Edit Profile Pictures
To find out how to edit other profile entries, or how to get to the picture area, see our editing profiles page.
Choose a Yahoo! Picture
You can use one of Yahoo's cartoon type pictures. Once you have clicked "Edit Picture", you are presented with a gallery of them. Select the picture you like, by placing a check in the circle and then selecting "Change Picture" to save changes.
Upload From Your Computer
This lets you take a picture from your computer you have saved earlier, and put it onto your profile. For Animated GIFs, see below!!!
File Types: Only .jpg is accepted for upload
Once you have selected "Upload From Your Computer" you
are presented with the box to enter the file name, such as c:\myimage.jpg
. If you don't know the exact location, select "Browse"
and find the image, and select open.
Link to an image on the web
Yahoo! removed this feature in June/July 2003 for security reasons. If you have a profile that currently uses an image on the web, it will still work though!
If you upload an animated GIF to your profile, it will not animate. Yahoo! stopped this.
Yahoo! photo Albums
Select "Yahoo! Photos" to use an image in your Yahoo! Photo Album. You will be taken to your album, find the picture you wish to use, and select "Use Photo". This will set your profile picture to that photo.
