I was thinking profil as a side view LOL .

This is an odd ambiguous phrase in any language

Photo de profil = side profile photo (WordReference)

I wrote "your profile photograph" and was marked wrong. Am I missing a key point about why the more formal term photograph is wrong in favor of the informal term photo? Profile views normally appear in documents or medical records in my own experience.

I mean it should be right in a literal sense. But contextually, if we're talking about social media accounts, I've heard none call it a "profile photograph"

Puzzled why "Your photo in profile is strange" is marked wrong.
