[The Private Chef Guide] Managing photos on your La Belle Assiette profile

Introducing new features to help you manage photos on your profile!

new features photos

Dear Chefs,

We have redesigned the Photos page to make it simpler and more intuitive to use. Here’s a short guide to help you get the most out of this new tool.


To access the page, log in to your Chef account and click on the “Photos” tab.

From this page you can edit three types of photos:

  • Your profile photo
  • Your cover photo
  • Your gallery photos

 

  • Upload a profile photo

Your profile photo will be displayed on your profile page and where you are mentioned in the Chef list. It is this picture that will introduce you to La Belle Assiette customers, so pick a good one!

From the profile photo upload window, you can:

  • Drag and drop a photo directly from your computer
  • Or click on “Upload Photo” to upload a photo of your choice from a suitable location

You can then adjust your photo by clicking and dragging on the frame. Once you’re satisfied, you must certify that you own the rights of the image and then save your photo.

Our tips for choosing a profile photo:

  • It might sound obvious, but you need to be on the photo!
  • Be sure that your photo is high quality
  • A photo that shows your face clearly will help customers identify you
  • A photo of you wearing an apron and toque naturally adds to the charm of your Chef profile!

 

 

  • Upload a cover photo

The cover photo will be displayed at the top of your Profile page and where you are mentioned in the Chef list. This photo will be the first point of contact between La Belle Assiette customers and your culinary universe.

If you had to choose just one photo to highlight your culinary creations, this should be it!

You can then adjust your photo by clicking and dragging on the frame. Like with your profile photo, you must certify that you own the rights of the image and then save your photo.

Our tips for choosing a cover photo:

  • Be sure to choose a high quality photo (it will occupy the entire width of the screen)
  • The photo should be of one of your proudest creations 
  • It should represent your typical cuisine
  • The perfect example: a close-up picture of beautiful dish served on a plate

 

 

  • Upload a photo gallery

Gallery photos are illustrations of your dishes, some of which you ideally offer in your menus for La Belle Assiette. These photos not only let users see your creations, but should also make them want to taste them.

As with other photos, you must certify that you own the rights of the image and then save your photo.

You can delete gallery photos by clicking on the small cross at the top right hand corner of a photo.

Our tips for choosing photos for your gallery:

  • The motto here is “quality over quantity”. A small number of excellent high quality photos will serve better than many average quality ones.
  • These photos must represent your work and/or show you in the process of cooking
  • Close-up shots are better for showcasing your creations
  • Avoid using flash as it dulls colours and creates reflections on plates
  • Don’t forget to caption your photos!
