Updating your ActiveRain Photo to HD~ A Simple How To Instructional Video.

By
Real Estate Agent with Myrtle Beach Homes Blog

In case you missed it earlier today, ActiveRain introduced the ability to now upload an HD profile picture in which you can crop & edit right on the network.  If you missed the announcement, take a minute to read all about it on Brad's post: It's time to update your photo- In HD.  To me, this is such a wonderful feature because for some reason, it seems the pictures of me where I am actually smiling and have my eyes open always have someone else in the photograph. (I should win an award for the worst person ever to be photographed.)  Now, I can use some of those pictures & crop out the surrounding people without needing to use photo editing software.

The video below will show you just how easy it is to use this feature.  I uploaded a new photo of myself, edited & saved it in less than 2 minutes.  Remember though, when choosing your new profile photo, make sure it is at least 600 x 600 pixels wide or you will receive an error message.  As always, if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me for help!

Jer - I did mine yesterday after the show.  Thankfully, I had an HD version of the same picture I was already using, so I am still recognizable.  :)

Very simple.  So, how do I do this with my driver's license picture?  I have few pictures of myself and that just happens to be the best one (by far)!  I'm having a problem with scanning in the photo with the holographic coating on it...

Hi Brad,

I do not have an option to add a photo to my profile.  I am not an upgraded member - do I need to be in order to add a photo? 

Thank you,

Yvonne

Hello,

Is there any way to update my photo with a non-HD photo?  It won't seem to take a smaller photo anymore.

Thank you.

When I try to upload a new picture into my profile I keep getting "Bad Gateway", what does this mean?

Sorry. My comment sounds so silly. How do you know if the photo is HD format?
