When I add comments to a Google doc, there's a place-holder for my picture, but my actual picture does not show up. For other commenters, their picture does show up.

I have a picture set in my Google profile, and that picture appears in the top-right hand corner of my screen when I'm editing a doc. Why doesn't my picture show up in the comments box?

Still doesn't work for me either. It might be because of my privacy setting on my Google+ account though. I've wondered the same thing about Google Maps. It doesn't work there either. It works just fine in Google Groups, with the little pop-up profile selection when you join (for each group). – Ellie Kesselman Oct 10 '12 at 4:51

Try to re-upload the picture from your Google+ account and check again.
