I use YouTube a lot and I have uploaded many videos. I think that I'm gaining popularity these days and I need to change my profile picture and make it unique than others. I have changed my profile picture on Google+ but my picture has not changed on YouTube. How can I fix this problem?
If you are referring to the profile picture and not the channel art, by default, your YouTube channel gets your Google account’s default profile picture. This means, whatever picture you use on your Google mail as profile picture, it will also appear as your profile picture on YouTube.
To change your YouTube profile picture, login to your YouTube account then click on your YouTube account icon on the upper right corner of the screen next to the bell icon to bring up the dropdown menu. Select “My channel.”
On the next screen, click “EDIT LAYOUT.” Move your mouse pointer over to your channel’s profile picture and click on the pencil icon and then “Edit.”
Now, follow the instructions to upload a new profile picture. Once the picture is uploaded, it will not appear immediately on your channel. The changes you made to your YouTube channel will take effect after a few minutes so don’t get surprised if you don’t see your new profile picture after doing this.
