Unable to save image - when trying to upload my profile picture

Hi, 

 

When I upload a new image and click on Save, I am getting the error: 

 

"Sorry, something went wrong. We were unable to save the image."

 

My image is: .jpg, 25KB

I have already tried different browsers, but the same error appears. 

 

Thanks

Hi Maria,

 

Could you please try uploading the same photo after clearing your browser's cache and cookies? Also, please try to upload a different photo and contact Customer Support if the issue persists.

Hi Dmitry,

 

Our team is working on updating the profile photo uploading process and you'll be able to upload/edit your photo by clicking on it from the home page (Find Work page), but not from Settings. Let me know if you need further assistance.

Hello Vladmir,

I am unable to upload a new profile picture. Can you help?

 

I've tried clearing the cache and browser history but nothing seems to change. Please help. It brings the following message.

Hello Brian,

 

Can you please check if the image you're trying to upload is in .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .png format and at least 250px by 250px? Also, make sure that it's a clear photo of yourself, not a long shot and your face is clearly visible. If it meets those requirements and you still can't upload it then please try using a different browser to check if the problem persists.

 

Please note that your profile must represent you as an individual and that all the information in your profile including your profile photo needs to be accurate, truthful and verifiable. Please check this help article for more information about profile pictures and visit our blog for more tips on choosing an awesome profile photo

 

Thank you

Same old issue.
Tried everything but nothing worked.
Shame for a platform like Upwork.

Hi,

I tried Chrome and Safari, tried clearing cache, tried signing In and out, tried changing photo extensions, tried changing the photo names, tried changing the resolution of the image.


Is there anything else to try , please let me know.

For the last three days, the site has not saved my profile picture, even though I have tried numerous photos, cleared cache and cookies, and used different wifi networks. It seems like it will allow me to upload a picture, but then it will not save it. Screenshots are included.

 

What should I do?

Kara,

 

Could you please make sure the file doesn't exceed 25MB and it's a clear photo of you? Let us know if you continue experience the problem.

Thanks for your reply, Valeria. I am still experienceing the problem, even though the photos I'm trying to save are each under the size limit. They are all clear headshots of me, too. 

 

What's your advice?

Hi Kara, 

I've shared your issue with the Customer Support Team and they will reach out to you via email to help resolve this issue.

Hi Alejandro,

 

Please explain in more detail, Did you keep the circle on your face portion and click on load? If not try it, I hope it will help. 

Hi Alejandro, 

Were you going through any specific error when you tried to upload your profile image? If so, could you please share a screengrab of the error so that we can look into it?
