One of the things you should take care of in your Tinder profile is your photo. Why? The photo is your cover letter and the first thing that everyone will notice. No matter how crack you are at writing or how good your description is, in the end we all enter by sight. First impressions are what count here. You only get one chance. In a matter of seconds you have to impress your candidates.

10 Tips on how to create the perfect Tinder profile picture

You don't need to be a photographer, or spend a lot of money buying a professional camera to get good profile pictures. You just need to follow these tips and use our app ;) to make your profile pictures on Tinder the envy of all your friends.

Pay attention to the quality of your photos

As we said, you don't need to take the photos with a professional camera. If you have one or if you have someone who offers to do a session with you, it's even better. But if not, you can also get good results with your cell phone. A quality photo can say a lot about a person; that they are detail oriented, that they care about their image, that they take care of the details…

Look nice and dress well

It is true that men are more attracted to bright colors like red and women are more attracted to colors like blue, but the important thing is to be as natural as possible. Dress well but always be yourself.

Avoid going out with sunglasses, caps or hats, this can give the impression that you are hiding something and we don't want that. Your face has to be seen in its entirety.

Showing off or going out half naked won't do you much good either. Most guys and girls will go for natural rather than artificial.

And if you think it's necessary, use a bit of makeup, it will also help and the final result of the photos will be much better.

Ask someone to help you

If possible, have a friend take the pictures and you just pose. And if it's not possible, don't worry, nowadays all cell phones and cameras have a timer. You can also use tripods for cell phones, if you got one, which you can take the photo by yourself.

We are not very fond of selfies. Think that you are holding the phone with only one hand, the photo may come out blurry, the angle may not be the best and you may not even come out in one piece. 

Take care of poses and gestures

Poses and attitude are very important, as they can convey a lot in the photo. The key is to be relaxed and enjoy the photos you are taking. Try to be relaxed, make it fun and you will see how everything flows more naturally.

Smiling can get you a lot of likes. Think that smiling is one of the emotions that transmit the most in a photo. Try to smile in the photo but don't overdo it. If you can't get a smile, then don't force it. Forced smiles don't work either and on many occasions a small grimace without showing your teeth can also work very well.

Another important point is that if you are not a model, don't pretend to be one. Nothing worse than faking a pose you don't know how to do.

Better show off alone in your Tinder profile photo

Discard the photos in which you are accompanied. Do not take pictures with your brother or sister, nor with your car, nor with your dog and even less with a friend. And above all, what can be fatal for you is to be in the photo with handsome friends. Not only will you leave a lot to be desired, but this can also make the person viewing your profile more interested in your friend than in you.

Beware of lighting

Light in any photo is key. Whenever possible take photos outdoors or in a place where you have very good natural light. Photos with low light lose quality and also do not transmit as well as well-lit photos with lots of light. One of the keys is to avoid being against the light, always have the light facing you or from the side. If, for example, you take the photos indoors, you can take advantage of a window with light. Try to make sure that the light always comes either facing you or from the side, never against the light.

If you are going to take photos outdoors, take them during the last hours of the day, when the sun is almost setting. This moment is known as "the magic hour" precisely for that reason, because you will get tones and colors in your photos that will blow your mind. The light at sunset is softer and the colors are warmer which will give more closeness to your photos.

Don't overdo it with filters or retouching

From our point of view filters are either used very well or they make a photo lose or ruin it completely. As most of us are not professional photographers, the best thing to do is not to use filters if you retouch your photos, either on your cell phone or on your computer. Again we insist on the more naturalness you transmit the better.

The same goes for retouching. If you overdo it or don't do it right, it will show that your photo is retouched and that is even worse than leaving the photo as it is.

Be and show yourself as you really are

Everything we mentioned before is important and will help you to improve your photos in an incredible way. But it's useless if you don't show yourself in them as you are. You can't be cool and pretend to be a supermodel if you are not.

Obviously the physique is almost always the first thing we all look at, but more important for both guys and girls is that the photos look natural. 

Find a good place to take pictures

Always look for a good background for your photos. If possible, make sure it is an outdoor location, where you will get better light. Try not to have anyone or anything behind you that could distract or spoil the photo.

