Your LinkedIn profile isn’t quite like your Facebook or your Instagram profile – it’s a chance to represent yourself in the best possible light to the big, bad business world. Therefore, while a pouty duck-face profile photo or an image of you enjoying an ice cold beer with the guys might garner plenty of likes on other social media portals, those types of images probably aren’t going to go down too well on LinkedIn. Here’s everything that you need to know about professional profile photographs on LinkedIn and why you need one.
Why You Need a Professional LinkedIn Profile Picture
As mentioned, your LinkedIn profile is your direct connection to the business world so, obviously, you’ll want to make a good impression. If you’re a business owner, this is important not only for your own profile, it’s important for each individual staff member’s profile too! If a potential partner, client or supplier investigates the type of people who work at your company and is faced with profiles that are less than professional, this will undoubtedly affect the way in which they view your organisation as a whole and may be the deciding factor in terms of whether they’ll do business with you or not.

What Size Should Your LinkedIn Profile Picture Be?
LinkedIn recently underwent a few changes (in April 2018), so the ideal size of a profile photo has also changed. Nowadays, the recommended size for a LinkedIn profile pic is 400 x 400 pixels. The good news is that you can still upload larger images – just make sure that they’re square. In terms of your cover image, you should be aiming for 1584 x 396 pixels to ensure the best possible results.
