Great to hear that solved the problem! took me quite a bit of time to track it down!
re: Is there a way to populate the URL for that photo globally, so we don’t have to browse and select the same photo over and over each time we have a new employee entry?
Yes, there is, see this QuickTip. It’s more of a CSS trick”ery” than a feature, but is works effectively.
Hope that helps!
If you have a moment, I would truly appreciate a review as they really do make a difference! many thanks in advance!
