    Good morning,

    My account picture keeps defaulting back to this cute little butterfly (I'm a dude) no matter how many times I try and change it under system preferences/Users and groups it. Anyone run into anything similar?

    I am running the latest version of LION.

    Thanks in advance.

    Let me clarify.

    I've tried the above several times and it keeps reverting back to the butterfly. I've tried unlocking, changing the picture and locking followed by a restart and it still reverts.

    Make the change in your Address Book. Make a entry for yourself with the photo you want then designate that entry as "My Card" from the Address Book Card menu.

    That appears to have fixed it. I guess when I had that address book archive/vcard issue a few weeks back (That I believe you helped me with) I must have imported the Flower pic by default or something??


    I hope it stays fixed. Either way thanks again for the great help.

    From the thread I posted a link to:
    All it takes is clicking and reading. It was pretty hard to miss.

    I did click and read...the first 4 posts which were steps I had already taken. I guess I could have read on further...
