MadelineProto Example (now async for huge speed and parallelism!):

if (!file_exists('madeline.php')) {
    copy('', 'madeline.php');
include 'madeline.php';

$MadelineProto = new \danog\MadelineProto\API('session.madeline');

$UserProfilePhoto = $MadelineProto->photos->updateProfilePhoto(['id' => InputPhoto, ]);

Or, if you’re into Lua:

UserProfilePhoto = photos.updateProfilePhoto({id=InputPhoto, })
