Your Profile

Keep your Realm profile information updated.

Your profile contains all the information that church staff and others with appropriate permissions can view about you.

Add Your Photo

Share your smile! Add your photo to your profile page.

  1. Log in to your church's Realm site.
  2. Click your name in the upper-right corner, and select My Profile.
  3. Point to the image to the left of your name and click it.
  4. Browse to the image you want to use and select it.
    Tip: Ideally, the image you choose should be 172 x 172 pixels. If needed, you can use any photo or graphics program to determine and alter the size of your image.
  5. Adjust the image size using the slider. If your image is larger than 172 x 172 pixels, you can zoom out until it fits in the dashed-line center square. Anything outside of the square is removed. If your image is smaller, you can zoom in but you might lose resolution.
  6. Click Save. You might need to refresh the page to see your changes.

Update Your Photo

You can change the photo that displays on your profile.

Note: Photo Quality

Once you add a photo, Realm makes a copy of it at its new, smaller size and works with that copy from then on. If you return to your profile photo to make changes, you'll only have the new version to work with. So the quality won't be as good as your original. For best results, when editing your profile picture, delete the existing photo and use your original again.

  1. Log in to your church's Realm site.
  2. Click your name in the upper-right corner, and select My Profile.
  3. Point to the image to the left of your name and click it.
  4. Click New Profile Photo.
  5. Browse to the image you want to use and select it.
  6. Adjust the image size using the slider.
  7. Click Save. You might need to refresh the page to see your changes.

  1. Log in to your church's Realm site.
  2. Click your name in the upper-right corner, and select Manage Account.
