  • Hi, I made your question more generic as Yosemite questions will more often than not get deleted. And the answer you are looking for is most likely in the question I linked above. Just tested on Mavericks. I doubt Yosemite will be different. – Alistair McMillan Sep 27 '14 at 22:46
  • I tired the approach mentioned earlier but got some error related to dscl. the following worked dscl . -read /Users/<Short Name> JPEGPhoto | tail -1 | xxd -r -p > /Users/<Short Name>/Desktop/Profile-Image.jpg – redoc Sep 27 '14 at 23:04
  • Isn't that the same command from the question I linked above? – Alistair McMillan Sep 27 '14 at 23:09
