Your profile picture has the power to establish a sense of trust in you before starting a project. The image you choose as your profile photo is essential in helping you to attract clients, and stand out in Fiverr's large and competitive marketplace.
Selecting your profile picture
Add an image of yourself
Show yourself clearly and face the front. This can be an original image of you, your company's logo, or an image that represents your service. Make sure that you own the picture you upload. For more information, see Fiverr’s Community Standards.
- Add an image of someone else, a celebrity, or an image that misrepresents your service
- Use a GIF as your profile picture
Creating your profile picture
Show your actual face
We all want to exactly who we're working and communicating with. A profile picture, that clearly shows your face, gives clients a sense of your professionalism and shows buyers who you really are.
Don't: Partially cover your face.
Focus on your face
Look directly at the camera. Only include your head and the top of your shoulders—crop your image If needed. Be sure to dress in a professional and respectful manner—and to smile!
Use the best lighting
Natural light is best. Direct sunlight or cloudy conditions are the most ideal settings.
Avoid: Overhead light as it can cause harsh shadows to appear in your profile picture.
Choose a simple background
A plain, solid, and lightly-colored background is ideal.
Don't: Use a bright background color.
Take your photo
If you take a photo of yourself, set up a tripod or balance your camera/phone on a flat surface. Alternatively, ask someone to take your photo. Take a few photos in different locations with various poses so that you have options to choose from. Choose the photo with the highest resolution.
Don't: Use a blurry or pixelated photo.
