2409028 - People profile : Portrait/Square photo option not working


Image/Data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems,sample data or demo systems.Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

  • Photo won't change after selecting either portrait or square option when you edit your Employee Profile Photo in People Profile.
  • The photo appears in portrait format in preview in People Profile Page. But once saved as a .pdf file, appears as square.



  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Profile
  • People Profile 3
  • Edit Photo

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to People Profile Page
  2. Select Header --> Edit Profile Picture
  3. Select Square or Portrait, it appears that changes aren't saved.

To Save or Print as a .PDF

  1. Take Action->Print/PDF->Preview->Save as PDF.
  2. Check the photo in saved PDF




  • The pdf generator doesn't support rounded photo.


  • This is expected behavior. The Square/Portrait is developed for preview but not for printing and/or saving as a .pdf
