Please add a picture (also called an avatar) to your profile. While it is preferable to show GCconnex users who you are, if you aren’t comfortable adding a photograph of yourself, add an image that identifies you (make sure it is a photo that you have the rights to use!) To do this:


  1. Click on your profile icon at the top right of the page, under the navigation bar. 
  2. Click My Profile. 
  3. From your profile page, there are two methods to get to the same screen. Either click on your avatar (this will be a grey silhouette if you haven't added a photo yet), OR click Edit on your profile tab, which brings you to the Edit Basic Profile screen. 
  4. Click Edit Avatar.  

  5. On the next screen, click Browse to choose a file from your computer, then click Upload. 
    • If you need to, use the avatar cropping tool to make sure the image is cropped to your preference. 
    • Depending on your group membership, you may be able to add a badge to your profile. 


  6. Remember to click Create your avatar (at the bottom of the page) before exiting Edit avatar.
