How To Change Your Profile Picture On Trello

Do you want to personalize your Trello account? Do you want to use a photo as your avatar instead of your initials on the app? If so, it’s time to update your Atlassian profile and upload a picture from your device. Follow our guide below, and we’ll show you how to do so.


In Trello, users have the option to customize their accounts. People can change and add their titles, organization, department, and other information to their profile.

Aside from that, users can also upload a profile photo or header on their profile to personalize it. Having a profile picture also makes it easier for other workspace and board members to recognize you on the app.

Here’s our guide about updating your profile photo on Trello.

How to update your avatar on Trello

If you want people to recognize your profile easier on Trello, you can add a profile photo to your account. In this way, your fellow workspace members can recognize your profile through your avatar.

You can change your profile photo from the Trello mobile or web app. Check our step-by-step tutorials below, and we’ll guide you through both app versions.
