Your Xbox Live gamer picture headlines your account, and displays alongside your avatar for other users of Microsoft's online service. You can change an account's gamer picture from the Xbox 360's dashboard, but it's also available on a computer after you tie you Xbox Live account to a Windows Live account. Save the picture to your hard drive for use as a forum avatar or other identifying picture. You need a Windows Live ID tied to an Xbox Live account to access gamer pictures. If you don't already have on, create one for free on Microsoft's website.
