It might be obvious from the wording of the option which rwakeford gave but I thought it might be worth mentioning there is no sync, the option just allows you to display (or not) your address book contacts within Skype

Hi Alf & Mo,

been trying to get you for days but for some reason it appears Skype are messing about somehow with their system. I can't even retrieve the voicemail message is appears you've left me yet?

Buddy Hell Bro, this is a job and half I'm going to Flemings Rope Works now and get some milk bottles instead...Are you coming???

Sisterly Love and to Mo and family as ever,

Pam x

Erm, this isn't Skype, this is the Skype forum.

Some of my contacts have their own photo set up, and some are 'blank'.  

 

Is there a feature whereby I can assign a photo to each contact in my address book (regardless of whether THEY can see the photo or not) -- I like being able to 'see' the person's face when I'm skyping (even when not using video).

 

I'm a mac user, and we are able to assign photos to our contacts (they are unaware of what photos we've assigned, but that doesn't matter).   Hope this makes sense.
