Can't put up a profile picture!!

I go to account settings to put up a profile picture, but it doesn't give me the option to. How do I put one up??

Same here.  Is this something you have to have a premium account to do?

Re: Can't put up a profile picture!!

in the Skype client, click your Skype Name (above the Contact List) and then select the Profile tab

then click Change Picture, followed by Browse on the next screen to open the Skype Pictures folder (assuming you don't want to 'Take a picture' using your webcam)

if you don't see the picture you would like to use in the Skype Pictures folder, you can navigate elsewhere to find something suitable

I get the "browse" option, I browse to find the picture I want, but it never loads on Skype.  Is there another step that I do not see?

Re: Can't put up a profile picture!!

The picture you want to use has to be *.png and within the folder:
C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roamin\Skype\Pictures\

This is new since before it took jpges from random folders, too. They seem to have changed something.

Not entirely true. See this:

You will have to save picture in:

My Documents

My Skype Pictures

 

I have saved picture as .jpeg and it did work.
