How To See Full Size YouTube Account/Profile Picture

It’s a well-known fact that it has become harder to see the full-size youtube account/profile picture in recent years.

This can be highly frustrating when trying to find out information about somebody, but their profile picture is too small and blurry for you to read anything.

Especially on youtube, when you want to see to someone’s profile picture, due to its small size you cannot see it properly. And it is not up to the users to change the dimensions of that picture, but it’s by default YouTube feature, that all the profile pictures are resized to 100X100 size.

Luckily, for seeing a large size or the full size of youtube account picture you don’t have to visit any third-party website or use any sort of tool. In this blog post, I will show you some really easy steps on how to view the full size youtube profile pictures so that you can quickly get all the profile pictures from someone’s account.

Steps To View/Download YouTube Profile/Account Picture

Here are the steps required for you to be able to view full-size youtube profile pictures.

Step 1. Go to a youtube profile that you want to see the full size picture from

Step 2. Right click on the youtube profile picture

Step 3. Click on “Open image in new tab” if you are using the Googel Chrome Internet Browser. If are using browser other than chrome, like opera or Mozilla Firefox, then you have to click on the “Open Image”.

Step 4. Right-click again and select “View Image”

This will open the Profile/Account Picture of that particular YouTube Channel. But you will see that the image is very small to see.

Step 5. So, next, you would have to click on that “100X100”, present in the URL. That is actually the Profile/Account Picture, width & height, which is pretty small to see. and in the next step we are going to change this value to a bigger one so that it is properly visible to our eyes.

Step 6. Afterwards, you can enter your Custom Size, like you can enter any number between 400, 450, 500, 600, 650, 650, 800, 900, 1000 and even 2000, until you can see that image clearly.
