How to get there
Use the Patient Search box to access a patient's record.

You can include inactive patients in the search results by setting the Include inactive patients switch to On.
From the Patient menu, under General, clicktap Overview.
The patient's Overview page opens.
On a patient's Overview page, clicktap the patient picture on the left side of the Patient Information ribbon. (if the ribbon is not visible, clicktap the arrow button below the Patient Search field ).

The Patient Picture dialog box appears.
ClickTap the Change Patient Picture link.
The Patient Picture Library dialog box appears.
