Most of the sites strongly recommend using a desktop PC with ethernet cable connection, instead of a laptop (or notebook) for your work because of performance and heat issues (notebooks will often downgrade performance in order to prevent heat damage), furthermore a desktop PC will most likely provide you a wider range of possibilities (e.g. upgrading hardware).

Using MacBook Air is not recommended for online streaming as it’s specifications do not meet the site’s requirements and has no proper Ethernet cable port available, which would be needed for a stable internet connection.

The sites use Flash technology to stream live camera feeds and to operate the chat interface on the site. For this reason, it is crucial to have the latest Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer. Chrome comes with a built-in flash player but for other browsers, you may install or update it if necessary.

To be able to stream on the site you will need a camera with 1920×1080 pixels resolution which can stream at a 30 frames per second (FPS) rate or higher. Most sites recommend BCC950 HD webcam.


For most of the sites, a computer, a camera and internet connection is pretty enough in order to get online, after your account is active. But for sites like, that is not enough. Their requirements are high and complex in order to get a Good rating and a bigger exposure on the site, meaning making more money. They do explain in detail what you need and their recommendations in order to become a great model, making lots of money.
According to them, you must accomplish the following:

The main goal would be to have balanced lighting conditions in your room, which produce a high quality video stream without pixelation, blurriness or unnatural colors.

We would like to advise compact fluorescent light (CFL) with daylight balanced 5500K color temperature. Standard bulb lights have a yellowish tone and can create an unnatural skin color.

Never should you have any natural light in the room, as it will always have a negative impact on the video stream’s quality.

Lighting setup is always unique in each case, where the room, the colors, the furniture all play a part in how strong the lamps need to be and where they must be positioned. Our guides below may not work in all scenarios.

Keep in mind that a camera requires more light than the human eyes, therefore you should verify your lighting in your video stream and not by how you see it in the room.

Pay attention to strong shadows. The closer you are to the background wall, the stronger your shadows will be. Ceiling lights, depending on their position and strength will create a nice contour around you, but might make your forehead and shoulders shine, as well as create strong shadows of the objects on the background wall.

Low budget Category
Table and ceiling lights – $45 – $75

This category doesn’t require professional equipment, might not give you the best results, but it is a good place to start. You will need at least two table lamps and a ceiling light. Each table lamp should have a minimum 32W compact fluorescent bulb, but be sure that you have the option of replacing them with up to 60W compact fluorescent bulbs. The ceiling lamp must be the same kind of bulb as your table lamp (minimum 32W), but depending on your room, you might even need a 100W compact fluorescent bulb.

2 table + 1 ceiling
Place the two table lamps on the far side of your table corners, facing towards you and a little bit towards the background. The ceiling light should be above and in front of you.

3 table + 1 ceiling
Place the two table lamps on the far side of your table corners, facing towards you and a little bit towards the background. The third table lamp should be above the monitor directly in front of you. The ceiling light should be above and in front of you.

4 table + 1 ceiling
Place the two table lamps on the far side of your table corners, facing towards you and a little bit towards the background. Place two other table lamps on a night stand or other furniture on your left and right side. The ceiling light should be above and in front of you.

Medium budget Category (recommended)
Umbrella and ceiling lights – $60 – $400

This category requires some semi-professional equipment, which can give you professional results and can be used in the creation of stunning Fan Club and Contest content.

Umbrella lights are different from table or general lamps, because they diffuse the light and make it softer. Since they provide a higher output, they can light a larger space, depending on their bulbs’ strength and placement. You can purchase umbrella lights individually or in kits from online stores.

There are several types of umbrellas on the market, but we would like to recommend the white (diffusion) or the silver (reflection) types. Silver can be used one way, with the light reflecting back from inside the umbrella, while the white can go through the umbrella’s fabric. The silver type will give you a stronger, more direct light, while the white gives you a softer light.

There are umbrella lights with 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 bulb sockets, ranging from 45W to 150W for each socket. The number of bulbs and their strength required will depend on your room size and colors in it. If you are using a single socket light, start with 45W compact fluorescent bulbs but be sure that it can hold an 85W or stronger compact fluorescent bulbs if needed, otherwise use lights with multiple sockets.

We recommend white umbrella lights, since it will allow you to better light a big portion of your room. You can purchase umbrella lights with one bulb or even up to five bulbs. You can point the white umbrella towards or away from you, this will depend on how much light you need on yourself. Experiment with the setup, position, height, angle and bulb intensity of the umbrella light to get the best results.

Depending on the number of umbrella lights, their strength and position, a ceiling light might not be required.The ceiling lamp, if used, must be the same kind of bulb as your umbrella light’s bulbs, minimum 32W, but depending on your room, you might even need a 100W compact fluorescent bulb.

1 umbrella + 1 ceiling
Place the umbrella light in front of you, pointing towards you. The ceiling light should be above and in front of you.

1 umbrella + 1 table lamp + 1 ceiling
Place the table lamp on one of the far side of your table corners, facing towards you and a little bit towards the background. Place the umbrella light on the opposite side, at the corner of your table, pointing towards you and a little bit towards the background. The ceiling light should be above and in front of you.

