How to get your Facebook profile picture onto your SPLASH profile

Nov

I thought I'd explain how to do this because the University Web Team have noticed some users putting in their Facebook profile page URL into the SPLASH profile picture URL box (on the profile settings page). This is on the right track but missing a vital step.

In Firefox,

Go to your Facebook profile page and right click on your profile picture. Click 'View Image'.

The page should open with only your profile image displayed.

Use this URL in the SPLASH profile picture URL box on the profile settings page.

 

In Internet Explorer,

A little more tricky - but that's IE for you.

Go to your Facebook profile page and right click on your profile picture. Click 'Properties'.

In the box that opens up, find the 'Address (URL):'. It will start somethin like this - http://profile.ak.facebook.com/...........

Highlight the entire URL, copy it, and paste it into the SPLASH profile picture URL box on the profile settings page.

 

If you update your Facebook profile picture, I'm pretty sure you will have to go through the steps again if you want the new picture on your SPLASH profile.

Sometime in the future we will be adding the ability to upload your own images directly to SPLASH, but in the mean time, this method is the best way of adding your profile image.

 

I hope that helps!
