Changing User Account Picture

Respect Yourself / Protect Yourself

These are basic to being a good digital citizen. When you are asked for a profile picture online it is best to use an avatar, a picture that represents you, NOT an actual photo of yourself.

Privacy is important, it helps to protect you online.

To save a picture to your Google Drive follow these steps
  1. Open Chrome 
  2. Search and select for picture
  3. Hold down Alt button and click on picture
  4. Select save image as
  5. Select Google Drive in the left hand panel
  6. Rename but DO NOT take off  the extension(.jpg)  this tells the computer what type of file it is
  7. Save

To change your avatar on your account you need to follow these steps on the Chromebook
  1. Sign in to the Chromebook
  2. Click on your account picture on the lower right hand of the screen, this is called the status area
  3. Click on settings
  4. Scroll down until you see your picture under USER
  5. Click on this picture and it brings up a Change picture window
  6. Click on the grey folder
  7. Select Google Drive from the left hand panel
  8. Select the image you saved here and click open 
All done
