Are you trying to grab a more recent picture from Facebook, or to select a picture saved on your phone? – Matthew Read May 1 '11 at 18:40

On your phone go to people.(or phonebook) choose your contact card. Press menu button/edit. Press on your photo/Facebook. And it will be updated.

This doesn't work on my Gingerbread Droid X. Editing a contact and clicking the contact icon produces a menu with 3 options: "Use this photo" / "Remove icon" / "Change icon" I'm guessing it's a Gingerbread change. – Greg Oct 24 '11 at 17:45

I know this is an ancient question, but I just found out how to manage default contact photos in Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) and had to share.

For Linked Contacts, select the contact, but don't edit it. Press Menu → Mark as default. It's counter-intuitive, but this lets you set the default Name, Phone, Email, and Caller ID (aka. contact photo). Click Done and profit.
