When you're rapidly swiping through Tinder while bored late at night, it's easy to dismiss somebody based on a split-second decision you made about that person's first photo. However, if you're willing to peer beyond that shot of them on the ski slopes, or riding an elephant, or any of the other annoying tropes, you might be surprised by what you find.

That's because we aren't always the best judges of what our best picture is. Tinder is aiming to solve that, and help you get laid more often, by changing the way other users see your photos. The new feature is called "Smart Photos," and as the company tells it, in the background, the app will alternate the first photo other people see and will reorder your shots to show the ones with the highest positive response in descending order.

When the company tested the new feature, they saw an up to 12 percent increase in matches. "Smart Photos takes into account each individual's swiping pattern when selecting which photos they'll see first," a blog post reads. "It's a system that gets smarter with more input: the more you swipe and the more you're swiped on, the better the algorithm serves you."

To enable Smart Photos, you just need to tap the Smart Photos toggle in the "edit profile" tab. Download the update and try it out now.
