A Smart Way to Update Your Phone Contacts Pictures

It’s Christmas season and this post is starting to trend already. Seeing that this Christmas card photos as phone contacts was originally written in 2011 – I figured it was time for an update!

In the last 9 years, phones are now smart phones. A lot has changed including phone contacts. Most modern smartphones in 2020 now allow you to set your phone contacts preferred photo.

Christmas Card Photos as Phone Contacts

This tip for using Christmas card photos as phone contacts is still applicable though! Maybe you want a photo of your friend or loved one’s family rather than a headshot or worse, an emoticon!

So this may or may not be applicable to you in 2020 – but it really is a great idea!

Update Phone Contact Photos with Christmas Card Photos

How’s this for an AH HA idea. Complete your smart phone contact list with photos of your friends from their Christmas cards.

If you are a visual like myself, the smart phone contact list could be your best friend. Whenever I see my friend Mel’s name pop into my iPhone – while we’ve been friends for years, my head automatically does a search of my memory for a photo in my mental Rolodex.

All because I don’t have a photo. With a photo, you see a lovely photo of your friend who is calling.

Christmas Card Photos are People’s Faves

Who sends photos of themselves that they think are bad? Rather than finding all of your friends to take a photo – why not just use photo Christmas cards that are mailed to you?

Yes, some phones update photos automatically from applications such as Facebook – but if you are friends with me, that means you have a photo of my kid.

Before you know it, your nice friends who send you photo Christmas cards will now appear on your phone when they call.
