What are the photo requirements on CatholicMatch?

When choosing photos for your profile, make sure to choose photos that capture you well. For example, you'll need at least one photo that clearly shows off your face for your main profile photo. Other photos that work very well are those that show you doing things that you enjoy.

All photos on CatholicMatch must be:

  • At least 200 by 200 pixels in size to be clearly seen on the site.
  • Submitted in a valid photo format (.jpg, .tif, .png, or .pmp) or imported from Facebook.
  • Clear, easy to see, and not overly blurry.
  • Free of excessive editing.
  • In good taste with no suggestive or offensive material.
  • Modest. Full clothing is required of all subjects in photos, regardless of age or gender.
  • Void of personally identifying information (name badges, off site contact information, diplomas, etc.).

Your main profile photo receives much higher visibility on the site, as it is displayed in search results, on member's home pages, and with your communication. As such, they are held to higher standards.

All main profile photos on CatholicMatch must:

  • Be cropped to show your face and shoulders within the 200 x 200 pixel profile photo space within your profile. If you have difficulty cropping your photo, this will automatically be done by a content reviewer.
  • Show yourself facing toward the camera without anything obstructing the view of your face (examples: sunglasses, hands, masks).
  • Be recent photos that are clear, in color, and without excessive editing.
