Change "profile picture"

You know that little “person” on the top right of your screen that you see that lets you sign out, or login to another user. Is there a way to update that picture from a generic formless person to a custom picture?


I assume this is KDE, yes?
Go to Settings, Users. Select your user on the left, then click the enlarged picture of your user on the right. Numerous options should appear, including choosing a file.
(That should work unless that element is using a generic user icon)
