You might have noticed that we have a Profile Page which has the option for both a profile picture and a cover picture. We currently don't have it programed to be able to upload a picture from your computer. BUT, what you can do is link to an already existing image, that's posted anywhere on the web--including here on permies.

First, you find the image that you want (if you don't have one online, you can always attach it to one of your posts), right-click on it, and select "Copy Image Address"



Then, go to your profile settings and paste that URL into the form for either "Profile Picture" or "Cover Picture." Scroll to the bottom of your settings and click "Submit." You're new profile &/or cover picture should now be visible!

Hi Nicole!

Not sure if this is the correct place to report this, but the "change profile picture" button on the new profiles does not appear to be functioning correctly (at least not on the most recent versions of Google Chrome or Firefox).

When you preview your public profile and hover over your profile picture, the site offers to let you "change picture", but clicking on the link brings you back to the main profile info page. It seems like another dialog is opening up very briefly (I've caught glimpses a few times) and then automatically redirects to the profile page.

I may also just be confused. If the intention of this button is just to send one back to the main profile and use this method to link to an existing image in Permies, then I guess it's functioning as intended!

That's currently how it's set up. It'd be lovely if it didn't send someone to their profile, but I think that takes a bit of extra coding, and our developers are rather busy right now! Thank you for checking and pointing it out!
 
Whatever. Here's a tiny ad:
