Your illumy profile image, or Avatar, is how you show yourself on illumy. It can be anything you like: photos and moving pictures (GIFs) are both OK. But, choose carefully – your profile image can be seen by everyone on illumy. 👁


To upload or change your profile image, make sure you’re logged in to illumy. Click or tap your profile picture at the top right corner of the screen. From the menu, click or tap My Profile. Next…
