Changing the image of a contact

If a contact already has a thumbnail image, you can replace an existing image with another.

To change the thumbnail image, do the following:

  1. In the Contacts view, double-click the contact whose image you want to change.

  2. In the contact information dialog, click the current image. The Open dialog box is displayed.

  3. Locate the new image. The supported image formats are *.jpg, *.jpeg, *.jpe, *.jfif, *.bmp and *.png.

  4. Click Open.

  5. Click Yes to confirm the change.

  6. Click Save contact.


The contact’s image is replaced.

The thumbnail image size is 80 x 96 pixels, and any imported image is automatically resized to this size.


When viewing your contacts in the thumbnail view, the quickest way to change the image of a contact is to drag-and-drop an image from the file system.
