Ditto. It's infuriating. Anyone have any suggestions?

Same problem here - I have changed the picture multiple times and it keeps reverting back to my company logo (Not sure how it even picked the logo as I haven't used the logo in my profile before). Same for my wife's profile

Ill take a shot at this. I was having the same problem so, if you are using icloud, login to icloud, at the upper
right hand corner select your preference and delete your pic. go back to your computer prefence select your new pic log out then back in. Worked for me.

Try changing the (or adding a) photo to yourself in Contacts. That did it for me. I had no photo there and it kept changing back to the photo I took with the build in camera when I first got my MBP. Added my profile pic there and itautomatically changed it. Even diditon my iPad and iCloud must have changed it.

I got this from another forum and it worked for me:
1. Go into Address Book > Card > Go to My Card
2. Edit > Copy
3. Edit > Delete
4. Edit > Paste
5. Open System Preferences > Users & Groups, select your Admin user and pick the photo you want
6. Go back to Address Book, click Card > Make This My Card

This worked! Thank you!!
This was driving me crazy. It kept changing back to the picture I have as another account on the computer. I decided to look into it when I changed the picture of my other account and this one kept reverting back to the old picture (that is no longer being used).

I posted this on another (similar) question. The following may be relevant to you if this hasnt already solved your problem:
I've had the same problem for SO long. I've looked here before, and I've changed the address book and account pictures and my iCloud account picture and address book in iCloud and in my phone. EVERYTHING.
Then today I realised that my problem was being caused by a little setting I'd enabled in the Facebook for iPhone app. Basically, you can set the app (through friends, then this icon in the top right of an arrow) to sync your contacts' photos with those from Facebook so that you have up to date pictures of them.
In those options, there's an option to 'replace existing photos' of contacts. It was turned on. BAD IDEA.
Since my iCloud account has the same name as my Facebook account, the Facebook app was replacing my contact card info on my iPhone to my Facebook photo (which had been my account photo for a short while). Of course, this was syncing to my iCloud account and finally to my computer, changing my account picture to my Facebook photo. Changing it back on iCloud etc was reverted to the Facebook photo every time that I opened the Facebook app, which caused it to sync the contacts' photos on my phone with the friends list ones.
That is why it is really variable how often the picture changes back, because it depends how long it's been since you last opened the Facebook app on your iPhone! Finally, I am SO GLAD that I managed to figure out the root of the problem. Turning off that 'replace existing photos' problem has fixed everything.
I hope that this solves all of you guys' problems too!
