The short answer is no. In the Tinder app you can't send pics the same way you're used to when you're texting.


There are a lot of reasons for this, many to do with privacy and safety. We've all heard the nightmare stories of pictures landing on someone's phone that they can never unsee.


So it's understandable that Tinder wants to shield its users from that kind of behavior and help people feel safe when they take a match over to the chat window.


You can make sure the other person only wants to see more of your behavior with an optimized profile. ROAST is a team of experts who have attraction on Tinder down to a science. They’ll be able to present you in a way that is scientifically more likely to attract people. Try ROAST today.


But just because you can't drop photos directly into your tinder messages doesn't mean you're entirely out of luck. There are still 3 ways to send a picture within the dating app and we'll walk you through all of them.

Small aside. Did you know it is possible to make your profile more attractive in 2 minutes and get more matches every day?


Thanks to our AI trained on 10,000+ pictures rated by hot guys and girls, you will be able to access personalized feedback and tips to boost your dating profile for good.


You will know exactly which pictures are good or not, and most importantly why.

So, what are you waiting for to take charge of your dating life?

1. Use an image hosting service


This is more work than just opening your phone's photo album, but sending photo links is an easy way to get around the inability to send pictures directly.


To do this, you'll need to upload pictures you're likely to want to use while online dating over to google drive, or another hosting service that allows you to share pictures. You'll want to add pictures that are the most likely to be useful, such as additional photos of yourself, photos of your pets, and photos that show your interests.


From there you can generate links to the pictures you want to send, and then share links in your Tinder message.


Be sure you don't just send a link out of the blue with no explanation. You need to check out the vibes.We all know to much about viruses to fall for that. Not to mention, she isn't likely to open a link if she doesn't know what she'll end up seeing.


So make it clear in your message what picture the link is going to show her. Try something like, "My Tinder profile pics can't contain all the cute pictures of my dog, here's one of him demolishing a new toy I got him."


That way it's clear what the photo is going to show, and she's got a reason to click the link and take a look.



2. Move her out of Tinder to another platform


Maybe you're ready to exchange phone numbers — if so, that will solve the photo problem. But there are lots of reasons either one of you might not want to give up that kind of personal information right away.


Luckily, there are plenty of third party apps you can switch to that will allow you to share photos.


The other person will be way more likely to accept your invitation to chat elsewhere if you’re looking good in your profile picture. ROAST is a service that’ll turn you into the most idealized version of yourself, thanks to their picture curation and profile-writing process. They’ve even got an AI that can rate how successful your pics will be. Try it today.


One easy answer is Instagram. Many people already have their Instagram account connected to the Tinder dating app, so it's not a huge leap to head over there. You can do this by either directing her to a specific photo you've posted that you want to share, or even moving over to private messages within the Instagram app.


If you'd like an app that allows for the ease of texting but with some added security, check out WhatsApp. It's encrypted so you can feel confidant about your privacy while having all the features of a texting app — including the ability to send pictures.


Another app you might want to consider switching the conversation to is SnapChat.


This app was built to solve this exact problem — how to send pictures to someone and still look out for your safety. ON SnapChat, the pictures disappear after a limited time and the other user is notified if a screenshot is taken.



3. Send a gif instead


The gif option can actually be a great first message when chatting with Tinder matches. (Just be sure to follow it up with some text!)


Anyone on dating apps these days is used to the visual language of gifs and breaking up your conversation with some well-placed memes is a fun way to keep things light and playful.

Are you sold on the idea of sending gifs?  Good! Here's how to do it.


When you're in the chat window, you'll find the gif option located right next to the text box. Simply tap on it and scroll through your options until you find exactly what you're looking for. Then just press send and wait to see what you get in return!


A GIF can come off as weird and uninvited — that is, unless you’re looking handsome as hell in your pictures. A good profile will make them respond ASAP. ROAST can make you that profile, so you can skip right to texting and sending GIFs. Don’t waste another minute on Tinder without talking to ROAST first.

While not quite as easy as having access to your phone camera roll, the above ideas should make it clear that's not the only way to enjoy sending pictures on Tinder.
