Picture Perfect

Everyone wants new people to see them at their best so we thought we'd provide a few pointers to get your profile picture just right. It's well established that a good photo can have a hugely positive effect on your chances of meeting the right person.
So, here are our top five profile picture tips:
1 CLOSE UP & PERSONAL
The most important thing to show is a clear photograph of your face. We all use our faces to communicate with others so this is what people want to see. Full members can add extra photos so there is an opportunity for you to show off that photo of you waterskiing on holiday!
2 YOU'RE THE STAR
People want to see you, so avoid group photos and pictures with your ex's face cropped out are a definite no-no! With modern software it's very easy to crop photographs to focus on your face so make sure people are seeing you and only you.
3 CROP & ROTATE
If you submit a photo on it's side then it will appear online exactly like that. Make sure your picture shows you sitting upright. Badly cropped or tilted photographs may not be approved for your profile, if you are having trouble editing your images please ask the support team for some assistance.
4 SMILE AND THE WORLD SMILES WITH YOU
Nothing is more likely to put off potential dates than a miserable face staring out from a profile picture. Pick a photo with a warm, welcoming smile and people will be far more likely to get in touch.
5 DONT MAKE DO
If you've looked through all your photo's and don't have anything you're 100% happy with then take one specifically for your profile. You can have your hair done, put on your glad rags and smile for the camera, make sure whoever takes the pic is focussed on your head and shoulders and make sure they get your best side!
