Why should I post a photo?

There’s no denying it… photos are important. In our experience, men are 14 times more likely to give positive feedback to a profile that includes a photo, and women are 8.5 times more likely to do the same.

So you can be nice and funny, or you can be nice and funny AND get a lot of attention, it’s up to you!

How do I add a photo to my profile?

You can upload photos to Chemistry directly from your computer. Go to My Information and then click on My Photos.

If your photos are approved, they will be posted to the site for your matches to view. Be sure to crop and edit them before uploading.

Keep in mind that it could take up to 72 hours for your photos to appear. We’ll let you know via email when your photos are available for viewing.

What are the guidelines for posting a photo?

Chemistry is committed to providing our members with a secure, comfortable environment. Every photo that our members submit is reviewed by a member of our Customer Care team to ensure that it meets our guidelines.

What Works

  • A great head shot as your primary photo.
  • Natural light and a big smile.
  • Add up to 49 additional photos after you’ve uploaded your primary photo. The more, the better!

What Doesn’t Work

  • Copyrighted imagery of any kind.
  • Nudity or imagery that we feel is inappropriate, obscene, suggestive or otherwise offensive.
  • Files that exceed 7MB.

We reserve the right to crop or reject any photo at our discretion.

How many photos can I add?

Once you’ve posted your primary photo — the one that your matches will see as part of your profile — you can add up to 49 more photos.

I already have a primary photo, but how do I add others?

Go to My Information and click My Photos. You’re invited to add up to 49 additional photos.

How long will it take for my photo to appear?

Our Customer Care team usually needs between 48 and 72 hours to approve and post photos.

I’d like to upload additional photos, but no primary photo. Is this possible?

Unfortunately, no. The first photo you upload will be designated as your primary photo. It’s important to upload a primary photo first for your matches to see in your profile. After you’ve uploaded your primary photo, feel free to add up to 50 additional photos.

Which photo file formats can I use?

Acceptable formats include .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .png, .tif, .tiff, .bmp, .wmf, .emf.
