If you are using your iPhone then I would say that is the problem as the OS isn't really compatible with uploading files to websites through safari.

Try a different browser, I use safari mainly but also have firefox and chrome. Not sure if it is the website or browser settings but if I have problems with a site a I usually fix it with using a different browser. Also check the size in pixels of your photo as I think it has to be smaller than 600 to be used. May have to downsize it

If the image is showing in your control panel edit avater section then do not click on save changes, it should be loaded.
