Why is my LinkedIn profile picture blurry?

Make your Linkedin profile picture perfectly square, not less than 400×400 pixels, not less than 75KB, and make sure it’s crisp before uploading. I’ve never encountered a blurry profile photo following those steps.

Common reasons for persistent problems

  • Your original picture is too large. Don’t rely on Linkedin’s backend system to resize a large image to give you a clear thumbnail. Use something like Photoshop instead.
  • You’ve uploaded a picture from a mobile device. Try from a desktop instead.
  • You’re viewing a cached version of your profile page.

 

Linkedin’s official guidelines:

  • Maximum file size is 8MB.
  • Profile photo: Pixel size is between 400 (w) x 400 (h) pixels and 7680 (w) x 4320 (h) pixels.
  • File type must be PNG, JPG or GIF.
