In this post, we’ll cover how to update your profile picture in the most common business applications our customers use.
How do I change my Slack photo?
How to update Slack profile pictures depends on if you’re using a desktop, Android, or iOS device.
From your desktop, click your profile picture in the top right.
Select “Profile” from the menu and click “Edit profile.” Under “Profile photo,” click “Upload an Image.” Next, you’ll select a photo, so make sure you have the image you want to use saved to your computer and easily accessible. Once you’ve selected an image, adjust the framing, then click “Save” and then “Save Changes.”
From an iOS device, tap the “You” tab at the bottom of the screen, then tap “View profile.” Next, tap “Edit profile” and tap the profile picture in the top left. This is where you can take a photo or upload one from your device. Crop the photo if you need to, then tap “Choose” and “Save.”
The process is similar with an Android device, as well. Tap the “You” tab at the bottom of the screen.

Keep in Mind:
If your Slack email address is the same one used for your Gravatar account, your Slack profile picture will be your Gravatar. If you’d like to change your photo, simply upload a new one to Slack. Your profile picture should be a minimum of 512×512 pixels, but no larger than 1024×1024 pixels.
