Account picture keeps reverting

Hi all!
Since I've installed 10.7, I can't set my user account picture to one of my own photos.
Each time I select my pict and click "set", it reverts to the original (that I want to change out of) after a few seconds.
The picture I want to use is in my Pictures folder.
The problem appears both in System Preferences > Users and Groups AND when editing my card through the Address Book.
Thank you.

I've had the same problem for SO long. I've looked here before, and I've changed the address book and account pictures and my iCloud account picture and address book in iCloud and in my phone. EVERYTHING.
Then today I realised that my problem was being caused by a little setting I'd enabled in the Facebook for iPhone app. Basically, you can set the app (through friends, then this icon in the top right of an arrow) to sync your contacts' photos with those from Facebook so that you have up to date pictures of them.
In those options, there's an option to 'replace existing photos' of contacts. It was turned on. BAD IDEA.
Since my iCloud account has the same name as my Facebook account, the Facebook app was replacing my contact card info on my iPhone to my Facebook photo (which had been my account photo for a short while). Of course, this was syncing to my iCloud account and finally to my computer, changing my account picture to my Facebook photo. Changing it back on iCloud etc was reverted to the Facebook photo every time that I opened the Facebook app, which caused it to sync the contacts' photos on my phone with the friends list ones.
That is why it is really variable how often the picture changes back, because it depends how long it's been since you last opened the Facebook app on your iPhone! Finally, I am SO GLAD that I managed to figure out the root of the problem. Turning off that 'replace existing photos' problem has fixed everything.
I hope that this solves all of you guys' problems too!

  • Email name and user account pictures keep changing

    My wife and I share contacts and calendars using my iCloud account. She syncs her notes and reminders using her iCloud account. This seems to work fine, but a problem has arisen that I suspect is related to this setup that I don't know how to resolve. When I send an email from my iCloud account it now has a from address of "my wife's name <[email protected]>" instead of "my name <[email protected]>". Also the account login picture for my Mac's user account has been replaced with hers. The latter I can reset (I don't know how to fix the former) but eventually the problem seems to recur.  I'm not sure if this is related but our contacts list identifies my address book card with the "this is me" tag.

    #1 I am 99.5% sure (but only 99.5% if you aren't a gambling man) that when you delete a user's account using the accounts preferences all their stuff gets put into a "deleted users" folder in the users directory on the computer, so it is still all there until you trash that folder. Their account is gone but their files are still around.
    #2 I don't actually have an "applications" folder in my account, there is just one at the main directory level, so I don't think each user necessarily has one by default. However, each user has a bunch of preferences so when I start an application it comes up with my preferences. Another user will have the application come up with their preferences. That's not to say I couldn't have an application in my account area, but I could in theory have an application tucked away in any folder or subfolder and not readily identifiable as such. Any applications not in the general applications folder usually won't be accessable to other users so unless you're logging as that old user you may not even know about applications there.

    Why would you delete your iCloud account for a password change with your Yahoo account?
    Regardless, if no problem re-creating your iCloud account on your iPad, contact Yahoo technical support.

  • Since I upgraded to Yosemite my screen saver keeps reverting to the default pictures

    Since I upgraded to Yosemite my screen saver keeps reverting to the default pictures.

    Back up all data. Quit System Preferences if it's running.
    Triple-click anywhere in the line below on this page to select it, then copy the text to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C:
    ~/Library/Preferences/ByHost
    In the Finder, select
              Go ▹ Go to Folder...
    from the menu bar. Paste into the box that opens (command-V), then press return. A folder should open. If it does, look for a file with a long name that begins "com.apple.screensaver". There may be several such files. Move them all to the Trash.
    Log out or restart the computer. Test. If the problem is resolved, empty the Trash and recreate your settings in the Screen Saver tab.

  • HT3529 My icloud account keeps reverting back to my old account on my iPhone?

    Why does my newly created Apple iCloud account keep reverting back to my old account, which happens to be my ex husbands email?

    Sign out of the account on the device and sign in with the new account.
    Just keep in mind that purchases and content are permanently tied to the account they were acquired with.

  • When I put in the right password for my ICloud  account on my Ipad, it keeps reverting to another password.

