Adding a picture

Say cheese... you can personalize Google Talk with pictures! Upload pictures for friends to see -- use an image of yourself, or display your favorite icon. You can even select a picture from Google Talk's image gallery. Here's how to choose a Buddy Picture:
  1. Sign in to Google Talk.
  2. Click the image next to your name, at the top of your Friends list.
  3. Select one of the provided pictures, or click Browse... to upload an image from another location.
Your picture will appear immediately, and your friends will be able to see it next to your name and status message in their Friends lists.

If you upload your own picture, just make sure the image file is a .JPG, .GIF, .BMP, or .PNG. Google Talk will automatically resize the image in your file to 32x32.
