Retrieving thumbnail for user profile widget instead of full-size image?

When the image is rendered, the URL is /images/default-source/Temp/2013-10-04-18-07-12.jpg?sfvrsn=I've noticed that the default image that is pulled into the Profile widget for the current user is the full-size (i.e., original) image instead of a scaled down-version. I know a thumbnail version exists, but I'm not sure how to define this in the template. I'm using the "Article-like" template on version 6.1. 

For example, when the image is rendered, the URL is:

/images/default-source/Temp/2013-10-04-18-07-12.jpg?sfvrsn=1

But the thumbnail version of this has a URL of 

/images/default-source/Temp/2013-10-04-18-07-12.tmb-.jpg?sfvrsn=1

How can I get the <sf:ImageField /> control to use the thumbnail instead of the full-size? Thanks.

I've used the below on Image lists to get the thumbnail.  Not sure if it will work for you but worth a try.
<sf:ImageAssetsField runat="server" DataFieldName="MainImage" IsThumbnail="True" />

Tried that and it did not work.

Hello Ryan,

I am afraid this functionality cannot be easily achieved with this template. If you use the Auto Generated fields template you can see the image is sized to a thumbnail. If you insist on having the Article-like one you need to add a custom field to the user's profile and assign it to be a thumbnail. For more information on how to do that click here.
