View feature demonstrations relevant to this topic.
Note: A new profile tool, Profile, is available as an open pilot for all users via My Workspace. The original Profile tool, described here, continues to provide information for site rosters. See ARCHIVED: Relationship between Profile, Profile 2 Beta, and Roster.
To add a picture (other than your university ID photo) to your profile, you must first upload the desired image file to Resources in your My Workspace site; see Resources for instructions. You can select an image file of any size, but it will be automatically resized to 75x75 pixels when displayed in your profile.
After you've uploaded your image file:
- From your My Workspace menubar, click
Edit my Profile.
- Next to "Picture", choose
Use Picture URL:. Then, in the corresponding field, enter the URL for your image file in Resources. For instructions on finding the URL, see Finding the URL of a Resources item.
Note: If you want your profile to display your university ID photo, select
Use University Id Picture. If you choose this option, you do not have to upload a picture to your Resources or paste a URL into the field.
Save. You should now see your image file displayed next to your name under "Profile".
Others will see your picture displayed in your profile unless you
Hide my entire Profile or
Hide only my
Personal Information in your profile settings.
All the following feature demonstrations include audio, and each link will open a new window.
