Adding an Image to an Address Book
Sometimes I'm not able to change any of the custom images associated with contacts in the address book. If I quit and restart several times, it eventually works again.
Not all address books support custom images. If the default address book is set to something other than iCloud ie.
Exchangethe contact may not support custom images when created from another application like Messages. If you have a card that was created in an account other than iCloud, you can enable the ability to add custom images by also adding that card to iCloud.
To add a card from another account to iCloud: - Find the contact card you wish to move using the search dialog. I had similar issue now with Mavericks. Looked like it was just an issue with the one contact. Think I originally created it from mail item that I received.
Add a picture
Deleted the contact and created a new one from with contacts seemed to do trick. Something in the create from Mail seemed to lock the picture. No time to investigate just posting my solution in case it helps someone. I have that issue - pictures on Address Book That seems to handle everything just fine.
Easy solution: Select the bad contact in the list, copy it, paste it while it is still selected. For me, that replaced the bad contact with one in which the photo can be edited.
Having the same experience on El Capitan, some contacts I can edit the picture, other's I can't the copy and paste routine from Dave worked great. To add a bit more detail.
This appears to happen when the contact is stored on an account that doesn't support pictures, eg some exchange accounts. Open the Contacts application on your mac, search or click on the contact you can't edit, then copy and paste without deselecting the contact.
The picture can then me added to the icloud version of the card.

Lorin - Did you ever get an answer on how to put photos into the I cannot get it to work. Interesting that for older contact cards that either already have a photo, or ones created more than 4 or 5 years ago, double clicking on the blue-squared photo location pulls down the menu that allows photos to be added, changed or adjusted, and activates the "make this my card," "clear custom image" and "choose custom image" options under CARD.
For new cards just added, or those that are recent i.