2 umbrella + 1 ceiling
Place the umbrella lights on the left and right sides, at the corner of your table, pointing towards you and a little bit towards the background. The ceiling light should be above and in front of you.

3 umbrella + 1 ceiling
Place two umbrella lights on the left and right sides, at the corner of your table, pointing towards you and a little bit towards the background. Please note, that depending on the size of your room, you might need to place on of these side lights further away or use a lower intensity bulb. Place the third umbrella light directly in front of you, pointing towards you. The ceiling light should be above and in front of you.

High budget Category

For razor sharp video streams, you can replace the umbrella lights with softboxes and hair light.

The equipment used in this category will be a great accessory in the creation of your Fan Club and Contest content as well.

For the green screen you also need two extra lights directed on the green screen so there will be no shadows on it whatsoever.

In general
For all categories the same quality and composition requirements apply:

The quality has to be excellent, crystal-clear sharp images are required.
The composition of the image must resemble a magazine cover. It has to be tasteful, elegant and neat.
Professional, studio photo shoots are welcomed and highly encouraged.
Both of these requirements have to be fulfilled. A good quality photo taken in someone’s simple living room is NOT acceptable.
Only the registered person(s) can appear in the pictures.

Most common mistakes regarding quality
Pictures taken by a web camera or mobile phone: Unfortunately, these images do not meet the quality requirements. We strongly recommend the use of a digital camera. If you do not yet own a digital camera you may consider borrowing one from a friend or visiting a professional photographer.
Ask for help from someone who has some knowledge about photography: Whether you have your pictures taken in a professional studio or at home, make sure that the person who is taking your photo has some proficiency, as a minimal knowledge about how to set the lighting conditions and composition can make big differences.

Sharp and Clear Images
By setting the image quality to the highest you can avoid ending up with over compressed, below-standard pictures which may keep the Members away from entering your room. No matter how great Model you are, a pixelated, grainy photo always makes a bad first impression.

Please feel free to use online picture editing tools to optimize your image. There are many popular image-sharing websites that offer the option of editing and optimizing your picture with one click, so you can bring out the best of your pictures.

Blurred, fuzzy, grainy photos are not pleasant to look at, it is impossible to appear attractive and sexy if the outline of your face and body are not visible.
Web cameras are not suitable for taking high quality profile pictures. We strongly recommend to use a digital camera.
Selfies, images when you are holding the camera in your hand, also give an unprofessional impression. Please either visit a professional photographer or ask someone to take a picture. You may focus on looking the best on your photo instead of worrying about handling the camera.

Photo manipulation
Please do not edit your photo after taking it, since extra images, texts, icons or heavy modifications might draw the visitors’ attention. Instead of focusing on you, they will focus on the animation. Your best bet is to be in the center of attention. Please also keep in mind that additional frames, time stamps and various logos (including the Jasmin logo) are not acceptable either. We neither accept rotated pictures.

Image Size
Changing the size of the photo by adjusting the aspect ratio will result in distorted pictures. Please properly crop the picture to get the desired size, it is recommended to use the genuine version of the taken picture.

Lighting conditions
Setting up proper lighting conditions is very important. Here are some useful tips for the perfectly lit picture:

Avoid standing in front of a window or a lamp.
Try taking the picture so that the light comes from behind the camera.
Avoid shiny materials in the background which may reflect the flash.
Your picture should not be yellow and neither too dark or too bright.

Composition Requirements
Once you are sure that the quality meets the requirements, you may start focusing on the composition of your picture. The goal is to create a tasteful, attractive image, that gives a professional impression.

Common mistakes that you may pay extra attention to:

Make sure that your head and face are visible on the picture, pictures of your individual body parts may not be accepted as a Profile Picture.
Avoid missing part of your head from the image, we cannot accept scalped, headless photos.
Pay attention to the background, a chaotic background is not appealing, but standing in the corner of the room or in front of a wall or a mirror does not have the desired effect either.
Avoid displaying items such as wires, power plugs, door knobs and door frames, blinds, fans and other random objects in the background that ruin the overall atmosphere of your picture.
Avoid uploading casual pictures, such as those taken on vacation, in restaurants, in the middle of your kitchen or living room etc. Try to create an organized, attractive setting so your environment looks just as great as you do!
Avoid poses where your face is not clearly visible, as you might be unrecognizable this way.

Explicit Content
All the site’s rules that are available in your Model Center’s Info section, apply for the used profile pictures as well. Sexually provocative contents or usage of sex toys are unacceptable, since the main goal of these photos is to tease the visitors without revealing too much, and invite them into your Private room for more.

Posing and uploading erotic pictures is acceptable as long as they are not revealing or sexually explicit.

Intimate Parts
Displaying breasts is acceptable in case of the Erotic profile photo, although the appearance of other intimate body parts (genitals) are not allowed for either genders. Exposing erection should be avoided for all male performers. We neither accept pictures where pubic hair is visible.

Sex Toys
Sexual Toys may appear in the images, as long as they are not in use, and do not appear in an explicit way.

With that said, please keep in mind to follow the rules of each site, in order to become a successful webcam model.
