You may have noticed a new icon when recipes don’t have a photo. You see this:

Adding photos to recipes just got a whole lot easier now that you can add photos directly from your phone to recipes. With all these exciting new features, we are having a monthly ‘Faceless Recipe Contest’. We want you to show us the products of all your hard work in the kitchen by posting photos to all those great recipes that remain ‘faceless’.

Here are the rules:

Go to the collection of recipes called Faceless Recipes

Prepare one of the recipes, snap a picture, and be the first to post a photo

Post a link to the recipe in the comment field of this blog post

Whoever has the most pictures at the end of each month wins! If there is a tie, we’ll draw a name

The winner will receive a 1 year Pro Membership


How to upload a photo from your phone:

Navigate to and log into your account. Locate the recipe you want. Under the photo, press the ‘Snap’ button and decide if you wish to take a photo or upload a photo you've already taken.

Once you have added your photo, you will see confirmation of the upload below the ‘Snap’ button. That's it! Once your photo has been approved it will be added to this recipe's photo collection.


How to upload a photo from your computer:

Before you begin, make sure the photo you want to upload is already on your computer’s hard drive.

When viewing a recipe page, click ‘Add a photo’ on the faceless photo. From there, you'll be able to submit your own photo of the completed recipe by clicking on ‘add a photo’. You can also click ‘Add a photo’ next to ‘Rate this recipe’.

Select Choose File to find the photo on your computer. Once you find the photo, select Continue to upload the photo.

Once your photo has been uploaded, you may crop the photo by selecting the area you would like to save using the tools in the cropping feature. Once you have uploaded your photo and are happy with it, select Save and Add.

Please note that the photo:

Must be in the format of either a jpg/jpeg, gif, or png

Must not exceed 4 MB 

Must be no smaller than 960 pixels x 960 pixels

Ready, set, snap a photo!

About Me is the world’s largest food site created entirely from contributions from talented home cooks. Allrecipes was first introduced in 1997 by five college students who loved cookies and had the early vision the web would be a fantastic place for people to find and share everyday food ideas. Twelve years later, is home to an amazing community where millions of recipes, reviews, ratings, photos, and blog postings spanning all types of ingredients, dish types, occasions and cooking styles are viewed and shared daily. Allrecipes grows every day as the community continues to share new ideas and experiences. Along with the original site, Allrecipes now has communities for home cooks in Australia/NZ, China, France, Germany, and the UK/Ireland. (Check them out! You’ll find links at the very bottom of this page.) For cooks on the go, Allrecipes is available free on the iPhone via the Dinner Spinner app, and web enabled phones at
My favorite things to cook
Everything and anything! Allrecipes community is an amazing resource for discovering all types of dishes and treats
My favorite family cooking traditions
All of them! How could anyone choose? All year long our community is cooking and celebrating seasonal holidays and special family occasions. Even the dinners we all have to get on the table every night can be a cherished tradition—or will seem so once the kids are grown.
My cooking triumphs
The millions of recipe choices, the tips and advice, the support and encouragement to try new things or rediscover old favorites make using this site a constant joy.
My cooking tragedies
Who doesn’t have these? Too many to tell really, but from each disaster there’s something to learn and laugh about. Cooking is meant to be an adventure!
