How to upload your picture in Twitter – Step by step
A few attendees to my Social Networking seminars have told me they’ve had some problems uploading their photograph to Twitter so I thought it would be a good idea to publish some very simple step by step instructions for everyone.
As you can see from the screen capture to the right, Twitter does give you a little help in selecting the right photograph, and gives some advice on copyright, but unfortunately it’s not very helpful if you’re new to this kind of thing, particularly if your not very computer savvy.
Here’s a link to my article “Top Ten Tips To Create a Twitter Image That Attracts More Business” which gives valuable advice on chosing a good photo for uploading to Twitter which you should find it very useful.
If you are proficient with computers please accept my apologies for the simplicity of this article, but please remember that this is really for those novices who dearly want to become part of the social networking scene, who run into problems that stop them from doing so.
I’m looking for a full time role as Head of Social Media and Communities. Is there any chance you could help me please? – Many thanks! 🙂Click here to find out more >
So, let’s get on with the step by step instructions!
Log onto your Twitter account andclick on Settings in the Twitter menu
From the settings page, click the Picture Tab
On the Picture Setting page click the Choose File button
When the File Open dialogue dialogue box appears;
Navigate to the folder where you saved your photograph and click it.
You should see your photograph’s filename in the File name box at the bottom.
NOTE: You can only upload a photograph that meets the following criteria:
- Smaller than 700k
If you’re happy to upload the photograph you selected then click the Open button
You should now see the filename you selected in the Picture Settings tab.
Click the Save button
If the picture you chose meets the criteria I mentioned above you shoud see a message “That’s a nice picture!”
If you didn’t meet the criteria, go back to Step 3 and and repeat the process, selecting a file that does meet the criteria
Click the Home button to view your picture in your Twitter profile
You should now see your picture in your Twitter profile, click your photograph
Now click your picture to see yourself in all your glory and give yourself a big pat on the back for a job well done!
