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.
You can also let users:
Where a user's photo appears
- A user's photo shows up whenever you view the user in the Google Admin console, when the user communicates or shares content, and when another user hovers over their name in their inbox, Google Contacts, or Google Chat list.
- If an admin adds a photo to a user’s account, it will be visible only to users in your organization and external users they use Google Chat with. If a user changes their own profile photo, it will be visible to everyone, across Google products.
- If you turn off contact sharing for your organization's Google Workspace account, you and your users won’t see any users' profile photos. For more information, read Enable Contact Sharing.
Where a user's photo is stored
A user's profile photo is stored in their Album Archive, at get.google.com/albumarchive, whether it's added by an admin or the user.
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
- From the Admin console Home page, go to Users.
- In the Users list, find the user. If you need help, see Find a user account.