    I have an Apple Id and a password but the password is different on my Ipad and Iphone. When I reset the password on the Ipad and Iphone, it doesn't save but keeps reverting to an old password which is not the same as my current Apple password - so the computer and the Ipad/Ophone are not syncing. Any suggestions about how to get the right password to stay on the Ipad and Iphone?????

    Settings > iTunes and App Store > Apple ID = Sign Out...
    Then Sign In using the preferred Apple ID.
    Note:
    Anything Downloaded with a Particular Apple ID is tied to that Apple ID and Cannot be Merged or Transferred to a Different Apple ID

  • I have a MacBook Pro running mac osx 10.8, Screen saver keeps reverting to national geographic photos.

    I have a MacBook Pro running mac osx 10.8, Screen saver keeps reverting to national geographic photos.

    Just found this solution on another website. I tried it and it works. No more polar bears and Savannahs!
    Apparently if you put it in the folder called "Desktop Pictures" it will work.
    So, copy whatever folder of pictures you would like to use as your screensaver and then go to:
    Macintosh HD>Library > Desktop Pictures
    Paste your folder into this folder called "Desktop Pictures".
    You may have to enter the administrator code (the password you use to open your mac usually).
    Then, go back to System Preferences, go to Desktop and Screensaver, click on the Screensaver tab on the top, go to the drop down menu beside "Source" (under the picture) and click on "Choose Folder". Navigate to the Macintosh HD>Library>Desktop Pictures and then click on the folder you just pasted in there. Click "Choose" and you're all set.

  • Dreamweaver template (.dwt) keeps reverting to old version after reopening CS3

    I work locally on all files and upload as needed.  After chaging template and applying it, I can upload all associated pages just fine.  If I close DW and reopen, the old version of the template is there without any changes -- even though I saved the template.
    Also, updating the template will change all other web pages except index.html.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Sure.  No nested templates to my knowledge -- especially since I only have one template.  Look like I have some regions in my index.html that don't match the .dwt -- even though the .dwt was created from the .html.  When I tried to update the .html, it really screws up the content.  Let's kill the 1st bird first -- why my ,dwt file keeps reverting to an old version.  Here is the code for the template.  Again, thank you!

  • Can't set account picture

    I just tried to change the picture associated with my (administrator) account. I go to System Preferences, select Accounts, select my account, unlock it, select Picture tab, select Edit..., and then either choose a picture by navigating to it in iPhoto or dragging a picture into the Images window, or taking a video snapshot and selecting Set. The picture shows up as my new account picture but then immediately reverts to the default generic silhouette picture. I can't get the picture I select to stick.
    Something must be corrupted. Can anyone help?

    I've had the same problem for SO long. I've looked here before, and I've changed the address book and account pictures and my iCloud account picture and address book in iCloud and in my phone. EVERYTHING.
    Then today I realised that my problem was being caused by a little setting I'd enabled in the Facebook for iPhone app. Basically, you can set the app (through friends, then this icon in the top right of an arrow) to sync your contacts' photos with those from Facebook so that you have up to date pictures of them.

    Since my iCloud account has the same name as my Facebook account, the Facebook app was replacing my contact card info on my iPhone to my Facebook photo (which had been my account photo for a short while). Of course, this was syncing to my iCloud account and finally to my computer, changing my account picture to my Facebook photo. Changing it back on iCloud etc was reverted to the Facebook photo every time that I opened the Facebook app, which caused it to sync the contacts' photos on my phone with the friends list ones.
    That is why it is really variable how often the picture changes back, because it depends how long it's been since you last opened the Facebook app on your iPhone! Finally, I am SO GLAD that I managed to figure out the root of the problem. Turning off that 'replace existing photos' problem has fixed everything.
    I hope that this solves all of you guys' problems too!

  • Where is the orignal account picture stored?

    I want to keep the one I took while setting up my machine, but can't find it in the pictures/photobooth (or iphoto), or in library/cache.  I took a new account picture but want to change back.  When I run a spotlight search for "photo on" (the beginning of the name for pictures taken with photo booth), my old picture doesn't come up.  I have no 'recent ichat images' folder, and all the account picture editors only show my new picture in the 'recent pictures' option.

