    I didn't do anything to the current photo, but I have been known to remove blemishes - how at my age they still happen, I don't know! - and I have been known to use a diffuse glow sometimes to soften the edges or even sepia or B&W!

    My DH laughed when I chose this picture for my avi - if you will notice, I have my head turned at this strange angle, but I loved it because I lost my double chin. :laught16: So I look like I have neck problems, which I suppose I must prefer over showing a double chin!

    I've switched to b/w before, but I'm just too lazy to doctor photos

    But if you'll notice...the avi I have right now doesn't exactly look like me I guess I should change that, but I think it's so cute

    Ha! All I did was LOOK UP! I can't believe how fast I can grow more chins. Gotta loose some baby weight (and my baby is two!).

    Oh, and you'll notice that my avatars are always TINY! I planned it that way. I think I'm a "500 footer". I look good from 500 feet.

    Hee hee! Ditto for me!

    All I do to mine is lighten the levels up and adjust the colors as needed. Once my hubby removed all my beauty marks off one snapshot of me and uploaded it to my Facebook account. The picture freaked me out (because I thought it looked like I had a fake tan!) and I couldn't figure out why I hated it so much until I noticed what he really did! For shame.

    Nope, I've just made sure I was all dolled up before I took the picture I usually have DH take my picture when I've just gotten my hair cut/styled, and I actually take time on my makeup...

    I think I just did some b&w setting for mine - which is weird because I always hate how I look in b&w!

    okay, so I see that mine is NOT in b&w... probably because I hate it that way
    How sad am I? I didn't even know what mine looked like!

    I'm usually on the other side of the camera....I hate, hate, HATE pics of me.
