Instead of this image used by default in Windows 11 (and Windows 10), It is the method you need to follow to use the Transparent picture or blank without a picture;
You can use a transparent image you like from the internet. I like Rammstein group, so I used their logo.
This user picture appears in various menus of Windows and on the lock screen. Save the transparent image you like (which you found by searching on google) in the resolutions given below with the file names below.
guest.png - 448*448
user.png - 448*448
user-32.png - 32*32
user-40.png - 40*40
user-48.png - 48*48
user-192.png - 192*192
You can use the site below to resize your picture.
Crop, resize images in JPEG|PNG|GIF format to the exact pixels or proportion you specified, compress them to reduce the file sizes, making it easy to use them as your desktop wallpaper, Facebook cover photo, Twitter profile photo, avatar icons, etc.
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\ <---- Replace the files you have prepared in this folder, take a backup of the folder if you want, or add .bak extension to the names of the default files.
Run the code below in the command prompt that you started with administrator rights. You can save it the code to a .bat file and run the file as an administrator.
REG ADD "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer" /v "UseDefaultTile" /t REG_DWORD /d "1" /f
Or save this code below in a .reg file and Merge it.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer] "UseDefaultTile"=dword:00000001
The same process happens in both ways.
After you restart your computer, you will see your own transparent user image.
I share files below, I also uploaded the default image for backup.
