How to install new portrait in Pillars of Eternity ?

In Pillars of Eternity, there are two separate PNG files for any given portrait, implementing the different image sizes used by the game. You can save images in this format using practically any image editor such as Paint.net, Adobe Photoshop or GIMP. (Jpeg files are supported as well, but given the opportunity prefer the higher quality PNGs)

The two image sizes used by the game are:

  • Large (210 x 330 pixels), seen on character sheets.
  • Small (76 x 96 pixels), seen in the UI elements like the party bar.

Once you have your portrait files (created or downloaded), you'll want to copy them into the following directories:

\Pillars of Eternity\PillarsOfEternity_Data\data\art\gui\portraits\player
