How do you add a custom photo to your profile's background?
When I try to add a custom photo to my profile background, I upload it, and drag it to the into the bio section (which works for the default pictures). It looks like it works when in the edit section, but when I save the changes and look on my profile, I notice that the background turns blue (one of the colors within my photo), but the photo doesn't show. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
Your image might be very big. Try to decrease its dimensions.Good luck!
The drag and drop square in your edit profile section, where the options for photos are, tells you if the photo is too big and can reduce it for you. I found that the trick is to have the colourful, interesting bits of the photo at the sides, as the profile text blocks the centre of your picture. Makes the site more interesting to have a photo though. Hope you get there!
I'm not trying to answer my question, I'm trying to comment on dailytop10's response: Other ones I tried wouldn't finish uploading because they said it was too big. But this is smaller, and it looks to be small enough. I'm unsure how to decrease the dimensions, but I will play around with it. Thanks for the answer.

Please check my profile background. I have my own photo up but it's not working, looks glitchy. I've noticed this for sometime now but it seems to be getting worse. Will check back later. Thanks.

I just updated my HubPages profile a couple days ago and in my profile linked to some of my favorite hub topics that I wrote about. Is this bad to do this since on the profile page we have those same hubs randomly come...

The background on my profile page is gone - is this an issue or did I miss something? I hope they aren't being taken away because that was like the only place to show a little personality. What's up?

I pretty much thought that this went out of fashon about 6 or 7 years ago. However over the last week, I have seen several people operate on the basis that if they add you, then you must add them. Someone has just also...
