Deleting Profile Picture

    How do I edit my profile photo?  I go to "Account" "Edit Your Profile" and then click on "change photo" but it takes me right back to the page to upload a photo.  I don't want to upload a new one.  I just want to delete the current one because I don't like the way it looks.

    Am I missing something or is this an issue with HubPages?  There is no way to delete a profile image, instead you are basically forced to upload a new one.  What if you decide you don't want an image anymore?

    Thanks anyone.

    I suggest you email the HubPages team and ask them.

    However, if it does turn out that you must have a photo, why not choose an image or a photo you like?  There are plenty of people here with pictures of flowers or landscapes instead of people.  You're trying to market yourself here, so having something on your profile that says something about you is quite important, IMO.

    You could find something on Flickr (do an Advanced Search and tick the "Creative Commons" box, then make sure you acknowledge the photographer in your bio and provide a link).
