|As a rule we do not crop our member's photos unless the particular photo exceeds the large photo requirement.
You can access your original photo by clicking the "My Account" tab on top of the home page, then click on the "View Photo" tab, there you will find each of your large photos as they were submitted.
Please note that every photo entered into the system is re-sized from the original version.
We create a medium size photo as well as a thumbnail version from the original photo. These are used in the search results and the profile view.
