Ah I see. So you want to offer a set of images and some way of connecting with a user's facebook account and letting them set their profile pic to one of your images all through your site?

That does sound good :) Not done it myself but facebook offers a fair few integration APIs. Try these; http://developers.facebook.com.iproxy.saverpigeeks.com//docs/guides/web and see if any suit what you need.

I wouldn't know where to start Leo. Someone else might do though. Come back with the solution when you have it done because I'd like to know how it works :)

Your plan is to find a solution though so I thought that, when you do, you cold post it back here to help others. That's kinda how a forum works ;)

Thanks Leo. I know that Facebook/Twitter cross-overs are in fashion at the moment and it would be good to know how. If I find a need for it myself and work it out I'll let you know as well :)

There's no current way in the FB API to change the profile picture.
Twitter has it, FB not.

how do the "share on facebook" links work? perhaps that could do the trick

It's still Facebook, but it does a complete different thing.

You can do a lot through the FB API, but you cannot currently have a user change their profile pic.
