Changing your Xbox One gamerpic

Every profile gets a gamerpic, the picture shown next to your gamertag. You can change it whenever the mood strikes. Or, upload a custom image of your own.

To change your gamerpic:

  1. Press the Xbox button  on your controller to open the guide.
  2. Select Sign in, choose your profile, then select My profile.
  3. Select Customize profile > Change gamerpic.
  4. Choose a gamerpic.

Make your avatar your gamerpic

To take a picture with your avatar:

  1. Press the Xbox button  on your controller to open the guide.
  2. Select Sign in, choose your profile, then select My profile.
  3. Select Customize profile > Edit avatar.
  4. Press the Menu button  on your controller and select Take a photo.
  5. Switch between the Animations and Background tabs to select the pose you want.
  6. Position your avatar on your chosen background.
  7. Select the View button  on your controller to take a picture of your avatar.
  8. Select Save as gamerpic.

Note
You can also select Email picture to email the gamerpic to your Microsoft account.

Upload a custom image

Video: Upload your own gamerpic.

Note This video is available in English only.

To upload a custom image, connect a USB device with a JPG or PNG image on it. You can also grab an image from OneDrive (available in the Microsoft Store under Apps) if you have it installed on your console.

Note
Custom images are only available for adult Microsoft accounts.

  1. Press the Xbox button  on your controller to open the guide.
  2. Select Sign in, choose your profile, then select My profile.
  3. Select Customize profile > Change gamerpic. (You’ll need to select Switch to gamerpic first if you’re replacing your avatar with a custom image.)
  4. Select Upload a custom image and choose one to use from your connected device or OneDrive.
  5. Select Upload.

It might take a little while for your custom picture to appear while we verify it’s OK. (If it’s not, it’ll be reverted to the last gamerpic or avatar you were using.)
