Hey! Thanks a lot for sharing these helpful tips and insights. I am curious to know why you think that pictures of you should never be put on the resume? I've seen this advice a couple of times before, does it have something to do with prejudice?

Yes, that's exactly why. There are some countries where this is the norm though. I think it's common in a lot of European countries to include a picture.

Mostly because of prejudice yeah, but you can also think about it this way: a resume is something people will analyze to judge you for a role. Do you want your looks to be one of the criteria they take into account?
