3) Click the grey Change button under the current Tab Image preview thumbnail to select an image file to upload for your new tab image.

You may also change the Tab Name from this screen if you'd like (just type in the text you want to display as the tab name).

After you've made the changes you wanted to, make sure to click the green Save Settings button to apply the changes you've made.
