Set up your card

Address Book automatically creates an address card for you using information you supplied when you first set up your computer. You can add more information to your card.

  1. Select your card.

    Add to it any information you want to include, such as your email addresses, phone numbers, birthday, and so on. You can customize your card by adding a picture; the picture is used for your account and is visible to other users of your computer.

    Show pictures on cards

  2. Choose Card > Make This My Card.

    Other applications on your computer, such as iCal, iChat, and Mail, use information from your “me” card. You can keep some or all of the information on your card private and exclude it when you send your card to contacts.

    Share your card

To quickly display your card at any time, choose Card > “Go to My Card.”

If you have already set a “me” card and try to create a second one (perhaps for a different account), the first “me” card will be unset and the second one will become your “me” card.
