Where are you trying to change? On your channel page or from your Profile page?

I can't seem to find my channel or my profile page. i'm not new to the internet, but after signing up for the first time and logging on, gives me no indication that i am logged on to my account. this is not so much a profile pic issue as it is a "Can't view my profile at all" issue. what gives?

dwtdwtdwt – The Login button at the top right should change to your username. Does it still say “Login”?

this happens to me all the time, it's something with the cookies, so i just go into Firefox (or Chrome, etc) and delete all cookies associated with or - then log back in

Jason M. you never answered the question on how to change a profile picture! I can't change mine ether, from default, and I have been trying to find a way for a week and there is no option! The only " picture option " to change is for the banner! I have been all over my personal settings to try to find the answer myself and I am getting no where! This is making me want to switch over to youtube!

Guys I figured it out. In the upper left hand corner under search it has your name. To the right of your name there is a wrench icon. Hit that and you can change it. Hope this helped. :D

You cannot change anything from the mobile app, you have to go via safari or google and then log in... Then you will find your profile and be able to make changes like removing or changing your pic... Hope this helps!

hey guys! i had the same problem with changing profile picture. after reading your posts in here, I've realized i cant see the "save changes" button on any browser (chrome/mozzila) . so after choosing the new picture, go to browser settings and simply zoom out page until u see the button.

Profile picture:
Go to settings, and half way down the page, it says Change profile picture. Click on that tab and upload whatever picture you want. I just figured it out too.

Hey guys, did the site go through a layout change because I can't seem to find the "wrench icon" that ExtremeGaming24 was talking about. Please help me, I am new here. Thanks.

I don't have the wrench either. Is it different for me on the iPad app?

I'm struggling with this issue too. I am using the twitch app and I can't seem to find any way to change my banner or profile picture. It's really beginning to annoy me because I've searched everyone. It should be in settings but it's not. Please help me!
