Individual user profile pictures can be added to a user profile by both an Administrative user (with appropriate permissions) and by the individual. Individual users may update profile pictures for themselves and anyone in their profile from the Public side.
Profile pictures are displayed to logged in users on the Public side. Instructor pictures are also displayed with an Instructor biography when attached to a Course Section. Administrative users will see pictures for all users who have profile pictures within the Contacts > People > Show User screen.
Administrative users with appropriate user permissions may edit or remove profile pictures for all users. (User permissions are edited by those in your organization with the rights to do so by browsing to System > User Permissions.)
