I have exactly the same problem. Skype does not add my profile picture either by browsing or by using the webcam. After adding just the same screen comes back without a picture, nor I have previous pictures displayed. This happens under Windows Vista, Windows 7 and even on Windows 8.1. I am using the latest Skype Version. By changing to a previous version 6.3 the same problem remained.
Hello people - Still no luck finding the answer to wanting to add a profile pic & the option not existing. I am using Windows 7 & have Skype (just installed a few minutes ago) version 6.7. In my profile, when click Edit, I have tons of greyed out areas that don't allow me access to them. This includes the option to add a pic. What is going on Skype people? Are the profile pix only allowed for paying Skypers or --- ? Thanks in advance for anyone's feedback.
A similar case was fixed by using a third party registry cleaner -
Thanks for the info.
UPDATE - via reading many posts under this topic - found the solution!
One must LOG IN to one's Skype account - there one will find the option to add profile pic.
Thanks to all Skypers who posted the answers. Happy Flying! =D
Sorry, I didn't discern =
One must log in to one's Skype account, meaning the log in to actually go "airborne" into Skype - not the website itself. HUGE difference bec at first, when I read others' posts on this, i got frustrated bec I WAS logged into the Skype website. Lol.
So yes, log in as if you are going to Skype! There. =D
