Uploading photos: how do I add profile photos to my account?
It’s little wonder then, that those EliteSingles members who have added quality photos to their profile are contacted far often than those whose profiles are incomplete. Happily, uploading photos is a skill that's easy to master, especially with our easy guide:
Uploading photos from your hard drive in three easy steps
Step 1: Choose a great picture
Pick or scan a photo in which you’re clearly visible, and which you are happy for other members to view. Not sure which photo to pick? Try our expert tips for taking the perfect profile photo.
Step 2: Check the size and the format
It's easy to upload digital photos from your hard drive to your EliteSingles account - you just need to make sure that they are saved in the right format. EliteSingles supports photos with the following file extentions: JPG, GIF, PNG or BMP. It's also important to make sure that your photo is the right size: photo files must be no larger than 9.7 MB.
Step 3: Use the EliteSingles upload feature
Log in to your regular account at https://www.elitesingles.ca and click ''Profile'' at the top of the page. You should now see a silhouette of a person, with a button underneath that says ‘’Upload a photo.‘’ Clicking the button will open a window that will allow you to select your photo from where it is stored on your hard drive.
Once your photo appears in the preview window, you can add a title or caption to the image to give it context. Just remember, you must click ‘'save'’ to save the photo to your profile.
Congratulations – you've just uploaded your first profile photo. Our easy-to-use photo feature also allows you to add up to 23 additional photos using the same process.
Please note: to ensure that the pictures on our site are genuine, the EliteSingles Customer Care Validation Team manually approves all photo submissions. This means that there might be a short delay (usually less than 24 hours) before your photos are approved for display.
Uploading photos using Facebook
It’s also possible to add photos to your EliteSingles account via Facebook. To do so, login into your profile using the steps above, then click the blue Facebook '‘Connect’' image.
This will open Facebook’s login page in a new window. Login to your Facebook account and click '‘ok’' to allow EliteSingles access to your Facebook profile and photos. You should now be able to see the photos and albums your have stored on Facebook.
Select the photo or photos you wish to import over to your EliteSingles account and press '‘Save'’. This will then open the photos in the EliteSingles window. As above, you can add titles to your pictures – and you'll need to press ‘’save’’ when satisfied to add the photo to your account. Again, repeat this process as needed for additional photos.
Choosing your primary profile photo
Having multiple photos added to your EliteSingles account allows interested users to learn more about you. However it's also important to select one primary photo that will function as your default image when connecting with other users. The ideal primary profile photo will have you as the subject and will clearly show your face with no obstructions.
When you’ve decided which photo you would like to be your primary one, hover your cursor over it. If the Validation Team has approved the photo as a primary image, a drop down menu will appear that includes a picture of a pin next to the words ‘’Profile Photo.’’ Click it to ‘pin’ the selected photo in place as your primary image.
