Change a user’s login picture on Mac
You can change the picture that appears next to your user name or another user’s name in the login window on your Mac. You can choose a photo from your photo library, take a new photo using the camera on your Mac, choose a Memoji or emoji, use initials in a monogram and more. Your user login picture is also displayed as your Apple ID picture and as your My Card in Contacts.
On your Mac, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, then click Users & Groups .
If the lock at the bottom left is locked , click it to unlock the preference pane.
Select the user account on the left.
You can’t select an account for a user that’s currently logged in (indicated by a checkmark on the user’s picture). The user must log in and change their picture or log out so you can change it.
Click the user’s picture on the right, then do any of the following:
Select a Memoji: Click Memoji, then click the Add button to select and compose a facial image. Or select one of the displayed Memoji, then select a pose and style you like.
Select an emoji: Click Emoji, then click the Add button to select an image from the emoji library. Or select one of the displayed emoji and select a style.
Select a monogram: Click Monogram, select a background colour, then enter initials.
Take a picture using your Mac camera: Click Camera. Set up your shot, then click the Camera button. You can retake the photo as many times as you need to.
Select a photo from your Photos library: Click Photos. To see photos from a specific album, click the arrow next to Photos in the sidebar, click the album you want, then select a photo.
Tip: To quickly replace the current Apple ID picture with an image on your desktop, just drag the image from the Finder onto the current picture.
Select a suggested image: Click Suggestions, then select a picture.
After you select an image, you can adjust its look. Do any of the following:
