Picking Your Primary Photo
Why is the primary photo so important? This is the photo that appears on every page of your profile, and a smaller version shows up when other members search the network.
In other words, this photo is how other members get to know you. So make a great impression with these tips:
DO use a photo of only you.
It's your time to get maximum attention.
DO make it up-close and personal.
Use a good headshot with head and shoulders.
DO use a recent photo. Be honest.
Within 6 months ago is preferred.
Other members are more attracted to you with a happy smile.
Don'ts for Primary Photos
DON'T wear a hat or sunglasses.
Make it easy to see who you really are. Try to avoid too many accessories, head gear etc.
DON'T use a blurry or darkened photo.
It will be hard to see and members won't take you seriously.
DON'T submit a shot with red-eye.
Stay away from this at all costs. No one dreams about dating scary red eyes.
DON'T submit a background that is too busy.
Busy backgrounds distract from placing all the emphasis on you.
