Build Your EzineArticles Photo Gallery

Add another level of professionalism to your Extended Author Bio!

Did you know that offers you the ability to upload up to (30) professional photos to your account? These photos can then be viewed by your readers through your extended author biography.

Follow these steps to add photos to your Professional Photo Gallery:

  1. Log into your EzineArticles Expert Author Account
  2. From the Author’s Area, click on the “Profile Manager” drop-down menu
  3. Select “Edit Author Photo”
  4. Scroll down to “Professional Photos” and click on the “Browse…” button underneath
  5. Find and select your picture file
  6. Click the “Upload Photo” button


  • Photos must be .jpg or .jpeg file.
  • File size must be Less than 300k
  • Images should be at least 480×600 pixels (480px wide by 600px high) but no more than 960×1200 pixels (960px wide by 1200px high).
  • You can upload a maximum of 30 professional images.

Removing Photos: Place a check in the checkbox next to each image you wish to delete. Then click on the “Remove Checked Photos” button below the images.

Editing Captions: If you would like to change captions for your professional images, click on the icon and a text area will be displayed where you can change the caption for each photo. Simply make your changes and click on the “Update Captions” button at the bottom of your professional photo gallery.

And don’t forget the most important photo of all – your Author Photo! If you don’t have one yet, add it TODAY. This seemingly insignificant photo is vital to the success of your Resource Box. Surf to the March 25, 2009 blog post to learn more.

Your blog posts are great, and seem to answer my questions just before I ask them. I hadn’t realized that I could include professional photos in my bio. Great.

Thanks for more good tips. On this topic, see if you can get photos taken where you have won an award. Nothing like being a winner!

Just to clarify – you’re allowed a maximum of 30 (not 36 as you stated) pictures plus your author photo.

480€”600 pixels is the maximum size for your pictures. They can definitely be smaller, which may actually be preferable for web viewing.

I dug a little deeper and learned that the minimum size restriction of 480×600 pixels was put in place to encourage members to only upload high-quality, professional photographs. It was felt that smaller photos often did not adequately represent our members as Expert Authors.

I intend to investigate further to determine the validity of this assumption. If it proves to no longer be accurate, we’ll reconsider that particular restriction.

I did not know we could have several pictures on this great site. Who doesn’t like to see a face and an article or two or three or four!

I am on it tomorrow!

Upon further review, we’ve decided to increase the quantity of photos you can upload to 100 and reduce the size restriction for professional photos to 240×600.

Thanks for your input. =)

Great article! A question: May I upload an image of my book’s award, or is the photo gallery just for author images? Thanks for the info.

The photo must be actual photo of you or have you in the photo.

We will also accept renderings, drawings or non-photo images if they are of you but we will not accept the image of your book’s award.

We had a change of heart :)

Your Professional Gallery can include anything that will help ADD credibility to you as an author. So feel free to add the image of your book’s award!

By all means! That’s one of the reasons the Photo Gallery exists.
