The first step is to have a photo of your contact on your phone in your camera roll. You might already have a picture there, or you may need to take one.
We took this picture of our friend Homer (not really) and we want to add his photo to our contact page for him.
Go to Contacts and tap on your contact’s name. You will see a square with a silhouette. That is where the picture will go.
Tap on the box that says “add photo”, and two choices will pop up from the bottom. You can “take photo” or “choose photo”. If you tap on “take photo”, the camera will open. We already have Homer’s picture in our camera roll, so we are going to select “choose photo”.
When you are happy with the photo, just tap “choose”.
That’s it. You’re done.
And this means, when your contacts call you, their photos will appear next to their name on your screen.
(This is also the way to add photos to contacts on your iPad. Contact > Edit > Add Photo)
