Yesterday, I did an update of Skype (offered when I logged in to Skype), but now my profile picture has disappeared!!! How can I get it back???
I can't re-create the picture, because I do not have access to its original source. So I really want it back. And, I don't understand why Skype messes-up my profile with an upgrade?
you can contact Customer Support to ask if there is a possibility to recover
as for why your profile picture was deleted, I think you may have taken a wrong option during the upgrade, but that is water under the bridge
Skype now uses the profile image a bit differently than in the past (to allow it to be re-sized properly, and to show better resolution under some circumstances, so there was valid reason to re-establish your profile picture during the upgrade
it is unfortunate that you no longer have access to the source image file
