    When I place contacts as widgets on my homescreen i can't change their picture. After adding them i simply get white square when i click on it and in the options screen change picture it doesn't change it for me on home screen. But what i have noticed that when some on my contacts have stock picture from skype or google + then they show up on my home screen. But as far as changing and putting my own pictures for some reason they don't change. Can someone tell me what to do, is there a way to change contact pictures??

    Welcome to Android Central! I would think that it has to do with the contact pic from the source. So if you change the picture in your own Google Contacts page, then it will likely change in your widget. You might have to remove the widget and then place it again to get the change. Some Google Contact pics are dependent on that person actually setting their picture, so you might not have complete control over it.
