Adding contact image in Sitecore 9 is pretty straight forward, you might come across the requirement where you have to update the contact profile image in xProfile based on contact social profile or custom image URL.

xProfile-Image-1.pngThe code below can be used to set the profile image using Avatar Facet.


var trackerIdentifier = new
IdentifiedContactRfence("xDB.Tracker",Sitecore.Analytics.Tracker.Current.Contact.ContactId.ToString("N"));

using (XConnectClient client =
Sitecore.XConnect.Client.Configuration.SitecoreXConnectClientConfiguration.GetClient())

{
var contact=
client.Get<Sitecore.XConnect.Contact>
(trackerIdentifierSitecore.XConnect.ContactExpandOptions());

if (contact != null)
{
var profileImageUrl = "profile URL comes here";
var objWebClient = new
System.Net.WebClient();
byte[] profileImageBytes =
objWebClient.DownloadData(profileImageUrl);
string mimeType= "image/jpeg";
client.SetFacet<Avatar>(contact,
Avatar.DefaultFacetKey, new Avatar(mimeType, profileImageBytes)
{
MimeType= mimeType,
Picture= profileImageBytes
});
client.Submit():
}
}

Hope this helps!

Happy learning!
