Can someone tell me how to upload my pictures for my cover picture and profile picture?  I see a space in "general information about yourself" for these pictures but I am unable to upload any pictures to these spaces

Hi Joshua,

Generate a photo link via Google Photos.

Go to this website or a similar one.  Embed Google Photos


Put your Google Pic link in the space at the top of the page and click generate code.  It takes a second.

Scroll Down and you will see a Direct Link (URL) has been created.    

Use the Direct Link (URL) to put in the about me boxes.  Do the same for the profile and the wallpaper.   FYI the wallpaper doesn't allow for adjustments so you will have to play with pictures to get what you want.

Hope this helps.

You can also just post the pictures here on permies and copy the image url address and paste it in the box in your profile. See tutorial here: https://permies.com/t/74389/Add-Cover-Picture-Profile-Picture

(and, yeah, I found it a bit confusing, too!)
