How to Add Your Picture

 
If you have not already added a picture to your profile and you wish to do so then here is how to do it. It is entirely up to you what type of image you choose to use. Image file formats supported are jpg, png and gif. Files that are very large will be scaled down automatically to fit the display window.If you have not already uploaded a picture then you will see a generic silhouette of a head and shoulders, otherwise it will be the picture you uploaded before.

  1. Click the ‘My settings’ tab on the left hand side of the screen.  If you have not already uploaded a picture then you will see a generic silhouette of a head and shoulders, otherwise it will be the picture you uploaded before.  This is what will be changed when you upload a new image.
  2. Click the ‘Preferences’ tab at the top of the panel
  3. Click ‘Browse’ on the right hand side of the panel underneath the head and shoulders silhouette. This will open a standard file explorer for your type of device (Windows Explorer, Mac Finder, Linux)
  4. Use this file directory to choose the image you wish to use.  Highlight it and click ‘open
  5. The file menu window will close and you will be returned to the ‘Edit My Settings’ page within the PDS.  Your chosen file name will appear to the right of the ‘Choose File’ button. 
  6. Click ‘Save’ at the bottom of the panel to save your choices and apply the image to your PDS account.
    • If your original image is too large then you will see only a portion of the image displayed. This can be adjusted by clicking ‘Crop picture’. A new window will open that allows you to select the area of the picture you wish to display by dragging and stretching the highlighted box.
    • Once you have selected the area you wish to display just click ‘Save selection’ at the top of the new window and your picture will be updated.
  7. To return to your main data pages click the ‘My data’ tab in the main menu on the left.
