I would like to put a picture on my Seti@home graphics when I bring up the graphics. I've tried following the directions on your website, but the graphics that I choose doesn't come up. Can you help me on this problem?

OK, after you set the image on the website, did you update BOINC so it knew about it as well? To do so, open BOINC Manager->Advanced view->Projects tab, select Seti@Home and click the Update button.

That will download the new preferences from the website into BOINC.
But even then it may need an exit and restart of BOINC, or a new Seti task to start up, before the image is showing.

When I go in the "Advanced Tab", I'm not seeing a "Projects Tab" to do the directions that you indicated.

There is no "Advanced Tab".

There is an Advanced view in contrast to Simple view.

There is an Advanced menu item in advanced view.

There is an Projects tab in advanced view, as Ageless said.

Gruß,
Gundolf

Yes, I'm sorry if it was confusing. I always type the "BOINC Manager->Advanced view->" part, as when BOINC is first installed it will by default start up in Simple View. Which is OK, for most people who don't need to know more, but if you do need to do something specific, it's done in Advanced view.

So this has nothing to do with the Advanced menu.
