"There was a problem saving the photo. Please try again."

Every time someone tries to change the image of the team we get this error, "There was a problem saving the photo. Please try again." We try and try and try and try and try and try again with NADA. I have asked for help, but get nothing. So does anyone else have this issue or just us? A solution?

This might be a problem of the image you are using....can you share some details about it? In general if you use an image of 256x256 or 512x512 it should work...I have suffered sometimes the problem you mention, and most of the times was due to a wrong image

You could also try changing the photo through the SharePoint page, site information and see if that takes hold.

Is this in an EDU tenant by chance?

Try changing the photo, and also make a change to the description. Simply removing/adding a period is enough. Curious to see if that works as I’m tracking a similar issue.

Following.  We have same issue.

@P_MooreWe have the same issue. The size or format of the picture doesn't change anything, as the default images aren't working either.

I succeeded changing the Teams avatar from my iPhone, but nothing works from the windows app.

Following this thread too.  Regardless of if it's the Windows or Mac App, changing my picture in Teams seems to be way more cumbersome that it ever should be.  The error message is also vague to the point of useless.

 

It's the little things like this (bad UX) that add up and leave a sour taste in a users mouth...

We've had success changing a letter or word in the Team description. For some reason the photo won't update unless something in the Team name or description is also altered. @P_Moore

Unfortunately, I have the same issue.

@Juan Carlos González Martín Only 256x256 .png worked for me. I tried 512x512 and 128x128 and both did not work. Using .jpg didn't work either.

What was the resolution? Thanks.

If you are using EWS Allow lists, we had to add SkypeSpaces/* to our list to allow profile pic to by synced.

@Mark HickmanI did not do any thing to solve the problem. After a month, I just checked and  realized that I could update the pics of teams.

I don't mean to "bash" and this is off-topic, but our folks have Slack and Teams and the Slack advocates aren't thrilled with Teams UX. I try to be unbiased, but it is pretty bad. I want Teams to be great. It really should be better than anything out there.

@ericis 256x256 png gives me the same issue...

Is it me only, who think that how in year 2020 we already should have informative error messages?

Teams upload picture error.png

If the resolution is wrong, it should be easy to say. If the format is wrong, should be easy to say. etc..

 

[edit]

For me it helps when I reduced the colors to 255.

Same problem

 

I triied using a picture which worked five minutes ago and it fails with the same dummy error message so the format or size do not matter as trying with a picture which already worked for an other teams fails ..
