add, change, or delete your profile photo

Here, you can upload an image that you think represents you to everyone on illumy. It can be anything you want: a photo of your cat, an animated GIF of your favorite cartoon character, etc. You could even put an actual headshot of yourself—so cutting edge. 😀 (Note that your profile photo is visible to all illumy members.)

To upload or change your profile photo, tap or click “My Profile Photo” in the My Profile section, and then…
