  4. Save the profile.
function save_image_profile2($profile_id, $image_id){
	// Load the profile object
	$profile = profile2_load($profile_id);

	// Image Field
	$field = 'field_profile_pictire';

	// Load the file
	$val = array();

	$file = file_load($image_id); // Load by fid
	// $file = reset(entity_uuid_load('file', ['uuid' => $image_id])); // Load by uuid
	if (!$file) {
		return 'error';
	$img_info = image_get_info(drupal_realpath($file->uri));

	// Set the required attributes of the field
	$val['und'][0]['fid'] = $file->fid;
	$val['und'][0]['width'] = $img_info['width'];
	$val['und'][0]['height'] = $img_info['height'];
