Changing User Account Photos (Custom)
Has anyone been able to change their User Account photo to a custom image?
I can't seem to find the option, whether I look in iMessages or System Preferences.
You seem to be limited to using Defaults, Recent or the Camera...

Found that if you 'edit' your current one, you can drag & replace the image then... Thought there'd be a 'new' or something similar but ho-hum!

Right click the image you are asking for. Click 'Get Info'.
Keep that window up.
Then open System Settings. Click User Groups.
Click your name.
Click the edit icon. Click Recents.
Now open the the window from earlier (The info from your custom picture) and drag the icon it shows to 'Recents'.
Congradulations! You now have your custom icon!

While the following spreadsheet is over one year old, it probably still represents the distribution:

Here's a better solution, I think, for custom user account photos.
Your pix will appear next to the "Defaults" tab in that pane.
