Custom gamer pictures for the Xbox One was something alluded to all the way back in 2013, even before the Xbox One released. Now the time has come ! …5 years later. None the less, it’s time for the memes, and nasty things to show up on our friends list.

For the time being the feature is only available for the Xbox Preview Program members and will be released to the public at a later date.  None the less here’s the process to get your anime pics front and center on your profile:

For Profiles:

1. Prepare a custom Gamerpic image. The image must be at least 1080×1080 pixels. The following formats are supported: png, jpg.

2. Save the image to a USB flash drive, and insert the drive into one of the Xbox One’s USB ports.

3. On your Xbox One, launch the Guide, select your Profile, and navigate to My profile > Customize profile > Change gamerpic.

4. Select Upload a custom image, select your USB flash drive, and choose your custom Gamerpic image.

5. The image will load into an editor; use LT, RT, and right stick to highlight what section of the image will become your Gamerpic.

6. Once satisfied, select Upload.

 

For Clubs:

1. Prepare a custom Club image. Club profile pics must be at least 1080×1080 pixels, and Club background images must be at least 1920×1080 pixels. The following formats are supported: png, jpg.

2. Save the image(s) to a USB flash drive, and insert the drive into one of the Xbox One’s USB ports.

3. Navigate to your Club Info page and select Change profile pic or Add background image.

4. Select your USB flash drive, and choose your custom image.

5. The image will load into an editor; use LT, RT, and right stick to highlight what section of the image will become your Club profile pic or Club background image.

6. Once satisfied, select Upload.

 

NOTE: Only adults are currently able to upload custom images. [Sorry Junior]

Now apposed to what you think, you can’t upload whatever you please as your picture must be approved on Xbox’s behalf. Furthermore, while photos that might normally be disapproved by Xbox have a chance of getting by in the preview stage, don’t expect that to be the case once custom gamer pictures go public.
