I'm trying to set up my Upwork profile and the system keeps kicking my picture out saying I'm wearing Sunglasses. I have prescription lenses and they are transition so they change when I'm outside. The trouble is, they don't get completely clear so it may seem like sunglasses, but it's actually not. My eyes are fully visable.  is there any way to bipass the "No Sunglasses" trigger on the upload?

Might just be the angle throwing something off.


However, the aspect ratio is off (the system seems to expect a 1:1 square). Also, you want your profile picture to focus on your head and the top of your shoulders. Try cropping it square and see if that helps (always the chance that the AR is what's kicking it out, and there's a bug giving a bogus reason).

Take your glasses off and then take a photo?
