Images featuring sports were shown to increase the chance of a like for men and women by an average of 75 per cent
If you’re normally not the sporty type, no need to fake it but, according to the Hinge data, photos of people participating in sports performed 75 percent better than the average photo.
12. Ask for an outside opinion. Once you’ve come up with a strong variety of photos you want to post, ask a friend to help narrow down your top choices. Some research has found that people rarely pick the most flattering pictures of themselves for their dating profile; strangers actually do a much better job. If you aren’t comfortable asking a stranger for their opinion, at least have a friend scroll through your photos and select their favorites.
While the design is impressive and easy to use, the game line up is disappointing.
Even though Hinge found that only three percent of users’ photos were black and white, those that were were 106 times more likely to receive a like than photos in color. Maybe it’s time to get old-fashioned with our dating profiles?

3. Women: Wear red and show a little cleavage. Women, don’t underestimate a red dress—Khan and Chaudhry also discovered that potential suitors love when women wear red. Big Think reported that women also fare better when they look straight at the camera. And showing skin is considered attractive; women who show cleavage do much better than those who dress more conservatively. Cleavage-baring photos rank 24% better for women in their early 20s and 79% better for women in their 30s.
Jean-Marie McGrath, a spokesperson for Hinge, said: ‘Since Hinge profiles are designed to show off our Members’ personalities, we want to help them put their best foot forward with their photos.

In the world of online dating, you have a much shorter time frame to make a good impression, mere seconds to capture someone’s attention. Because of this, choosing what images to add to your online dating profile should be a thoughtful process.
In contrast, the biggest no-go was photos with a Snapchat filter, which decreased the chance of a like by 90 per cent.
Data scientists from New York-based dating app, Hinge, analysed their members’ photos to reveal which profile pictures get the most likes.
Even though photos of ladies baring their chompers do better on Hinge, for men, the opposite is true. Soft smiles must be officially “in,” because photos of guys smiling with their teeth out of sight were 43 percent more likely to get liked.
While you might see them as old-fashioned, black and white photos were a big hit, increasing likes by a huge 106 per cent
But help is at hand, as Hinge has released data on the most successful photo practices.
Whether you’re taking a break from your dating apps for Bustle’s App-less April or going full steam ahead with your online dating, it’s always helpful to have a guide on what pictures are most effective. It never hurts to get out of your comfort zone, change things up, and await the results.
Let’s be honest: there’s nothing more annoying than trying to pick someone out of a group photo on a dating app profile. Apparently Hinge users agree, because photos where women were standing along were 69 percent more likely to receive a like.

Hinge found that showing your smile in photos makes them 23 percent more likely to be liked, so stop hiding your pearly whites (especially if your parents shelled out tons of cash for orthodontia).
On the flip side, the absolute no-no’s of dating profile pictures were: wearing sunglasses, using Snapchat filters (you’re not a dog, sorry), posing with a possible S.O., beach photos, and selfies — particularly bathroom selfies… seriously guys?
While the iPhone X may have stolen the headlines, in fact the iPhone 8 could be the sleeper hit of Apple’s new range, offering the same power as the X but with features and a design users trust.
Hinge has released data on the most successful photo practices. The findings suggest that women should smile with their teeth and look away from the camera, while men should look directly into the camera and smile without teeth
Duckface selfies. Cartoon filters. Shirtless gym pics. These photos won’t actually win you matches on dating sites. People are looking for an authentic date with a well-rounded life, so how do you make sure you show people who you really are? By choosing the best profile picture.
With the Pixel XL, Google has created a handset that is not only the best Android device out there, but arguably matches the iPhone 8 in terms of design and feel.
At last, something we can all agree on: being alone in your main profile photo is the way to go. Men were 11 percent more likely to receive a like if they were standing on their own in their photo.

5. Turn the flash off. A camera’s flash adds seven years, OkCupid also reports, making you appear much older in photos. So make sure the flash is off before you start snapping. Natural, soft light from the sun hides blemishes and aging effects like wrinkles, and you avoid flash glare like red eyes.
Anyone with an online dating account will know that choosing the perfect profile picture for your page is a tricky business.
The results varied between men and women, especially when it came to the style of smiling, and which direction to look in.
Figuring out how to choose the best pictures for your dating profile is easier said than done. Whether you’re selfie-obsessed and simply have too many to choose from, or you’re camera shy and seriously dreading taking some dating profile-friendly photos — it can be quite the process if you’re serious about putting your best face forward online. (Which, btw, you should be: it’s not a secret that, when it comes to dating apps, people tend to swipe first and ask questions later.)
And taking a picture of yourself in a bathroom mirror will reduce your chances of a like by as much as 90 per cent.

8. Leave the pets out. It doesn’t matter if you’re a cat or dog person, potential daters don’t like pet photos. Zoosk also found that poses with a dog or cat generate 53% fewer messages.
I guess not everyone is into the direct eye contact thing, because photos where women were looking away from the camera were 74 percent more likely to receive a like. Hey, whatever works, right?
The findings suggest that women should smile with their teeth, men should avoid looking away from the camera, and no one should share a bathroom selfie.

2. Men: Look away and show your abs. The website Big Think interviewed Sam Yagan, CEO of the dating site OkCupid, and learned that profile pictures trend better for men when they’re unsmiling and looking away from the camera. Potential matches also love pictures of guys who post ab shots, but only “really nice abs.”
The best profile picture to get you a date: Women should look away and wear their hair up while men are better off smiling without showing their teethDating app, Hinge, analysed a random sample of 1,000 members’ photosFor both sexes, the most liked pictures featured sports and nights outThe least-liked pictures were bathroom selifes, or photos with Snapchat filters
1. Show your natural smile. Khalid S. Khan and Sameer Chaudhry, researchers from the University of North Texas and Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, examined multiple studies and found that a photo with a real, genuine smile attracts people more. You likely passed over this type of smile in your photo album because it squinches your eyes, making them smaller and highlighting crow’s-feet. It’s an attractive facial expression, though, because it displays true happiness.
The team assigned 35 unique photo tags, such as smiling with or without teeth, to a random sample of 1,000 photos.
The biggest no-gos were photos with a Snapchat filter, which were shown to decrease the chance of a like by 90 per cent
