how to view profile image with access_token

Hi all, 


How can I view my profile image (and any other UI resources) with my access_token ?


I only managed to view the image with a sid like:





Going to need a little more information about your circumstances to give you a better answer.


You can find your profile pic from running a SOQL query on the User.FullPhotoUrl using the userID from UserInfo.getUserId().


If all you have is a session id, then maybe the Chatter REST API will have a way to get you the picture.


Thanks. I already came up with a solution:


The REST API can give you the image stream with an ajax call only if you pass the access_token in the headers.

Then you can convert the stream to base64 and give the result to the image src attribute using 'Data URI schema'.
