Source image added as profile image

+7 votes

I added a "Source" image to a profile and somehow his profile picture was updated to the image.  I double-checked that the checkboxes for primary image are unchecked, verified the image is set as "Source" and not a "Photo", but the profile still shows up with the image. Any idea what needs to be done to have this image available for viewers but no longer show up as the profile picture?

Hi Dave.

Just go to François's edit page, scroll down till you find "Edit Photo Settings" at the right hand side column, check the box "remove as primary" and click on "SAVE CHANGES".

The image will be removed as the profile's primary photo.

Hi. You need to uncheck the "primary Photo" box, click on "set primary" button underneath and then scroll down to the bottom left hand side and click on the big green "Save changes to image details" button

As mentioned in the question, changing the image settings didn't have any effect, the solution by Rubèn editing the profile itself and checking the "remove as primary" solved it for me.  Still, thank you for your time, its appreciated!

And Thank you for showing appreciation for Michelle's answer.

I think profiles look so much better with even just the anonymized person-silhouette as the image than when the profile picture is a gravestone or a scanned record.  Our ancestors were not rocks!  Maybe with a bit more leeway for when the headstone engravings are unique and beautiful and photographed well.

It's purely as a matter of aesthetics, I really do appreciate it when editors take the time to un-set sources as the primary photo on profiles.
