In this article, we’ll go over how to add or change a profile picture to your Gmail account by using multiple options.
Change the Profile Picture in Your Gmail Account
When you sign up for the first time for a Gmail account, you won’t have any profile pictures. Instead, you’ll see the first initials of your name set as the profile picture.
Google allows you to set a profile picture of your choice for your Gmail account. The image will show up when someone sees your name in their email inbox or chat list. You can also use the same picture on your Youtube channel if you have one.
Let’s see how to change the profile picture.
Login to your Gmail account, click the top right side of your Gmail account, and then click the camera icon as shown in the below image.
Click Add profile photo.
There are three options to choose a profile picture: from illustrations, Google Photos, or from your computer.
You can choose or search for any illustrative picture to set as your Gmail account profile photo.
You can choose any of your favorite photos that you have uploaded to Google Photos.
The third option lets you upload a picture from your computer or take a picture of yourself and upload it as a Gmail account profile picture.
Set your picture correctly after cropping and rotating, then click Save as profile picture.
