New Pokemon Snap: How to Change Your Profile Picture

The game has lots of images to choose from!

In New Pokemon Snap, each player has an in-game profile where other players can view the pictures they’ve uploaded to the game’s Internet sharing service.

Your in-game profile shows the name of your character, your current Research Title, your profile comment, and your profile picture. By default, your profile picture will be a cute picture of your in-game character, but you can choose from lots of different pictures to personalize your profile. Here’s how!

(Before we begin, it’s worth pointing out that you can change your profile picture in multiple ways. In addition to the method shown below, you can change your profile picture from the “Your Info” tab in the game’s “Your Space” section in Professor Mirror’s lab.)

Choose “Lab” on the game’s main screen.

And that’s all there is to it! You can repeat these steps anytime you want to change your profile picture. And, while you’re on the “Your Page” screen, feel free to change your profile comment, Research Title, and in-game name as well!

New Pokemon Snap features lots of content, and it will likely take you quite some time to see and do everything. That being the case, you may want to check out the ChargePlay Clutch from HyperX. It can extend your device’s battery life so you can play New Pokemon Snap (and other Switch games) for a longer period of time before having to charge your Switch. Head over to HyperX’s website to learn more about the ChargePlay Clutch and the company’s other Switch accessories.
