If your institution has enabled profile pictures, you can add and change profile pictures in your account. If you do not see a placeholder picture in your user settings, your institution has not enabled this feature.
There are three ways you can select a profile picture to use throughout Canvas:
Tips for profile pictures:
In Global Navigation, click the Account link , then click the Settings link .
Click the profile picture icon.
Note: If you don't see a placeholder profile picture icon, your institution does not allow you to add or change your profile picture.
To upload a new profile picture, click the Upload a Picture tab , then click the choose a picture link . You can also drag a picture from your desktop and drop it into the uploader.
Find the image you want to upload and click the Open or Browse button.
Use the selection boxes to crop your image . When you are finished, click the Save button .
Note: Canvas will automatically store a copy of the saved profile picture in your personal files. When a new picture is saved in your profile, the new picture will override the existing picture file in your personal files.
To take a picture to use as your profile picture, click the Take a Picture tab , then click the Take Picture button .
Note: Depending on your browser, you may need to allow Canvas to access your camera. The Take a Picture option is not supported when using Safari or Internet Explorer.
To take another picture, click the Retry button . When you are finished, click the Save button .
If your institution allows Gravatars and you have a Gravatar account, you can import an existing Gravatar to use as your profile picture.
Click the From Gravatar tab  and enter your Gravatar email address in the field provided . Click the Preview button to view your Gravatar. When you are finished, click the Save button .
Note: Before adding a photo in your Gravatar account, you will have to rate the photo. Please note that only G-rated Gravatar photos can be displayed as a Canvas profile picture.
The Profile picture you selected will show up instead of the placeholder profile picture.
Profile pictures are linked to your personal files, so you can easily delete them to remove old profile pictures.
Note: Gravatar images cannot be deleted from your account through your personal files. However, Gravatar images may be replaced with an uploaded image or with a captured image using the Take a Picture option.
To delete a profile picture, click the Files link.
Next to the file you want to delete , click the Options icon  then click the Delete link .
