Adding a current photograph of yourself to your LinkedIn profile is crucial because it allows people viewing your profile to put a face to the name.

To edit your profile photo, mouse over "Profile" in the header and select "Edit Profile." Mouse over your existing profile photo, and click "Change photo." If you'd like to add a photo, click "Add a photo," and choose a file from your computer.

Choose a photo that clearly shows your face and portrays you in a professional way.

Once you've selected a photo, drag the yellow box to crop and resize your photo, and use the arrow icons to rotate it.

You'll see previews to the right of how your photo will look across all areas of LinkedIn.

Finally, click the lock icon to choose whether your photo is visible to your connections, your network, or everyone on LinkedIn.

It's best to choose "Everyone," because when viewers see a profile without a photo, they tend to think that your LinkedIn profile is not a priority for you, lending less credibility to you and your page.

When you're done, click "Save."
