It's Time To Update Your Photo - In HD

 It's Time To Update Your Photo - In HD

Members now have the ability to upload large photos from digital cameras, crop and adjust endlessly, and save the resulting image as their profile photo. These new profile photos are of a much higher quality. So now you can update your photo on ActiveRain and also earn 1080 bonus points.

The new photo or image must be at least 600 x 600.  Our new photo upload feature allows you to use any hi-definition or large sized photo taken of you.  You know that picture of you in the crowd that you always wished you could use but there were other people in it, or it was just too big?  Now you can dig out that photo from the BBQ last weekend, crop yourself out, and upload it.  Don't just do it for the points! lol~

Now just because you look great in your College Cap and Gown, I would still suggest using a current photo, or at least one that is no more than 6 months old.  I can't tell you how many events I've been to lately where I would've known you had your photo here matched.  :-O  I have taken the plunge myself, and even though this is not my best photogenic side, it's current and will have to do til I find a better one.

There's no need for a tutorial on this new feature, it's pretty simple and straight forward.  Just be sure that your starting image is at least 600 x 600 or you will get an error telling you your photo is too small.  Just go to your "My Home" page and click on the "Edit" profile link to add your new HD photo.  I can't wait to see all the NEW and UPDATED faces around the community.  Let's "FACE" it, you know it's time to update YOUR photo, why not do it in HD (Hi-Resolution) and get 1080 bonus points too?

In case you do need a tutorial, here's a two minute video that will walk you through it!
