How to make a profile picture

Choose a pic

Upload your photo to PicMonkey, or start with a template for a perfectly sized layout.

FAQs about making profile pictures

How do I make a good profile pic?

Create a profile pic that fits the platform you're publishing to. If it's a straight-laced business site, you'll want it—well, straight-laced. If it's a social network, take the opportunity to truly stand out. PicMonkey's profile pic templates offer an excellent design boost for very little effort. Finally, smile!

How do I make profile pictures that fit on Instagram or Facebook?

For Facebook, create your profile pic at 170  x 170 pixels. It gets cropped into a circle, so make sure no important visual information is around the edges. For Instagram, your image should be 320 x 320 — it'll also get cropped into a round shape.

Can you make a GIF your Facebook profile pic?

Yes, you can upload a GIF as your Facebook profile pic, but only from your iPhone or Android device. In Facebook, tap your picture, then tap "Change profile picture," then "Upload a new photo." Navigate to the place your photo is stored on your phone and tap "Choose."
