How to Upload Photos to Your Yahoo

With a Yahoo! account, users can check and send emails, create a profile, participate in Yahoo! Answers and upload photographs to their account for profile use. Photographs added to a Yahoo! account may be used as a default photo on a Yahoo! profile or as a photo for a Yahoo! Answers account. Photos allow other members to get an idea of who they're speaking with. Adding photographs to a Yahoo! account only requires a few minutes of your time.
