Why is my profile photo upside down?

Answer

Your profile photo is uploaded with the same alignment as the file version saved on your PC.

If it’s shown on its side or upside down on the upload page, you’ll need to go back and edit the original file on your PC, using a photo editing program to rotate the image and save it again. Then try uploading it to XING again. Rotating the image in the Windows image view won’t work here.

General tips about your profile photo:

  • The photo should be an image file (JPG, PNG or BMP).
  • It should ideally be at least 1024 x 1024 pixels for an optimum resolution.
  • The resolution should not exceed 24 megapixels (this is equivalent to a photo e.g. with 6000 x 4000 pixels).
  • The file size may not exceed 20 megabytes.
