Unable to change my profile picture

Please community I need your help am new to this platform I use another platform before I migrated to upwork. When registered my account I use a different picture and I aimed to change it back when I have time to upload an acceptable picture. Until I landed my first job and wanted to verify the account that I noticed that my profile picture can not be changed. Please I will be very grateful if you can help me with this I only have a day left to verify this.

I'm also unable to change my profile photo. I need guidance on this.

Hello Daisy,

 

I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble updating your profile photo. Can you please confirm if you're getting any error messages on your end whenever you try uploading it? Please check if the image you're trying to upload is in .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, or .png format and at least 250px by 250px and no more than 4000 x 4000px. Also, make sure that it's a clear photo of yourself, not a long shot, that your face is visible, and that the following requirements are met:

  • You are not wearing sunglasses in the photo
  • It is not a logo or clip-art
  • It is not a group photo
  • The picture was not digitally-altered
  • The maximum size is 5 MB
If it meets those requirements and you still can't upload it, please try clearing your cache and cookies and using a different browser to check if the problem persists.
