Uploading a profile picture is highly recommended for all Higher Logic users for a number of reasons, but first and foremost it lets other users "put a face to the name," helping you seem less like a digital stranger and more like a real person. Ultimately, something as simple as uploading a picture, a process that takes less than a minute, can give you a stronger connection to your community.
NOTE: For best results, your profile picture should be 200px square at 96 dpi.
From your profile, you can upload a profile picture in one of three ways:
- Upload a picture - Click Change Picture and browse for the desired image on your computer or network or use any of the available third-party options (e.g., connect to Facebook, Google Photos, Instagram, etc.).
- Use a Gravatar - Gravatar stands for Globally Recognized Avatar. Your Gravatar is an image that follows you from site to site, appearing beside your name when you do things like comment on a blog, post to a forum, etc. How it works is when a user contributes content (with email) on a site that supports Gravatar, like Higher Logic, it automatically pulls their Globally Recognized Avatar from Gravatar servers. This allows you to keep your identity consistent across all the sites you belong to.
If you've created an account at www.gravatar.com, you can use your "G-rated" image as your Higher Logic profile picture if your account email address matches your gravatar.com account. You can also use this method to replace an uploaded image.
NOTE: Gravatar functionality requires setup by Higher Logic. To enable gravatars on your site, please submit a support ticket.
- Import from LinkedIn - You can click this button to import your LinkedIn profile picture, along with other profile information, if this feature is available on your site.
