  • Your pictures and profile are uploaded, you review them, tweak them, and you are satisfied and ready for the results to come in. Don’t be impatient. There are many people just like you, waiting to get “picked upâ€‌, and the crowd is quite large. It takes some time, but remember you can always tweak it to your liking.
