  • In the “Create a column” pane, Set the name for the column, and other parameters. Scroll down and set “Show profile photos” to “Yes” and click on “Save”.sharepoint online show profile photos in person or group column

You can also edit existing columns and enable the “Show Profile Photos” option. Please note, this works only in modern lists and libraries when you click on the “Add column” link from the list page (and not from list settings >> Create a column).
