Choose your own profile photo, and then choose Another user.
Select the user you want to update, and then choose OK.

The icon library on Netflix used to be the only option for sprucing up profile pictures, but that all has changed thanks to a free Chrome extension. In a few clicks, users can upload a photo to their account that better represents their interests and passions.
This extension initially caused a buzz on social media after users showed off their aesthetic Netflix profiles on TikTok. Soon after, others began swapping out ordinary profile pictures for something eye-catching, aesthetic, and compelling. In this article, I’ll show you how to make a custom profile picture for Netflix with Kapwing, then upload it to Netflix with a Chrome extension. Let’s get started!
- Upload and resize a picture
- Install the custom profile picture for Netflix extension
- Choose a profile
- Upload the profile picture
Step One: Upload and Resize a Picture
I recommend browsing TikTok if you need inspiration before jumping into the tutorial. Visit the app and type “Netflix profile pictures” in the search bar. Then, watch a few videos and jot down any ideas that catch your attention. I’ve seen users change each profile picture to a member of BTS and One Direction. Pinterest is another great source for anything involving aesthetic imagery.
In this tutorial, I’m using Kapwing, a browser-based video editor to resize my picture. You can use Kapwing for free on any iPhone, Android, PC, or tablet. Head over to Kapwing and click “start editing” to open the Studio. You can drag and drop your picture or GIF into the Studio or click “upload” to add it from your device.
Now it’s time to resize the picture so it doesn’t appear cut-off or distorted on Netflix. Change the aspect ratio by clicking 1:1 under “output size” so your picture is a perfect square.
Kapwing has additional tools to explore to create the ideal picture. I frequently use filters to change the look and feel of a photo. Try it out for yourself by clicking “adjust,” then “filters” and select any option to see how it looks on your picture. You can change a filter’s intensity by switching to the adjust tab and changing the brightness, saturation and more.
Overlays are an easy way to spruce up a picture. You can search for overlays by clicking, “images” then “image search.” It helps to add “png” to your text so the background is transparent. You can always remove the background with the erase tool too. Add emoji’s, stylish text, shapes, GIFs, and more until you’re happy with the picture.
Click “export image” at the top right corner, then click “download” to save it to your device. You can remove the watermark first by creating a free account with Kapwing. If you sign up, you can edit and store your picture for up to two days.
Step Two: Install the Custom Profile Picture Extension
Let’s begin by visiting the Chrome web store and installing the custom profile picture for Netflix extension. Click “add to Chrome,” then “add extension” when prompted. I recommend pinning the extension to your toolbar so it’s easy to access. Otherwise, you can click the extension icon to view a list with all of your extensions.
Step Three: Choose a Profile
Head over to Netflix and login with your credentials then, hover over your profile picture in the top right corner of the screen. Click “manage profiles” to bring up a list of your profiles.
Step Four: Upload the Profile Picture
Click the extension on your toolbar then select a profile from the dropdown menu. From here, click “select image” to upload your profile picture. You can add a picture for up to five profiles and your picture can be no larger than 5MB.
You’ll see a preview of your image, then click “save.” Refresh your browser and you’ll see your new and improved profile picture! Since this is achieved with an extension, you’ll only see your custom profile picture on your computer.

Steam is the go-to destination for all things gaming. Video game enthusiasts unite from around the world to discuss, play, and create games with one another.
A compelling profile picture is a great first step towards building your own tight-knit community on Steam. Consider your avatar as an introduction. What message are you trying to send and who are you trying to connect with? I’ll cover avatar ideas and how to make a compelling steam profile picture you’re proud to use on the platform. Let’s get started.
- Open Kapwing
- Upload and resize a picture
- Edit the picture
- Upload profile picture to Steam
Step One: Open Kapwing
I’m making my Steam profile picture in Kapwing, a free browser-based video editor you can use on any iPhone, Android, PC, or tablet. Get started by visiting Kapwing on your device then click, “start editing.”
Step Two: Upload and Resize a Picture
Drag and drop a picture into the Studio or click “upload” to add a picture from your device. If you need ideas, click “images” then “image search” to browse photos from Google. I frequently use this tab when I need inspiration and it’s always helpful. Unfortunately, GIFs aren’t currently supported to use as your Steam PFP.
Feel free to take your time with this step. I know how difficult it can be to settle on a single picture. All I ask of you is to have fun and be authentic. This avatar is a golden opportunity to capture your personality and interests, so don’t be afraid to think outside the box!
Some users make their avatar coincide with their username. For example, if my username is Yoshi123, a Yoshi avatar will pull my entire profile together. Others, stick with popular avatar ideas such as memes, anime icons, and iconic TV show characters. Below are a few cool steam avatars I found if you need inspiration.
The optimal size to create a square Steam profile picture is 184 x 184 pixels. With this in mind, it’s time to resize the background so the picture isn’t blurry or distorted after uploading it. Click “custom” under “output size” and change the width and height to 184 x 184 pixels. You can lock the proportions to maintain the aspect ratio even if you upload another picture.
Step Three: Edit the Picture
There are so many ways you can customize your picture with Kapwing. You can add text to insert a caption or your name, overlay pictures, add a filter, and more. The erase tool is handy if you want to remove the background from your picture. In this example, I made the background purple to contrast with the green so Yoshi is front and center.
Watermelons are a staple for green Yoshi so I threw in some watermelon emojis to complete my avatar. If you want to add emojis to your picture, click “image” then “emoji” on the right side of the window. Here’s the final look at my Steam PFP!
When you’re finished, click “export image” in the top right corner, then click “download” to save it to your device. To remove the watermark first, create a free account with Kapwing by signing in with Facebook or Google.
Step Four: Upload Profile Picture to Steam
Now it’s time to add the picture to Steam. Let’s get started by logging into Steam, then click your username located at the top or right side of the screen. From the dropdown menu, click “view profile.”
Click “edit profile” on the right side of the screen, then click “avatar.” From here, click “upload your avatar” and your custom profile picture will appear. If you’re happy with the results, click “save” and you’re finished!
If you want to add a little more flair to your picture and have points to spare, purchase an avatar frame. The price is generally 500 or 2000 points and you can gain points by making purchases on Steam. Watch the quick video below to get a glimpse of the animated frames Steam has to offer.

