A common misconception is that people feel they need a glossy photo for their LinkedIn Profile. But the truth is that it doesn’t have to be fancy!  All you need is a photo that represents who you are and what makes sense for the job you want.

Plus, we’ve made it easy to add and edit photos right from our mobile app:

  1. Tap on your profile photo and either select an existing photo or take a new one

  2. Once you have your photo, tap on the pencil icon to use our profile photo filters and editing tools. You can play around with the brightness and contrast or cropping options to create the right capture. You can also add one of six filters.

And voila! In just a few simple steps you have a great profile photo, which can get you up to 21 times more profile views on LinkedIn.
