You can set the image to display on the left side of your bio (with your bio text to the right) or on the right (with your bio text on the left). You can also upload multiple biopics and select for a random biopic to display on each page load. Optionally, you can choose to not display a biopic.

Note that when you are displaying a biopic, the widgetized area of your bio is compressed to fit into whatever area of your bio remains. The biopic does not get placed in one of the bio widget columns.
