Change the Profile Picture of a Mac User Account [How-to]

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.