It may seem silly, but things change a lot if instead of taking your Tinder profile picture in your room, you do it on a beach, a mountain or a garden. 

How can I find a good location for my Tinder profile picture?

At PhotoAiD we have got the perfect solution for your Tinder profile photo. We are sure that you might have loads of pictures of beautiful landscapes, beaches or monuments, with the tiny flaw that you might not appear in it.

Because we consider that finding the right soulmate is very important, we developed an app that integrates Artificial Intelligence and can change your profile picture’s background within seconds! 

All you will need to do is to upload a picture of yourself followed by the one that you want to have as a background. Then count until three and your perfect Tinder profile photo will be ready to download and for you to set it up on the leading dating app. In case you are not satisfied with the result, you can change the picture, or the background as many times as you want. As for the background you can also choose within the images and photos that are in our system.

Things to bear in mind while using our Tinder Profile Picture Editor

Now you know how easy it is to make out of your picture the best one to show on your Tinder profile, but bear in mind these advices: 

  • Be sure that the background you choose fits the image of yourself. Remember that Tinder is a dating app. Don’t post pictures of yourself with an office background, as that would not attract anyone’s attention. It is better if you create different profile pictures in different well-known places. Then, when you match your right soulmate, they won’t be bored by all the stories you got to tell them ;).
  • Pay attention to the lightning. If the main photo is darker than the background, that would look completely unnatural and would result in an UNmatch. Is that why you are on Tinder? 
  • Have an eye for detail. PhotoAiD App also includes a cropping editor, so you can adjust your picture easily to look natural and in harmony with the background. 
  • Crop the picture to the right size. The perfect size for the Tinder profile picture is 640x640 pixels, however Tinder changes this once your photo is uploaded. To avoid losing a lot of the quality of your Tinder profile picture, try to reduce the size of it before submitting it. 

Now that you know what makes a Tinder profile picture stand out from the rest, it is time to give it a try to PhotoAiD and smash it with the matches! Just don’t forget to write a review letting us know if you found the perfect match ;).

The idea behind the loops is to insert them into the profile and have them function as a form of personalised presentation that is more expressive than classic photos. Tinder Loops aims to replace, or at least complement, the classic static photos with videos in which the owner of the profile appears showing something attractive or eye-catching, which Tinder says will help to get more matches.

To delete a photo it is as easy as pressing on the X at the bottom right of the photo.

Remember that you can move the photos by simply pressing it for a few seconds and sliding it to the desired position.

About the document

What is Tinder?

Nowadays, the way in which relationships begin has nothing to do with the past. Most people achieve this purpose through their mobile phones, specifically through apps such as Tinder. But what is Tinder? 

Tinder is now the world's leading dating app by far, but the road to this position has not been a quick one. Since it was founded and launched for iOS in August 2012, it has changed substantially and a multitude of options have been added, although the basic concepts have remained the same.

How does Tinder work?

The way Tinder works is simple and that explains its success, both in terms of the number of users and revenue.

The first step to join Tinder is, obviously, to download its app. It is a service designed by and for mobile devices with an Internet connection and GPS, two essential requirements for using the app.

You can download it for iOS and Android. The interface and operation are identical in both systems, and you will be able to meet people who are registered regardless of the operating system you use.

Once you have successfully installed the app, don't wait any longer: open it. Don't be afraid because Tinder is totally free unless you want to pay for some extras. For now, you don't have to provide a credit card or payment method of any kind.

Of course, as you'll see on the first screen that opens, to access Tinder and create a profile you need to link your account with Facebook or give your phone number. This is a major inconvenience for many people who fear that all their Facebook friends will know they are on this dating app but don't panic! There are ways to block your friends or family from accessing your profile.

Once you've managed to create your profile, it's time to personalize it. What exactly does this involve? There are a few key pieces of information needed to complete this step:

  • Email address
  • Name
  • Age
  • Upload at least one profile picture
  • Once you are in, you can expand your profile with a description of up to 499 characters and your profession or company.

With this information, your potential matches will know a bit more about you before they Like you or not. The first thing you see is your main photo - the one with the star as a watermark - so make sure it's as eye-catching as possible.
