The camera, while not exactly lying, can distort the truth! And so can a photo-editing software program. Professional photography has branched out to the area of online dating site photography.
With the increasing popularity and easy access to photo-editing software programs such as Photoshop, the days of posting twenty-year-old photographs, or worse yet, somebody else’s photos on an online dating site, are becoming history. Here is what you can do to “enhance” your look on an online dating profile by simply using a program such as Photoshop.
Now let's take one of my pictures and let's see what could be done to enhance it. The original photo is below taken in natural lighting with minimal makeup. And here are the official contest rules:
- Copy this photo and save it at some static location.
- Edit this photo so that it would look more favorable and preferably eye-catching on an online dating site
- Post the "before" and "after" versions along with a link to this post on your blog
- Post a link to your finished work in the comment section of this post
The winner will get a permlink on this blog.
