How to Change Your YouTube Profile Picture Using a Smartphone or Tablet:
Assuming that you don’t have a desktop or laptop computer readily to hand, you can change your YouTube profile picture using your Smartphone or tablet. Regardless of whether you use iOS or
Android, here’s what you do if you have the YouTube app downloaded on your device:
Step1: Open the YouTube app
Step2: Sign in to your YouTube account
Step3: Tap your profile picture in the top-right corner of the page
Step4: Tap My channel
Step5: Tap the Settings cogwheel icon
Step6: Tap your profile picture
Step7: Tap either Take a photo or Choose from your photos
Step8: Either take a photo or pick a photo saved to your device, and then tap Use Photo
You should then see a message at the bottom of the screen, which reads, “Profile photo updated successfully.”
Change Your Profile Picture on YouTube in a Browser:
Your YouTube profile picture comes from your Google+ profile. You can therefore change it in one of two ways: by logging into YouTube and changing it from there, or by going directly to your Google+ account.
For desktop and laptop users (Windows and Mac), here’s how to change it via YouTube:
Step1: Go to youtube.com in a computer’s browser
Step2: Click your YouTube profile picture, in the top-right corner of the screen
Step3: Click My channel
Step4: Click your profile picture
Step5: Click EDIT
Step6: Pick the image you’d like to use as your profile picture, or select Upload photo to choose a photo saved to your computer
This changes your YouTube profile picture, which is also your Google+ picture. However, you should bear in mind that it may take anything from several minutes to several hours for the change to register across all relevant accounts (e.g. it’s also your picture for Gmail and Google Hangouts).
One thing some users might notice is that, even after changing their Google profile picture like this, their YouTube profile picture might stubbornly remain the same. While this issue doesn’t actually affect anyone else who comes across your YouTube profile, it can be frustrating to keep seeing your old picture when you log back into the video-sharing site. Fortunately, you can solve this issue by clearing your browser’s cache.
How to Change Your YouTube Profile Picture Using Google:
Alternatively, you can head straight to your Google+ account and change your YouTube My Channel picture directly. Here’s how to do it:
Step1: Go to plus.google.com
Step2: Click Profile (from the menu running down the left-hand side of the screen)
Step3: Click EDIT PROFILE
Step4: Click your profile picture
Step5: Pick the image you’d like to use as your profile picture, or select Upload photo to choose a photo saved to your computer
This will change your Google+ profile picture, and by extension it will also change your YouTube My Channel image.
