How to Change Profile Picture on Mac

Profile pictures rule the roost everywhere. You have profile pics not just on Facebook and Whatsapp but also on Mac and PCs. It’s mostly a cosmetic feature but it helps people personalize their Mac OS.

Your Mac lets you set a profile pic when you configure it for the first time. Many people usually pick one of the default pictures that OS X provides. Some skip this part (because it’s optional and you can change it later). If you’re new to Mac and want to set/change your profile picture, here’s how to do that.

But what if you want to select a picture from some other folder? If you want to set a totally custom picture as your profile picture, that can be done too. Almost as easily.
