Consider including a shot with your pet, for instance.

You will find the resources you need to add, edit and delete photos in the black navigation bar on the right side of your screen under “Manage Profile,” “Photos.” The photo upload option is available from all devices, including desktop, tablet and mobile.

POZ Personals now uses one size for all images. What you see in the cropping box is how the photo will appear on your profile. Photos set to “Active” will appear on your public album.  Click on the top right icon of each photo to set it as Avatar Profile, to submit for Catch of the Day or to edit or delete it. Please note that only one photo at a time can be set as your Avatar Profile or submitted for Catch of the Day, but you can change them as often as you like.
