Tip: Check your Linkedin Profile Photo
Linkedin has been rolling out its new profile layout to all users over the last month. If you haven’t looked before, go to Linkedin.com, log in and click Profile/View Profile.
Has your profile photograph shrunk like this? The new profile layout has a larger default photo – 382x382pixels – and if the image you originally uploaded is smaller, Linkedin will show the difference with a grey box around the image. Click on the image and like a visitor, you can see the largest size the photo will display. Is it a good enough quality image? If not you may want to consider getting one done professionally. After all, first impressions are important.
To put right the grey boundary to your photo, choose a new photo to upload, at least 382×382 pixels in size, and upload it by going to Profile/Edit my Profile and clicking on the photo. You can upload a photo up to 4mB in size and Linkedin will just resize it for you and allow you to crop it correctly.
You’ll notice also that Linkedin is using square versions of your photo in a number of different ways. Make good use of this feature and choose a photo that looks good at 382×382 pixels and at the tiny 60×60 size that appears in search.
