How to Change Your Facebook Profile Picture
Your Facebook Profile photo is a small photo that sticks with you all around Facebook, appearing wherever you comment or post something. For example, your friends may see your status post in their News Feeds, accompanied by your name and Profile photo. Most people use some variation on a headshot for their profile photos. To change your profile photo, follow these steps:
Hover over your existing Profile photo.
The Edit Profile Picture button appears.
Click the Edit Profile Picture button.
This opens the Profile Picture menu, which has five options: Choose from Photos, Take Photo (only for people with a webcam), Upload Photo, Edit Thumbnail, and Remove.
To choose from the photos of you on Facebook, click Choose from Photos.
This opens the Choose from Photos window, which by default shows you all the photos in which you are tagged in Facebook. Page through these photos by clicking the arrows in the bottom-right corner. You can also get to the photos you’ve added to Facebook by clicking View Albums in the upper-right corner.
Select the photo you’d like to be your profile photo by clicking it.
This brings you to the photo with a cropping interface.
Choose the portion of the photo you’d like to be your Profile photo using the cropping functions.
Move the transparent box around the photo by clicking and dragging it. Click and drag the corners of the transparent box to include more or less of the original photo.
Click Done Cropping when you’ve finished.
It’s a small link right beneath the photo. This brings you back to your timeline. The new profile photo should be visible.
To choose a Profile photo from your computer’s hard drive, follow Steps 1 and 2, and then
In the Edit Profile Picture menu, click Upload Photo.
This opens an interface for navigating your computer’s hard drive.
Locate and click the desired photo.
Click Open or Choose.
The photo is added and appears in place of your old profile photo.
