Let's give your Airtasker profile a personal touch by adding a picture! It's a simple process that can make a big impact. Follow these steps to upload your photo:
- Go to Settings, which you can find by navigating to your Account options.
- Look for the "Upload Photo" button and click on it.
- Select a picture of yourself that you'd like to use as your profile photo. Make sure it truly represents you and your personality.
At Airtasker, we value trust and transparency, which is why we encourage all members to have a profile photo and display name that reflect their true selves. Here are some reasons why having a photo of your face is beneficial:
- Trust: When people can see your face, it helps build trust. It creates a sense of familiarity and makes interactions more authentic.
- Safety: We prioritise the safety of our community. Having a recognisable profile photo ensures that individuals are not anonymous, promoting a secure environment.
- Greater earnings: Here's an exciting stat: Airtaskers with profile photos showing their face are more than 10% more likely to receive tasks! So, having a clear photo can potentially increase your earning opportunities.
Now, let's talk about what makes a great profile photo:
- Focus on your face: Opt for a headshot where your smiling face takes centre stage. It helps create a positive and approachable impression.
- Face the light: Choose a well-lit photo with light coming from in front of you. This ensures that your face is clearly visible and adds a warm glow.
- Think big: Upload a photo that's at least 600 pixels wide. This ensures a crisp and clear image, enhancing your profile's visual appeal.
- Avoid distortion: Color photos with minor distortions are better received by audiences. Keep it natural and true to life.
Important note: Airtasker reserves the right to remove profile photos and display names that are deemed inappropriate. We want to maintain a welcoming and respectful environment for all. Additionally, it may soon be a requirement for all members to have a clearly identifiable profile photo and name, so it's a proactive step to get ahead of the curve.
