - whatever method I used to upload it before no longer seems available.
