This blog post will help you upload a profile picture on YouTube and the youtube app.
Create a YouTube account
You can create a YouTube account by going to youtube.com and clicking on the “Create an Account” button at the top of the screen.
Go into your Google+ settings, scroll down until you see “YouTube”, then click on it in order to link your YouTube account with this one.
Find your profile picture in the app or on the website
In the app, you can find your profile picture by clicking on “Profile Picture” in the top right-hand corner.
On YouTube’s website, click on “Change Profile Pic” near the bottom of the screen next to your name.
Then upload a picture for your profile photo!
What are the dimensions of the profile picture?
The dimensions are set to 500×500 pixels. You can use a picture that is proportional (i.e., the height and width are not vastly different) or square if you want your profile pic to be a certain shape. The best way to find a picture that is proportional or square is by simply using Google Images.
You can upload an image in any of the following formats: JPG/JPEG; GIF; PNG (Portable Network Graphics); TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) and BMP (Bitmap).
The file size should not exceed 500 KB, but if it does then YouTube will resize it automatically before posting your profile photo on their website.
The dimensions of the profile pictures are set to be 100×100 pixels when uploading from your mobile device through the youtube app for Android devices and iPhones.
Requirements in order to change
Login to your account on YouTube and click the “Change profile pic” button next to your name in the top right corner of any page, then upload a photo from either computer or phone for use as your profile picture.
In order to change my profile picture on youtube:
I need an email address with Gmail or Youtube Mail (required)
A working browser window (preferably Chrome) updated with the latest security patches installed; Firefox is not available anymore at this time
An Internet connection that isn’t metered by ISP–no dial-up, please! You should also have cookies enabled so you can sync up both devices when using different browsers.
Creative ideas for profile picture on YouTube:
- You can use a photo of yourself or a loved one.
- A picture from your favorite movie, TV show, video game, painting–anything you want to express who you are!
- You can also use your company logo or a cool graphic.
- If you have a blog, you can use the website’s favicon as your profile pic.
- You might consider using just part of an image to represent yourself; for example, if you’re in front of a building that has some graffiti on it and wants people to know you enjoy street art, then take a picture with one hand up against the wall and only show your face from below so they get both aspects.
The best way is by uploading straight-ahead pictures instead of selfies!
Selection process: You should not upload more than three photos at once because quality will be decreased when YouTube makes all those images fit into 100×100 pixels without altering them first.
Uploading too many photos at once will count as spam and your profile photo uploads may be blocked.
The Dos and Don’ts
- Don’t upload pictures that are anything other than the dimensions or file size of 100×100 pixels.
- Do not use copyrighted material as your profile pic without permission from its original owner.
- You should also avoid using profanity and nudity, for both legal reasons and because it’s considered inappropriate by most people on YouTube! This includes uploading images with any type of drug usage in them.
If you have a serious issue to address then be sure to seek professional advice instead; there are many qualified counselors who can help if you’re feeling suicidal, anxious, depressed–anything at all really!
Otherwise please just try your best when posting photos on social media platforms like YouTube so others don’t feel bad about themselves because they see your profile picture.
The best type of profile pictures is those that are professional and don’t have any text, including words or numbers.
This will help you avoid looking like a spammer who is trying to get someone else’s attention by posting an image with their email address on it. Your profile picture should not be anything explicit either–avoid nudity at all costs!
