10 Tips to Have a Professional LinkedIn Profile Picture Tip No Ten

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.

So here’s the ninth of 10 Tips to make sure you’re getting what you need to make an impact on LinkedIn.

9. Have the photo taken in soft, natural light

Lighting can completely change the look and feel of your photo. Standing beneath harsh fluorescent lighting can change the tint of your pictures and create shadows on your face, while using a camera flash may make your skin look shiny. Natural light usually produces the best effect, but direct sunlight can make pictures look blown out.

Try taking your picture outside on an overcast day, in a slightly shady area (anywhere that’s out of direct sunlight), or when the sun is setting to help to soften the light. You can also stand inside using the light from a nearby window to illuminate your face and give your skin a natural-looking glow. Avoid standing with your back to the window, as this will make it harder to see your face.

8. Wear what you’d wear to work

Every workplace has a different vibe when it comes to the dress code, and your profile picture can help people get a feel for that vibe right away. You don’t want to be over or underdressed.

If you wear Jeans and a Polo T-shirt most days, it’s okay to wear that outfit in your pic — likewise if you wear a suit.  And if you work from home most days, try wearing clothes that match the dressiness of the company as a whole.

7. Avoid distracting backgrounds

Where you take your picture matters. You don’t want anything to distract from your face, so a simple background can help ensure that you’re the focal point.

That’s not to say you have to be standing in a white, empty space. Taking the picture outside in nature or against a painted wall can keep things simple without being boring. If you want to showcase cool details of where you work, though, that might be better for your banner image.

So here’s the sixth of 10 Tips to make sure you’re getting what you need to make an impact on LinkedIn.

6. Take a photo with the right expression

Your profile picture is an opportunity to convey your personal brand. So if you consider your brand a little more serious, it’s okay to look serious in your picture. But generally speaking, smiling can help make you look more approachable.

One study of 800 profile pictures found that people view you as more likable, competent, and influential if you smile in your pic. And smiles that show teeth were rated twice as likable as closed-mouth smiles.

Consider practicing in front of a mirror first to see which expression you like best. You don’t want to look uncomfortable, so do what feels natural to you.

So here’s the fifth of 10 Tips to make sure you’re getting what you need to make an impact on LinkedIn.

5. Get someone else to take the picture for you if you’re not using a photographer

While it’s fine to use a photo taken with a cellphone, it’s probably best to steer clear of a selfie. Ask a friend or coworker to take it for you — it only takes a minute and it can make a big difference.

For one thing, the front (selfie) camera on most phones produces a lower-quality image than the rear camera. Depending on your phone settings, it may also produce a mirror image, which can cause any words or logos to appear backwards.

Plus, by getting someone else to take the picture for you, you’ll probably find that your pose is more natural and comfortable. They might also help to direct you a bit, like telling you to tilt your head slightly or tuck your hair behind your ears.
