    What does it mean if a guy's profile picture is retouched or edited? Is this ok? Does it say anything about him? What if it's actually changing his body shape, not just fixing lighting or smothing or removing a blemish or distraction?

    Maybe you should tell people to click on your avatar cause previewprofile just sends it back to their profile. Just saying

    It means I'm a fucking master at Photoshop, and want to show off because I can.

    When people 'shop their pics it's to project a more aesthetically pleasing and attention grabbing image. If all they want is to exist as an online entity then more power to them. If the purpose of their profile is to meet real people they may run into problems. It's a gray area, depends how much they 'shop the image and if they have the personality to make up for those physical inconsistencies in person.

    I love working with PhotoShop...on other people's pics. Mostly to add color, lighting, remove unwanted blemishes. Sometimes it's just fun to put the subject in exotic locales...


    Can you do mine?? And put me someplace in the South Pacific??

    My profile photo is retouched.
    Improved the colors and light, as well as removed a blemish I had that day and fixed my eye circles a bit. Also since I was trying on blue eye lenses (my eyes are naturally brown), I guess you could count that even though it wasn't Photoshop, but it was still fake.

    I think it looks pretty, this is why I posted it. Besides I have quite a few other photos, who are not retouched, so I do not think I am fooling anyone...

    Now if someone alters their body or something, that is a little wrong I think. Fixing some small things is one thing, but pretending to be an entirely different type of guy is different.

    I can never undestand why people would retouch or Photoshop their pictures to make them more attractive or erase imperfections, but ultimately it's their choice and I can't judge them for that. To me, physical imperfections make the person more authentic.

    I'm not Photoshopped or edited in any way, in my main pic (or actually in any of my private pics, either).

    That candid pic was snapped by "Pompano Bill," our local gay community's most famous social photographer, a friend of ours. Posted unedited as he sent it to me.

    And he knows how much I hate having my photo taken and published in the gay rags. It's a joke between us that he tries to sneak a pic of me whenever he can. This was one.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidFor dumb ass homosexuals who are quick to label things out of ignorance the goal was to create a sort of retake of the "all seeing eye" that can be found on an American dollar bill.

    I did this as an assignment for my first digital photography class a couple years ago and my fellow students and my teacher loved it and I got an A.

    Here is a comparison:

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidThe retarded will do as they please, I do not hold it against them.

    No seriously I don't believe that you got an A. I would give it maybe a B-
    Was your digital photography class for the mentally handicapped?

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidYou are not a teacher and could never be one. You do not have what it takes to be an authority on anything. As if your B- has any merit whatsoever. You are just laughable. All you are good at is making retarded inflammatory remarks against other people like an immature adolescent.
    I have over 5 years of photoshop experience, initially self-taught, learned some from an ex I dated for a year who is a photographer, and just recently took college-level courses on it. Knowing how to be a teacher is irrelevant.

    You could do so much better than that. At least I passed you. If I were being mean I would fail you for making such a lame picture of such a simple concept.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidBut betch...you are always mean.
    The interesting thing is I peaked at your profile and saw this:
    "If you have an mind open enough to understand that humans are multi-faceted and can portray certain stereotypes while still remaining relatively normal and functional in society, then I'm sure we'd get along."
    Your profile reads so nice and sweet yet all we see in the forums is the retarded cunt that you truly are.
    Now I did not make this wonderful piece of art, but it so perfectly applies to you:
    [im a hypocrit]

    ya well how else am i supposed to get laid if someone hot in my area sees my profile without reading the forums?

    what confuses me more is when people initially dislike me on the forums and then i hotlist them or something and they end up being like "aww you're so cute and sweet"

    i'm like wat??? i thot u hated me

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidThey are just lying, they do not mean it. They simply feel obligated to say something polite out of awkwardness.
    Guys have said it without me hotlisting them too. What's their excuse? icon_lol.gif
