4 Steps to make your profile pic look really professional

When I first added logos to my profile picture, I just simply did it in Preview on a mac. It was effortless. Once people saw my profile sporting my nifty badges to show off my accomplishments, everyone wanted to know how to do this and I wanted to help. Since not everyone has a Mac I put together these handy directions to use on any device. I used Lunapic, a free online photo editor.

 

Step 1:  Upload your photo into an image program.

Step 2: Go to effects and choose blend two images, then upload the second image. You can add a logo or whatever else your little heart desires. Just grab photos from wherever.

Step 3: The second image sits on top of your photo and you can move it around or resize it all you want.

At that point you can add another image, so you’re not limited to one logo. Just choose blend two images again, and you’re back in business.

 

Step 4:  After you’re happy with everything, save the file. Voila, you’re branded! Here’s what my finished profile picture looks like on Twitter and LinkedIn.

LunaPic is free, so keep that in mind if it starts getting annoying. It’s not the most intuitive piece of software in the world, but for the price, it’s pretty good.

 

So stop reading this and go play with it. You too can turn your profile picture into a mini resume. A picture can say a thousand words and a branded one can help you make sure they’re the right ones for your image.

Wrapping up another year

I teach sixth grade, so I will be saying goodbye to my students in about a week. I'll see them in the hallways, but it won't be the same. They'll never be in my classroom again. That's weird to think about right now, when all I do is see them.It has me wondering; did I serve them as best I could? Did I impart all the wisdom I could into their little brains? Did I ignite a spark, or reaffirm a defeatist attitude?I have to be honest, there are some kids I won't miss. You know the kids I'm talking…See More
