    Hello,

    Whenever I change my photo on the admin account on my MBP it just reverts back to the original photo. It's driving me nuts. Sometimes it will be there until I do a restart, then it's back to the old one.

    Anyone had a problem with this or can offer a solution?

    Much Thanks,

    T

    is the hard copy of the photo located on a drive that is accessible at boot? This can be a problem at least with desktop pictures, don't know about user pics.

    It's just a photo from my iPhoto Library. If that helps

    weird. well, maybe try dragging it from iPhoto straight to the pictures folder or somewhere else out of the way and then reassigning the user pic to the new copy.

    hopefully someone else will know what the exact problem is.

    I went in the address book and changed the photo under myself and strangely enough, that changed the photo in my login. However, it did not change the photo in address book???? Now that's just bizarre! So still stuck.
