Adding your photo to your profile

January 08, 2006

SharePoint Portal Server 2003 allows for individual users to have personal workspaces or "My Sites" to work on projects and collaborate with other users of the portal. Along with their personal site is a user profile. This user profile contains contact information (usually imported from Active Directory) and optional fields such as 'About Me' and 'Picture URL.'

Helpful Tip:
When adding a photo to your profile, be sure to place the image in an area in which all users who access the page will be able to access. If the image is placed in a separate location where some users may not have access, they will be asked to authenticate with credentials which have access to view the photo. Upon a failed authentication, the image will appear broken on the page.
