How to change Reddit avatar?

Reddit has some decent avatars for Premium subscribers. But if you are a free user like me, you can still customize your avatar to look cool. You can also upload your avatar from your device but let’s be honest; nobody uses their real picture on Reddit. 

Though free avatars have some limitations, there are still various options. You can customize your avatar from the website or mobile app. 

Note: While creating a Reddit account, you can create your avatar, or you can do it later if you didn’t pick up while signing up.
