County Website How-To: Upload Your Profile Picture

Want to upload a profile picture so that it shows up on your county’s “Contact Us” page?

Step 1: Take a picture

  • Photos should be professional-looking head shots, not action shots or candid pictures.
  • Your picture should have a “portrait” aspect ratio, not “landscape.”
  • Pictures must be resized before uploading. In your county’s Canva account, use the Website – AEM – Extension County – Staff Image Size (600 x 900 px) template.
  • There is a 500 KB file upload limit.
  • Only .jpg files are allowed.

If you have trouble with these steps, email  and we’ll be glad to help.

Step 2: Find your profile page

  • Start at the UGA Extension website.
  • Action 1: Click on About from the main navigational menu and then on the Personnel Directory link.
  • Action 2: Click on the “County” button and find your county.
  • Action 3: Find your name in the list of employees in your county.
  • Action 4: Click on your profile, then locate the “Request Changes” link.

Troubleshooting

Can’t find your profile page? It can take some time for new employees to show up in the personnel directory. If you’re using the “Search” bar, keep in mind that it takes a few days or weeks for new employees to show up in search results. If you’re using the “Browse” option as shown above, your district office may not have added you yet. Check with your district office and ask if you’ve been added to the Personnel Database.

Trying to upload a picture for someone else? Each individual must upload their own profile picture.