If you want to customize your Facebook profile picture, frames have been on the rise to celebrate important events, share the support of a cause, or share a favorite holiday. Over this past year, people have been showing their support for graduating classes, healthcare workers, social justice issues, and more with profile picture frames. You can choose from a variety of frames within the Facebook app, such as “Happy Birthday”, “Pride”, or “Quaranteam” but you can also submit your own custom frame for you and your friends to use!
In this tutorial, I’ll go over how to create your own custom profile picture frame to accessing pre-made frames on Facebook. Here are the steps:
- Open Kapwing
- Create a Transparent Canvas
- Customize Your Frame with Text, Images, and Emojis
- Export and Upload your Custom Frame to Facebook
- How to Access Pre-made Profile Picture Frames
Step One: Open Kapwing
Head over to https://www.kapwing.com/ where you can create and edit your custom profile picture frame. Once you are in Kapwing, select Get started, then choose Start with a blank canvas.
Step Two: Create a Transparent Canvas
When you enter the Kapwing Studio, the canvas size will be set to 1:1 which is the recommended size for a Facebook profile picture. Next, scroll down to Background Color in the right-hand panel and make the background transparent by selecting No Color, which has white and grey squares and a red line going through it.
How to change your background to transparent
Step Three: Customize Your Frame with Text, Images, and Emojis
Now it’s time to customize your frame. Before you get started, make sure that your design will fit within the profile picture safe area and not the invisible area which is greyed out. You can create a circle as a guideline on your transparent canvas and customize within the circle area and then remove it when you’re finished.
Kapwing has many popular tools such as text, images, and elements. I recommend using transparent icons and images since we will be exporting the entire image as a png. You could use transparent png images in your picture frame by putting “png” or “transparent” at the end of your search keyword.
Make sure the transparent images are actually transparent and don’t include a background
Once you have found some images that you’d like to use, resize them so that they are placed within the safe areas. Next, we’re going to add some text to our photo. On the right-hand side panel, there are a few text options that you can use. 1) Choose a font style, 2) Bold, italicize, or underline the text, 3) Change the text color, and 4) Choose a background color. When you’re finished customizing the Facebook profile picture frame, delete the circle on the canvas if you created one.
Use the text tools on the right-hand side panel to edit your text
Step Four: Export and Upload Your Custom Frame to Facebook
Click on Export Image in the top right corner and wait to be taken to the download page. On the download page, you should be able to preview your image and it should be transparent, meaning there should be no background. If your image is not transparent, click Edit and then change the background color to No Color / Transparent. Select Download and your image will be saved to your device.
Final profile picture frame look without the circle guideline Preview the image before downloading to make sure it is transparent
Next, we’re going to upload the frame to Facebook. Go to https://developers.facebook.com/products/frame-studio/ and select Create a frame. On the next screen, you will be able to upload your frame. Make sure you adjust the size and it looks correct in the preview.
Click Next and enter a few details about your picture frame such as the name, and some optional details such as location, schedule, and keywords. After including all of your details, click Publish. Now you can access your picture frame by going to your profile picture and selecting the camera button, then selecting the Frames tab. In the left-hand side panel search for your frame – mine is called “Hello Summer” – then scroll until you find your frame. Choose the frame and select Use as a profile picture.
Step Five: How to Access Pre-made Profile Picture Frames
To access a pre-made Facebook profile picture frame, go to your profile picture and select the camera button, then select the Frames tab. In the frames tab, you can search for frames or select one of the suggested frames. Select one that you like and click Use as a profile picture.
