The topic sentence says it all: I want to have a picture instead of one of the icons supplied in “edit profile”; I do not see how to do this.
There is currently no official way to do that, however there’s a trick to replace the image that is shown in the top right corner.
Click on the avatar in the top right corner and then click on the name to open the avatar selection, select any avatar you want.
Now that avatar should appear in
Now close Brave and replace the image whith any picture you want
I hope this helped you
