How to change your profile👨💼 picture🖼️ on LinkedIn?
If you think🤔 that your picture🖼️ is not as good👌 as it should be, please change it. Also, do not leave your profile👨💼 picture🖼️ empty; that’s even worse than a lousy picture🖼️ of yours. It might make people🧑🤝🧑 suspicious; they will ask themselves if you really are the one you claim to be.
Just log into your account, click🖱️ on ‘Me’, and select ‘View Profile’. Now move the cursor to your picture🖼️ and click🖱️ on it. A window pops up, select ‘Add photo’ from the bottom of it, then you will get to another window where you have two options. You can upload a photo🖼️, or if you are working on a laptop🖥️ or a mobile📱 app, you can use⚒️ the camera to take a new picture🖼️. Once you upload or take that picture🖼️, you will see👀 a window where you can edit it.
There are four options in this window:
- Crop: where you can zoom, straighten or move the photo🖼️
- Filter: where you can use⚒️ the desired color filter
- Adjust: you can control the brightness, contrast, saturation, and vignette of the picture🖼️
- Visibility: you can define who will see👀 your profile👨💼 photo🖼️ in this section.
Now that you have adjusted the photo🖼️, click🖱️ on the save button. Congratulations, you have a new profile👨💼 photo🖼️.
Why bother so much?
I mean, it’s not like❤️ we are in a beauty contest; why is it so important🖋️ to have a professional picture🖼️ ?⁉️ because a picture🖼️ can say more than thousands of words.
As we mentioned, a good👌 picture🖼️ is a good👌 first🥇 impression, which is the key for other people🧑🤝🧑 to decide🤔 whether to continue their connection⛓️ with you or not.
I’m not exaggerating if I say pictures🖼️ on LinkedIn are even more critical 🖋️ than any regular photos🖼️. You see👀, in real life, when you meet someone, you can make your first🥇 impression better by talking🗣️ to that person or having a beautiful smile on your face, or having some etiquette while drinking a cup of coffee.
But that’s not the case on this platform; all you have to present yourself on this social network🕸️ is a photo🖼️ and a bunch of words. So it’s better to use⚒️ the best😎 materials to have the best😎 first🥇 impression possible, right?
A good👌 photo🖼️ does have a very strong💪 effect on how people🧑🤝🧑 will think🤔 about you, and believe it or not, it might actually cause you to get offered some perfect👌 positions. So now that you know how to change your profile👨💼 picture🖼️ on LinkedIn, revise yours to see👀 if it is suitable👌 enough👌.
