I opened a Gmail account and uploaded my profile picture. Later I decide to change the picture, but I cannot find how to do it after the Gmail UI has been updated.

There are two places Gmail will look for your profile picture.

  1. Click on the gear at the top right & scroll down to where it says "My picture" & click on "Change picture."
  2. Go to http://plus.google.com (navigate to your profile if it doesn't bring you there already). Above your name at the top of the page will be a circle that should encapsulate your old profile picture. if you hover your cursor above it an icon resembling a camera will appear click directly on the camera. You can now directly drag a picture into this window (if your browser supports it) or you can click on "Select a photo from your computer".

Note that the tablet/mobile version will not give you these settings options - you need to do this from a desktop
