Display - Do you set your display picture using a good photographic image of yourself?

Last updated by Tiago Araújo [SSW] over 2 years ago.See history

In person conversations are much better than chats over the phone. Skype or Teams calls with video cams are great, but you won’t do that all the time for bandwidth and processing power reasons. The next best thing is to have a great professional picture of yourself.

  • Avoid using a built-in image
  • Ideally, have a photo that shows head and top of shoulders close up. Not too far away
  • Your face must not be obstructed with other objects or excessive head cover (e.g. ski mask)
  • Not blurred, pixelated, washed out or over-exposed image. You should be recognizable in your high quality picture
  • An actual photo of yourself. Not a cartoon, objects or family member(s)
