Your LinkedIn profile picture is an important element of your LinkedIn presence. According to LinkedIn just having a picture makes your profile 14 times more likely to be viewed by others.
It’s best to have a headshot taken by a professional photographer. A photographer can ensure that the lighting is flattering and that you’re putting your best foot (or rather, face) forward.
Usually a photographer (like me) will help you with getting the right photo for your LinkedIn Profile but not always.
So here’s last one of 10 Tips to make sure you’re getting what you need to make an impact on LinkedIn.
10. Use filters wisely
LinkedIn now offers six filters that you can apply to your profile picture, each of which will give your photo a slightly different look and feel. Think carefully about what kind of mood you want to convey, and don’t be afraid to play around to see which filter looks best. The Spotlight and Classic filters, for example, can make your image look more polished and sharp.
If you don’t want to apply a filter, you can still adjust the brightness, contrast, saturation, and vignette of the photo directly on LinkedIn — so you don’t need to learn Photoshop to make a few subtle tweaks.
