Add a user's profile photo

As your organization's administrator, you can add photos of users to easily recognize the people in your organization. You can do this when you create the new user account or later. You can also change or remove a user's photo at any time.

Where a user's photo appears

A user's photo shows up whenever you view the user in the Admin console, when the user communicates or shares content, and when another user hovers over their name in their inbox, Contacts, or Hangouts Chat list. 

Photo requirements

A user's photo can be a JPG, JPEG, or PNG file of up to 5 MB. Photos are scaled automatically, so they can be any dimensions.

To add, change, or remove a user's photo

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console Home page, go to Users.
  3. In the Users list, find the user. If you need help, see Find a user account.

More details about a user’s profile photo

The photo on a user’s My account page, at myaccount.google.com, shows up in Google products that use this information from the user's Google Account. If users upload different profile photos in certain Google products, they might continue to see them there.
