We now have the ability to upload a profile image without using Gravatar. I like that.

But I would like to change my profile picture on ALL SE accounts using that new method. Currently I have to open all my profiles seperately and upload the image manually. I don't even have the ability to choose an already uploaded image from another SE account.

Can we please have a button like: Save image to all Stack Exchange Accounts like we have one for other profile information?

  • See here for a feature-request to fix the problem with the current method. – Lance Roberts Jan 15 '13 at 14:58

As mentioned in the comments on the answer you linked to,

...the Save and copy profile to all Stack Exchange profiles will work to sync all avatar images network wide just as it does currently for the About Me section.

So, you can simply sync your profile data network wide using the existing button, and your uploaded image will come with it.

    I've tried this. It doesn't work for the self-uploaded avatars. – Mysticial Jan 15 '13 at 15:00
  • Using this method will override all individual profile info in other accounts – juergen d Jan 15 '13 at 15:00

    @Mysticial Works for me, status-norepo. – Tim Stone Jan 15 '13 at 15:03
  • Then lemme try it again. I last tested this when the feature was first rolled out. – Mysticial Jan 15 '13 at 15:04
  • Oh you're right. It does work now. I guess I tried when they were still tinkering with the new feature. – Mysticial Jan 15 '13 at 15:05

    @juergend Well, true. In that case this would just be a more specific implementation of this request, I suppose. – Tim Stone Jan 15 '13 at 15:06
  • @Tim, it isn't working, I gave it a day to sync pictures and it still hasn't done it. – Lance Roberts Jan 15 '13 at 15:36
  • @LanceRoberts Syncing with the network profile is seemingly a separate issue, but the button does indeed work for syncing across per-site accounts. – Tim Stone Jan 15 '13 at 15:36
  • @TimStone, no, I just checked Super-User and it doesn't sync there either, also Webapps. – Lance Roberts Jan 15 '13 at 15:38
  • @LanceRoberts Hmm, not sure what to tell you then. I tested it after Mystical's comment and clicking the "Save And Copy Profile To All Stack Exchange Accounts" button when editing my profile pushed the image out to my other accounts no problem (and then selecting my Gravatar and doing the same switched them back). – Tim Stone Jan 15 '13 at 15:41
  • @TimStone, I've been clicking on " Sync with oldest profile (Stack Overflow)." a bunch in my network profile, and it says it synced, but hasn't. My "about" hasn't synced either. – Lance Roberts Jan 15 '13 at 15:44
  • @LanceRoberts That's a different button that just syncs your network profile, but doesn't copy data across per-site accounts. And that (per the above link) doesn't seem to take your non-Gravatar image at the moment. – Tim Stone Jan 15 '13 at 15:48
  • @TimStone, so where is the button you're talking about? – Lance Roberts Jan 15 '13 at 15:50
  • @LanceRoberts At the bottom of this page, which is rather unintuitive for this use case. – Tim Stone Jan 15 '13 at 15:52
  • @TimStone, thanks, that did the trick. – Lance Roberts Jan 15 '13 at 15:53
