Set Image as Profile Picture

How it works

Any image can be set as a profile picture in BuddyPress or WordPress, as shown below:

Use these steps to set an image as the profile picture:

  1. Click an image.
  2. On the individual page or lightbox that opens, click Set as Profile Pic. selection_062
  3. Without BuddyPress, the image is directly set as the profile picture in WordPress. If you are part of a BuddyPress community, the Change Avatar page opens to allow you to crop the image before using it. With the cropping tool, set the desired dimensions and shape and click Crop Image. This will set the cropped image as the profile picture.
