Uploading Profile Pictures
Posted by Dave Laurie on 23 November 2011 11:23 PM

To change your profile picture, navigate to the user dropdown menu by clicking on your name in the top right corner of eClass and select Profile.

From your profile page, select Edit profile.

Next, scroll down to the 'User picture' area, and in the 'New Picture' field, click on the button Choose a file.  The 'File picker' window will open, prompting you to browse your computer, select an image, and upload the file.

Users should verify that a correct image file extension (.jpg or .png format) appears in the file name field once they have uploaded their image (and should develop this as a good habit for all file uploads into eClass). Once uploaded, the image will automatically be cropped to a square and re-sized to 100 x 100 pixels. Add a short, but concise descriptor in the 'Picture Description' field.

 

When you are finished, click Update Profile to save your changes. 

Please note: These changes will only be reflected once you have refreshed the page at least once or cleared your browser cache. Many users have reported that their image is not updating immediately after saving and the issue is solved after they clear their cache and reload the page.
