so I'm assuming the database format varies from the new version.
I doubt that. If there was a database change the update would upgrade the database, and in this case the database from 7.2.1 through to 7.2.3 hasn't changed. You can confirm this by checking the version number in [/conf/applicatio.php] in each of the those versions.
For a list I have made, see https://rogerlovejoy.net/blog/b2evo/database-versions
I don't use the profile photo as you do but will try it out and see what I come up with.
When you say you 'reinstalled' do you mean a second time for 7.2.3 or was that the first time and not an automatic upgrade?
