I am fiddling around with resume templates in Pages (the Mac equivalent of Microsoft Word), and one template has a placeholder for a picture. Last year I took some professional portraits so that I could put something on my Linkedin profile, and for this template in Pages, I added one of those photos. I was wondering, is it necessary to attach a face to my resume. Do I put myself in danger by putting a photo in my resume? It's a professional looking photo, but could it hurt me more than help me?
BTW, let me add that Pages has far more professional looking resume templates than Microsoft Word. Any Mac owners who don't have it yet should get it.

I have read that you should only put a picture with your resume if you are applying for modeling or acting jobs.
