Google profile images, FAIL- Worthy of distribution March 5, 2011

Most folks probably don’t know that google has updated the user profile pages look’n’feel. Including some changes to profile pictures… Most of us feel somewhat comfortable uploading an image and cropping it using the interface provided to us from sites (Granted,  you get what you ask for if you upload anything with a naughty factor) – but this is just plain stupidity, and it’s straight from our techlord google.

Basically the uploaded files that are “Cropped” are still easily visible on a google profile page, even when uploaded to a private album, and cropped to be made public. Fail.
