Profile pictures for Bumble
The main picture should be all about YOU.
We often here that
“I don’t have any pictures of only me!” or
”I don’t like taking selfies!”.
We won’t catch any fish in the sea like that.
Grab your iPhone or camera and have it ready when you are going out on an activity.
To draw attention to the subject we suggest using an iPhone or DSLR with a wide aperture. However, these days, iPhone cameras will definitely get the job done and they even come with a background blurring option!
This way the focus is on you and not the background. This can also be done with an editor like Photoshop but is slightly more time consuming to make it look more professional.
In the picture below we see a before and after photo of what we want to create.
If you don’t have a camera that can take blurry picture, a photo of you doing activities will also do!
This way other persons could imagine seeing themselves doing the activities with you!
Outfit and grooming are key
Focus on wearing a nice shirt and stay away from shirtless pictures.
Try and wear new or dry-cleaned clothes.. No faded polo shirts!
Make sure your beard is neaten up or go clean-shaven.
The essentials of having a good background
Avoid backgrounds that are distracting and unattractive. You will lose people’s attention if you don’t very fast.
Choosing a simple background or blurry background is key.
Avoid shots with people of opposite sex
Visitors of your profile often have three seconds to make a decision. They don’t want to be spending time on investigating if that’s your girlfriend or not!
So instead of using a lot of group pictures focus on adding pictures of only you doing an activity outside for example.
Now that you have learned some hacks on how to make a good profile picture..
Tinder will reward you by increasing your rating due to adding some high quality pictures which most people don’t have!
