I believe the only way to change your avatar (profile picture) is to go under "Account Management" on your PS3 (can't be done from a computer) and select the "Avatar" icon.  There are a bunch of ones already loaded there, and you can purchase others from the PSN store.

** Use a unique password for your PSN ID - one you don't use anywhere else **
** Engage brain before putting mouth in gear **

Yea I was thinking the same thing, what I would like is to have my facebook profile picture rather than the avatar but as I don't have a ps4 (**bleep**) I don't know if I can do it from any other place. As of rite now, ps3 does not have the social media functionality of the ps4 in that rearguard LOL

Yes, this works for my main PSN account.  I was able to change my profile picture.  But I would also like to change the profile picture of my son.  Mys son's PSN account is setup as a subaccount but "Edit Profile" - "Change Profile Picture" doesnt appear on his account on the Playstation App. ???  Is that because its  a subaccount?

 

thanks.

I have the same problem. The psn app update says that you can change your profile picture through the app but it doesn't give me the option. I played around with it and it seems that I can't.

Once you go into the app, click on edit profile, then edit name, once you save a name click on edit profile again and it will then allow you to change your profile picture. @BrittanyLobo
