Hi all,

I am wondering if I can get some pointers on what makes a good Linkedin profile picture. From a relatively superficial google search, I learned that a headshot with a natural smile and profession-appropriate clothing is a good start. The job field is scientific research (biology, either academic or industry), so the image shouldn't have an overly corporate feel to it (i.e., studio portrait with suit and tie is too corporate), but rather should convey approachability and creativity, while still maintaining an adequate measure of professionalism and authority. Seems like a tough balance to achieve.

I would appreciate advice on composition as well as how to optimize the technical properties of the image file for online, profile picture usage.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Infidel
