Got an Apple, Mac, or iOS tech question? We've got the answer. In this week's Ask, we let you know how to create a custom picture for your OS X profile, as well as how to update your pic in Messages.

Question

When I first set up OS X, I selected one of the profile pictures provided by the setup wizard, but now I would like to switch to a custom photo. If I change this photo, will it also change my photo inside of the Messages application?

Answer

Whether you have a photo that is already on your computer, wish to select one of those included with OS X, or want to take a new picture, you can do so in System Preferences.

To change your picture, perform these steps:

1. Open Apple menu > System Preferences.

2. Open the Users & Groups preference pane.

3. Select your account from the list on the left.

4. Click the “Password” tab to the right.

5. Click the user profile photo that is currently set.

In the popover dialog that appears, you can choose from the many pictures provided with OS X in the “Default” category, which are perfectly sized to fit the allocated space.

To use a custom picture, drag and drop it from the Finder onto the slot that contains your current picture. Creating a new picture is also easy as pie. choose “Camera” on the left to see the view from your Mac’s camera and take a photo of yourself.


It’s easy to change your profile picture in System Preferences.

 

This will not change your photo in Messages, however. To change that, you’ll need to do the following:

1. Open Messages and select Window > Buddies.

2. In the list that appears, select your profile photo, and then select “Recents.”

3. Select the photo that you applied to your account in System Preferences, and then click “Done.”

FlowVella

Our Friday Morning Report has some very good news for iPhone 6 shoppers in need of a last-minute holiday gift, as shipping estimates for all but the 128GB models finally improve to a single business day. We're also spreading joy for fans of the Flowboard presentation software, and cord-cutters with an Apple TV can now watch full episodes of ABC shows without a cable subscription. Wrap up the work week on a high note by clicking ahead!

Apple Now Ships Most iPhone 6 Models in 1 Business Day

If you're in the market for an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, the Apple Online Store may very well look like Santa Claus right now — assuming you want 16GB or 64GB, that is. According to MacRumors, shipment times for all carriers and colors have improved to just a single business day in the U.S. online store, with the larger capacity 128GB model the only one still languishing behind with a three-to-five day shipping estimate.

Americans aren't the only ones to enjoy the shorter wait times, with Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Thailand, Philippines, and other countries also showing a big improvement over estimates from earlier this month. Sadly, that won't help your decision as to which model to buy, but it will get your choice in your hands that much sooner.

Flowboard Rebrands as FlowVella, Debuts Mac Presentation App

The folks at Flowboard announced a complete rebranding Thursday, with the company's flagship presentation software now known as FlowVella. The change has been coordinated alongside the launch of FlowVella for Mac at the discounted price of just $4.99 (down from $19.99), which adds new presenter notes with display, auto play/advance features, PowerPoint import, Retina Display support, and the ability to import PSD files as flattened images.

A free iPad edition of FlowVella also benefits from the rebranding, and both versions have the ability to upgrade to monthly or annual Premium subscriptions, which now accommodate larger file sizes, adds additional templates and a password protection option, and the ability to track presentation views; FlowVella Education for iPad is also available is also available as a paid option for teachers and students. Existing customers only need to download the rebranded apps and log in to get started.

Last but not least, FlowVella is introducing a new product called iPad App Builder, which allows presentations to be transformed into standalone iPad apps, complete with custom branding. FlowVella's first customer for this new service is Seattle's EMP Museum, which has used the product to launch two new exhibits.

Apple TV WATCH ABC Channel Offers Cable-Free Full Episodes

ABC announced that Apple TV owners are being treated to the sam special benefit already enjoyed by iOS users: The ability to watch full episodes of the network's television shows from the WATCH ABC channel without the need to sign in with a cable or satellite subscription.

Sure, it's a baby step closer to the cord-cutting many of us dream of, and you'll still need to link up with your provider in order to watch live TV streams, but chances are many readers will be unaffected by that requirement anyway, given that live video is only available in Chicago, Fresno, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham, and San Francisco.