    Thanks.  I was looking for one I took with the webcam (not any of the default pics), but after some research, I've determined I unknowingly erased it by choosing a new account picture.
    Lesson learned: save the picture you take while setting up the admin account before changing the picture.  If you don't, it's gone.

  • Account picture changes due to iCloud

    I enabled iCloud om my iMac for my account and my wife's account. This keeps our address books in sync, which is awesome. Today however I noticed that my wife's account had my picture. Quite confusing, so I changed it back to her photo. A few hours later, again my mugshot shows above her name. I suspect iCloud is syncing the me card, and sets the picture of the me card as to OS X account picture. The only work around I've found is to remove the me card, and not assign a new me card. How can I have a me card and not sync the OS X account picture?

    Go to https://getsupport.apple.com ; click 'See all products and services', then 'More Products and Services, then 'Apple ID', then 'Other Apple ID Topics' then 'Apple ID account Security'.
    Your signature says you have 10.5.5 (Leopard) - this seems unlikely if you are using iCloud. If it's not correct please update it as the wrong system can lead to confusion when answers are different depending on the system.

  • Account Picture Looks Squashed

    Recently, I've noticed when I log on to my computer (or awake from sleep), my account picture is suddenly rather squashed and wide.  Now, given it's a picture of myself, the picture is wide enough as is, so if there's any way to remedy this issue, that'd be great.  I've already went into Users & Groups and reinserted the picture, which briefly works, but eventually reverts. 
    So any solutions to this would be greatly appreciated. 
    Thanks!

    Is the image, one that you installed, or one of the default images supplied with the OS?
    The images are stored in HD > Library > User Pictures: In Here
    Do you have more than one account on the system?

  • My desktop image keeps reverting to "stretch to fill screen."

    My desktop image keeps reverting to "stretch to fill screen."  I keep changing it to "fill screen" but next time I power up, it's back to "stretch to fill".  How can I get my Macbook Pro to save the settings with Mavericks?  I never had this issue before.

    By default, Library folders are hidden in user accounts.  To show them, open Terminal and past in the following:
    sudo chflags nohidden /Library/ ~/Library/
    Enter your password when prompted.  Then you can navigate to the folder above and delete the suggested files.  This worked for me.  It was driving me crazy that the desktop kept reverting to the Mavericks wave, as spiffy as it is.

  • Background wallpaper keeps reverting

    Background wallpaper keeps reverting.
    I have an external 24in 1080p monitor attached to my late 2014 15in rMBP via a Thunderbolt to HDMI cable. The background wallpaper I have chosen on my external monitor reverts to one of the standard Yosemite backgrounds (Yosemite 3 to be precise) after a few sleeps or restarts. This is getting to be very annoying as any other wallpaper even another default one just does not stick. I am very computer savvy but this is my first Mac and I'm surprised to be having this problem. Any help at all would be awesome, Thanks!

    1. If you log in automatically, a bug in some versions of OS X will cause the desktop picture to revert to the default image at every startup. The only known workaround is to disable automatic login in the Users & Groups preference pane.
    2. If the selected Desktop picture is stored in an iPhoto library on an external drive, export it from iPhoto and move it to a folder on the startup volume. (Credit for this solution to ASC member janay.)
    3. If the desktop picture always reverts to a plain blue background, one of your login items may be causing the problem. The "TeamViewer" application can have this effect; see this thread. If it's not that in your case, rule out all other third-party login items as possible causes.
    4. If you have a MacBook Pro with automatic graphics switching, disable it temporarily in the Energy Saver preference pane, set the Desktop picture, then restart the computer and re-enable graphics switching.
    5. If none of the above applies to you, proceed as follows.
    Back up all data.
    In the Finder, hold down the option key and select
              Go ▹ Library
    from the menu bar. From the Library folder, delete the following item, if it exists:
              Caches/com.apple.systempreferences
    and move the following items to the Desktop, if they exist:
              Application Support/Dock/desktoppicture.db
              Preferences/com.apple.desktop.plist
    Launch System Preferences and test. If you still have the issue, put the items you moved to the Desktop back where they came from and post again. Otherwise, delete the items.
