How to Set Profile Picture in Zoom
When it comes to video conferencing, Zoom is one of the best choices on the market. It doesn’t matter if you’re using it from home or an office setting, it will connect the members of your team in no time.
But you don’t have to use the video feature if there’s no need. You can just set up a profile picture and use the audio-only option.
Adding a profile photo is more personal than having just your name displayed during a meeting. In this article, we’re going to show you how to change your profile picture and some other useful customization options.
Adding Zoom Profile Picture
One of the truly great things about Zoom is that you can personalize your Profile in many ways. To change the settings, you’ll need to access your Profile via the Zoom web portal. So, if you have the perfect profile picture ready, here’s what you need to do:
- Log into your Zoom account and select “Profile”.
- At the top left corner, you’ll see the option to change your profile picture. Select “Change”.
- Upload the picture you want and adjust it to fit well.
You can refresh your page and check your profile picture. If you’re not happy with how it looks, just repeat the process. Or, if you change your mind about having a Zoom profile photo, just select “Delete”.
Also, keep in mind that your picture shouldn’t exceed 2MB in size and should be one of the following formats: PNG, JPG, or GIF.
On the same Profile page, you can edit other personal information as well. Next to your profile picture is your display name. You can select “edit” in the right top corner of the screen and change it. You can also edit your email address, and change your Zoom user type.
Adding Picture During the Call
Next time you’re on a Zoom video call and decide to turn off your camera, other participants will see your profile picture. But you can also add a profile picture during your Zoom video call.
Just right-click on the video preview and select “Edit Profile Picture”. When you stop the video, you’ll be able to see your picture.
Adding Picture to Your Google Account
There are four ways you can log in to your Zoom account. You can use your work email, Facebook, a Single Sign-on, or use your Google account. In the case of the latter, Zoom will automatically load your Google or Gmail Profile picture as a Zoom profile picture.
In case your Google profile is without an image, you can add it there first, and then log into Zoom. That way, you’ll have the same picture in both locations with just one upload. Here’s how you change your Google account picture:
- Sign in to your Gmail account.
- Select “Settings” on the top right corner of the screen.
- From the menu, select “My Picture” and then “About me”.
- Upload a profile photo of your choosing.
- When the image is uploaded, select “Done”.
You can change your Google profile picture from your mobile device as well. But keep in mind that regardless of where you make these changes, you’ll have to wait a little bit until they apply. But once they do, the same image will appear in all Google products, wherever you sign in with your account.
Changing the Default Zoom Language
In terms of personalization, choosing the Zoom display language is right there with setting a profile picture. English is the default language on Zoom, but it’s not the only one available. On your profile page, you can also edit the language settings.
Currently, there are nine different languages to choose from. Apart from English, the list includes French, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, German, Portuguese, and Korean. You can only change your language settings via the Zoom web portal or client.
If you want to change your language settings in Zoom iOS or Android device, you can do so by changing the operating system language first. Once you change the language settings in your mobile device, make sure to restart it. When you do, Zoom will automatically apply the new language settings.
Choosing the Right Profile Picture Is a Big Deal
How many profile pictures do you have across apps and platforms? Probably many. When you’re setting up your Zoom profile picture, you’ll perhaps wonder what kind of message it sends?
Is it professional enough, or is it too serious? Or maybe it’s best not to put much thought into it. When you find the right picture, just follow the steps above and add it to your Zoom profile. And then you can go on to change other personalization settings too.
