How to Upload Your Etsy Profile Photo

Have you just purchased new Etsy graphics from me? Thank you! I’ll help you get them loaded into your shop! This article is about how to upload a profile photo. If you need to upload your Etsy banner, check out this post.

Step 1:

Go to the Etsy homepage and log into your shop.  Go to the “Your Account” link in the top right-hand corner, and choose “Public Profile” from the dropdown menu.


Step 2:

On the “Public Profile” page, your profile photo is the first section. Hit the “Choose File” button, and go to the folder in which you have your profile photo that you’d like to upload. In my sets, it is a file called “smallavatar.jpg.” Choose your file and click the “Open” button in the window.



Step 3:

Scroll to the bottom of the page and hit the “Save Changes” button.




Step 4:

Your profile photo should appear in this spot after saving. . .


Step 5:

Hop on over to your shop and check out your cool new profile photo! You may have to hit your refresh button in your brower if you had your shop page already open.



And you’re done!
