If you have an iPod Touch you can quickly add a photo to any friend's contact information when you add him to the iPod or by editing it later on. It's simply a matter of tapping the "Add Photo" button while editing that contact. You can select any photo in the Photos app you want to use for that person. While the same process works for other iOS devices like the iPhone or iPad, you can't add photos to contacts in other models of the Apple iPod.


  1. 1
    Launch the Contacts app from the iPod Touch home screen. Select a contact and then tap the "Edit" button or add a new contact by tapping the "+" button. Tap "Add Photo" in the upper left of the screen.
  2. 2
    Select "Take Photo" if the person is nearby. The Camera app opens. Take a photo as you normally would. The photo appears on the screen. Pinch your fingers on the screen to zoom in on the photo if desired. You can also drag the photo with your finger to reposition it. Select "Use Photo" if you like the photo or "Retake" to take a new photo. The photo is added to the contact
  3. 3
    Select "Use Photo" instead to open the Photos app. Select a folder like the Camera Roll or My Photo Stream and then select the photo you want to use for the contact. Move and scale the photo on the screen if desired and then tap the "Choose" button to use the photo for your contact.


  • Besides taking pictures yourself, you can add photos to the camera roll from other apps like Facebook or pictures from the Web using Safari. Touch and hold a photo and select "Save Image" to add it to the iPod Touch Camera Roll.
