Hi! I'm trying to set up my profile as a freelancer but don't want to upload my photo for religious reasons. I did try uploading one with a veiled face but it won't accept. Would love to be a part of Upwork if this can be resolved, please!
Many thousands of Upwork freelancers have successfully uploaded photos of themselves wearing religious garb, including photos with their face veiled. So this really isn't an issue.
But you are correct that the automated system doesn't accept such photos, so you will need to work briefly with Upwork Customer Support. That help is already on its way thanks to the Forum Moderator.
