    Hi All,

    I've done searches on the web and here and unless I'm putting in the wrong keywords, I'm just not having any luck with this issue.

    On my Droid, when I go into my Contacts everything looks fine. When I go into Google Talk, the contact pics are missing or incorrect.

    What's odd is one contact in Gtalk that has the wrong image, the incorrect image does not belong to any other contact but comes from a Picasa contact. I have no idea how that image became associated unless it's wrong in Picasa too. Hmm....

    Any ideas otherwise?

    Google Talk actually pulls and displays the contact pictures that Google Talk users have assigned to themselves. I believe there is an option under gmails settings to set it so that Google Talk will use your own assigned photos instead.

    gTalk uses the image you've assigned to your gMail account. Log onto that and add your image :)

    I realize that goggle talk is displaying the photo that each gmail user has set up, but if I have replaced their photo with one I prefer, is there a way to display that image instead?

    google talk contact picture

    If you press on the picture it should come up with a status box. Press on the picture again. A drop box will appear and now you can select a picture.
