How do I change my profile photo?

You can customize your profile by changing your picture, called an “avatar.” Once you have logged in, go to your profile by clicking on the icon in the top right corner, visible on every Commons page. Click “Change Profile Photo” at the top right hand corner of your profile.

On the next screen, you can click the Take Photo tab to take a picture with your device’s camera. You can also use the Select your File button and upload an image from your computer.

Once you’ve found the image you want to use for your profile, you will be asked to crop it so that it fits into the space allotted for it on the page. Drag the corners of the square until you see the cropping you want, then click Crop Image. That’s all you need to do—now you have an avatar. If you don’t like the picture or don’t like the way it’s cropped, you can repeat this until you are happy with it.
