How to Upload a Picture to Your Gamer Picture on Xbox 360


Microsoft lets you extensively customize your Xbox 360 profile. For instance, the console includes avatar creation tools, a "Bio" section and an option to add a gamer picture. The Xbox Live comes with dozens of preset gamer pictures but many console owners find the options sub-par. If you own a Kinect or Xbox 360 Vision Camera, snap a photo to upload as your gamer picture, giving you a one-of-a-kind shot for your gamertag.

  • Turn off the console. Connect your Kinect or Xbox Live Vision Camera to your console. The devices plug into an open USB port.

  • Turn on the console and wait for the dashboard to load. Go to the "My Xbox" section.

  • Scroll right to the section containing your gamer profile. Press "A."

  • Select "Profile" from the list of account management options.

  • Open the "Edit Gamer Profile" option.

  • Choose "Gamer Picture." A list of gamer picture customization options loads.

  • Select the "Take Personal Picture" option. A picture-taking screen loads allowing you to preview the shot.

  • Select the "Take Personal Picture" option. An image displays on the screen previewing the shot of your Kinect or Vision Camera.

  • Select the button donning a camera icon to take the photo.

  • Select the "Accept Picture" option to save the photo.

  • Choose "Change Personal Picture" to use the photo as your gamer picture.

Tips & Warnings

  • Focus your Vision Camera by rotating the camera's lens left or right.
