New Profile Search Results and Image Uploader

Our profile search results page has a new look with bigger profile image sizes and we've released a new profile image upload process that includes a cropping feature to create a better-looking, standardized search icon. To ensure that your contractor profile displays correctly in our search results, please update your profile image using this new process if you have not already done so.

To update your profile image:

  1. Log into your Elance account.
  2. Click on your username in the top right, and navigate to Profile.
  3. Click the edit button below your profile image to begin the image upload process.

Your image matters to prospective clients; a good thumbnail can inspire more confidence and generate more interest in your profile when clients see the new search results, pictured below:



After the update, check out the article "Creating a Great Elance Profile" for tips on how to create a profile that shines.

Web & Programming Becomes IT & Programming
We’ve renamed the “Web & Programming” category to “IT & Programming” in order to more accurately represent the diversity of skills, including networking and security-related jobs on Elance. In addition, we've also created a new subcategory specifically for Networking & Security.

For more information on our new features, please make sure you stay tuned to the Elance Blog for future announcements.
