Create a Profile Picture for these Platforms ...


For many of us, Instagram is a platform to showcase our photos with friends, family, colleagues, and others. However, for other people, an Instagram profile is a business.


  • What is a profile pic(ture)?

    A profile pic is the image that shows up on social media and other online platforms whenever you’re chatting, scrolling, sharing, or posting. It’s usually a photo, illustration or graphic that looks like a square or circle, and shows up along with a username/name. That small pic helps people quickly recognize who you are, and also makes your account look more you-nique.
  • How do I make a good profile picture?

    Everyone can create a great profile picture, but how do you do it? And how do you make it good? Here are some tips to get you started.
    1. To start, choose a clear and high-quality photo: Make sure your photo is clear, has good lighting, and a close-up of your face or upper body so that people can easily see your face and traits.
    2. Choose a background: Use a simple background that won't distract from your face, such as a plain wall or natural scenery. Avoid busy or cluttered backgrounds. You can also remove the background in most online profile picture tools.
    3. Reflect your personality: Choose a photo that shows you and your values, interests, and style. This can help people get a sense of who you are.
    4. Dress accordingly: You are what you wear. Create your personal brand and the image you want to project. Avoid wearing inappropriate clothing. Smile and look in the lens: A smile always helps. Eye contact is important for a positive first impression.
    5. Be yourself: Ultimately, the best profile picture is one that best represents who you are and the image you want to create. Be true to yourself and let your personality shine.
    6. Feedback: Ask your friends or family members for feedback to understand how people perceive your profile picture.
  • How to change my profile picture?

    In almost all cases, you can change your profile picture from the settings in an app (profile, general, or account) or by clicking on your avatar. Make sure to follow the size guidelines.
  • What size profile picture do I need?

    Most online pfp tools allow you to export the image as a square (e.g., 400x400 (in pixels)) to use directly on whichever platform (e.g., for your Youtube profile). The correct sizes are: Instagram (320x320), Facebook (170x170), LinkedIn (400x400), Microsoft Teams (500x500), Twitter (400x400), Discord (128x128), Slack (512x512), and Twitch (256x256). However, you can often use any squared size for any platform. Ensure the quality is high enough to avoid pixelated photos.
  • What makes a good profile?

    A good profile should be accurate, engaging, and informative. This is what makes a good profile:
    1. Profile Picture: A clear and high-quality profile picture that precisely represents you or your brand.
    2. Bio: A brief and engaging bio highlighting your unique qualities, interests, and achievements. Make sure to include keywords for search findability.
    3. Engagement: Make regular updates and engage with others on the platform. This can include sharing content, commenting on others' posts, and participating in groups or communities and discussions.
    For professional profiles:
    1. Background: A summary of your education, work experience, and other relevant qualifications. Highlight your key skills and accomplishments. Keep it clear and concise.
    2. Interests: List your interests, hobbies, and other activities that help others get to know you better.
    3. Recommendations: Get endorsements or recommendations from others who can vouch for your skills and character. This can help establish credibility and trust with others.

    Above all, a good profile should be authentic and true to who you are. Be honest about your strengths and weaknesses, and let your personality shine through in all your interactions.

  • Does a profile picture matter?

    Yes, having a profile picture is very important because it can help others identify you and establish a sense of familiarity and trust. A profile picture is often your first impression of your personal brand. It can help people recognize it across the internet, which can be helpful while trying to expand your social circles or network.
