How to Delete Photos

To delete a photo or an uploaded document (Form 990, audited financial statement, etc.) from your profile that you've already uploaded, select the Delete link to the far right of the image. Sometimes, given various browser and computer settings, you might not see that link displayed. Here's how to fix that:

In other words, scroll to the bottom of the photos section, then drag over to the right. Scroll back up and the Delete links should now appear.
