New look, new important info. Please read our new Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, taking effect August 20th, 2016.


  • Are there any restrictions on the photos which I upload to my Profile?

    GigMasters is committed to providing our Members and Users with a secure, comfortable environment. Nude, obscene, sexual, or otherwise offensive photos are subject to potential removal. If the subject in your photo would be considered unacceptable on a family friendly public beach or not permitted to be shown on regular television, your photo will not be permitted on GigMasters. GigMasters reserves the right to crop or reject any photo at our discretion.

  • Can I upload photos that contain contact information?

    No. Contact information may NOT be posted in Profile, Profiletext, or Profile audio/video samples. By contact information, we mean website URLs, email addresses, and telephone numbers.

  • How do I add photos to my Profile?

    Learn how to add photos to your Profile by viewing this video tutorial.

    Or, simply follow these instructions. Log into your Control Panel. Go to the `Profile' tab and click the "Edit" link for `Photos.' Follow the instructions on the next page to upload photos.

  • How do I take a photo from my other website and upload it on my GigMasters Profile?

    1) Go to the web page where the photo you want to upload is located.

    2) Right click your mouse anywhere on the photo.

    3) Click 'Save Picture As ...'

    4) Save the photo to your computer. By default the photo will most likely be saved in your "My Pictures" folder

    5) Log into your GigMasters Control Panel

    6) Go to the 'Profile' tab.

    7) Click the "Edit" link for `Photos.'

    8) On the next page, click the 'Browse' button, in the position you wish to load the photo, and a small window will pop up.

    9) Find the photo that you saved in step 3, and click "Open". The window will then close and you'll be back on the main page.

    10) Click the 'Upload' button.

  • I loaded a photo into the first photo slot, why isn't it appearing on my profile?

    The photo you load in the first position on the loading page will not appear on your Profile page. This position loads the small thumbnail photo to your search results page. If you would like the same photo loaded as both your search results thumbnail and your main Profile photo, you will need to load the photo in both the first and second positions.

  • What size must my photos be?

    All photos must be less than 10 megabytes. Photos must be no more than 400 pixels high and no more than 400 pixels wide. The thumbnail photo (used in the search results page) should be 75 pixels wide by 75 pixels high). For best results uploading your Profile Hero Photo, we recommend uploading a landscape-oriented photo that is 1200 pixels wide by 238 pixels high. 

    To assist in cropping your Profile Hero Photo, once you upload an image, a cropping tool becomes avaialable. This allows to easily select the portion of the image you'd like displayed on your profile hero. 

  • What type of format do my photos need to be in?

    They may be in any of the following formats: JPEG, GIF, BMP, TIFF or PNG.

  • Why are the photo changes I made not appearing on my profile?

    Try clicking on the "refresh" button of your web browser. If this does not work, then try rebooting your computer. If you've successfully changed your photos in your Control Panel, they will change on your Profile!
