Author Image Gallery Spotlights

This morning we’ve been reviewing structural changes within the site that haven’t been updated or changed in a long time and I’ve noticed that the Professional Image Gallery feature has had quite a few new submissions.

EzineArticles expert author, Diana Chaloux‘s professional image gallery shows off her expertise in the fitness industry as a certified trainer and fitness DVD producer. This is exactly how we had hoped the professional image gallery feature would be used. Nice job Diana!

Also, EzineArticles expert author Adam Waters (An Aussie living in Japan) posted some impressive Before & After photos for his physique transformational expertise. Nice job Adam!

What makes these professional image galleries work is that they reinforce the expertise of the author… they add value and build credibility and reader trust in the authors expertise. :-)

Good post. Completely agree. A picture is worth a thousand words and as soon as I can get in front of a Steinway grand piano, I’ll be posting a new picture of myself.

Absolutely Luigi! Good call indeed. Diana looks like she has the energy to stick up for our rights and stand tall with enough stamina to never give up in the face of bureaucracy!

I would vote for Diana and not just because she is a total babe, but because I realize that it takes dedication, strength of character and perseverance to press on and stay in that type of shape.

You know I see Barack Obama being courted as an almost movie star sex symbol as he runs for President in the US. Why can’t we have a smart, hardworking, good looking, expert author from EzineArticles in there. I mean Diana could not only write her own speeches she could back them up too. She looks like she could walk the talk.

We definitely need her in Congress now and the White House later!

Hi Lance,

well, you are talking to someone who has advocated for a long time that women in politics would fare much, much better than men. And I do not mean to be partisan – it doesn’t matter if Dems or Reps, men politicians seem to be pretty much all bad.

You’re right, judging from her looks Diana really gives the impression of someone who can hold her own, no question about it.

Edward,

let me ask you this: how come I would much rather see Diana sitting in front of a Steinway than you?

Chris,

I didn’t know EzineArticles had image galleries. Can you tell me how to access it from my back end page? If I wanted to add images, how would I do that?

I found it. But I’m wondering …

Are screenshots allowable, or do all photos have to include me as a part of the image?

Diana,

You look superb, certainly a lot different than the average American!

I do not suppose you would like to come swimming with me one day?

Speaking of Swimming there sure are a lot of great authors in the Swimming Section here!

Swimming is a great way to stay in shape, but those who have the most muscles and least amount of body fat do not float well you know, their density is greater. So whales work real good as swimmers you see? Still Americans are way too fat and many are starting to look like sea creatures too.

Allen,

The ladies are all jealous (including me).

Spandex is something I wear under my sweats! Definitely not my whole wardrobe.

And I get my workout just getting into the spandex!

Thanks for asking…

The last time I had a six pack, I had to sleep it off.

All,

I noticed the first link I had was wrong and it’s been fixed:
http://www.EzineArticles.com/gallery.html

Allen,

We’ve been allowing all kinds of related photos…so as long as they are in good taste and further increase your specific expertise credibility…all the better.

In fact, we are increasing the photo count from 12 to 30 this week because the tool is being used very well.

You can add to your professional image gallery in the same photo upload submission form as your author photo.

HOW TO UPLOAD YOUR PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS:

  1. Log in to your EzineArticles membership site.
  2. Click on PROFILE MANAGER
  3. Click on EDIT AUTHOR PHOTO
  4. Choose the author you want to edit (if you have more than one in your account).
  5. Scroll down to “Professional Photos” and follow the instructions.

Contact us in Author/Member Support if you have any troubles.

Steve,

Thankfully, we have people like Diana and other fitness models, trainers and teachers to help inspire us to lead a leaner life. :)

One thing I’ve noticed is the last 3 years here in America, there has been a big push to get trans-fats out of our food supply. This is good as long as Americans don’t take that as a license to over-eat.

Trans-fats – is that fat that travels?

Yes, I’ve always thought fat with luggage was a problem. :-)
