How to Associate a Picture with a Contact on Galaxy Tab

By Dan Gookin

You can set any image on the Samsung Galaxy Tab for a contact. It doesn’t necessarily have to be an image you’ve taken with the Galaxy Tab; any image you find in the Gallery app will do. Follow these steps:

  1. View an image in the gallery.

  2. Touch the Menu icon button.

  3. Choose Set Picture As.

    If the Set Picture As command doesn’t appear, you cannot use that image; not every album allows its images to be set for contacts.

  4. Choose Contact Photo.

  5. Scroll the Tab’s Contacts list and choose a particular contact.

    You can use the Search command to easily locate a contact when you have an abundance of them.

  6. Crop the image.

  7. Touch the OK button.

    Or, touch the X (Cancel) button to chicken out or change your mind.

The contact’s image is set and you’re returned to view the image in the gallery.

Images changed for a Google contact are instantly synchronized with your Google account on the Internet.
