Anyone with an online dating account will know that choosing the flawless profile picture for your page is a tricky business.

From candid photos to Snapchat selfies, it can be difficult to know what will help you bag the likes in a sea of profiles.

But help is at forearm, as Hinge has released data on the most successful photo practices.

The findings suggest that women should smile with their teeth, fellows should avoid looking away from the camera, and no one should share a bathroom selfie.

Women were found to be more successful when smiling with their teeth, looking away from the camera, wearing their hair up, and standing alone

Data scientists from Fresh York-based dating app, Hinge, analysed their members’ photos to expose which profile pictures get the most likes.

The team assigned 35 unique photo tags, such as smiling with or without teeth, to a random sample of 1,000 photos.

This permitted them to see which tags were associated with photos with lots of likes.
