We all know that LinkedIn is a fabulous tool for making professional connections and building your network. But it can be hard to stand out from the crowd. That’s where the background image—a.k.a. header image—comes in.
This time around, we got these from Unsplash, but you can use anything that is work-appropriate and aesthetically pleasing. You can even include your brand’s colors and fonts to make it really personalized! What’s most important is that you have a background. Otherwise, users may be hesitant to connect with you because your profile can look incomplete. Your background is one of the first things they see when they visit your profile, so don’t be afraid to pick something that makes an impression.
To use one of the photos, simply click on your preferred photo to view it, then click the full picture that appears next. Finally, right-click and select Save As to save the background to your computer.
