    Sometimes you think you look pleasantly alright

    when you look into the camera facing you. But then when you snap the photo and it flips itself into its mirror image a troll emerges from your screen

    There are very few pictures I take

    where I actually look like a human being, and not an animal.

    In most pictures, I think I look bad,

    especially when smiling. I think this might just be me who thinks this, because no one else thinks I look ridiculous in the pictures. Now, I don't think I am ugly at all, I just sometimes think I look bad in some pictures.

    Its Not Fair ....

    I hate taking pictures of myself cos for some reason the pictures always come out ugly and sometimes I might think I look good so I decide to take a picture and then it looks horrible and when I look in the mirror I think I look ok but then I take a picture and I'm horrible in it...

    I think I take the worst pictures.

    Either I smile funny (or not at all), or my eyes look jacked, or I'm standing weird...it's always something. Guess I'm just not photogenic...lol.

    I'm just a blob, there are no pretty parts,

    no nice parts, no attractive parts of me and my family always wants to take tons of pictures at every occasion.

    I Hate How I Look In Pictures

    When I was 19 I got hit by a car.  I got a Traumatic Brain Injury and damaged a lot of nerves.  Some of these nerves went to half my face- so half my face is drooping. I guess you probably wouldnt see it unless you knew me before the accident.  Its very obvious to me. I "lost...

    My Face Is Asymmetrical

    My face is asymmetrical to look at because it seems like my right eye is not level with my left eye, it's above it, further up my face. Imagine having eyes like that! People's faces can look bad in a lot of ways but the LEAST thing you can expect from your dna is to give you a...

    Most of the time I took pictures,

    I look ugly at them. When I make my best pose for pictures, what really captured in the photos is me being ugly. Sometimes, my eyes are closed, and sometimes, my smile is weird. Just soooo ugly. I hate that so much. I mean, I try my best to give my best pose, my best shot, but...

    Yup

    I admit I do hate the way I look in pictures. Therefore, I rarely click any pictures of myself. Although, I do try to make weird faces and strike poses so that I may look better. But, I think I'm not that attractive after all :(

    Bad Enough In Reality

    As far as appearances, I am going downhill at a rapid pace. When it comes to pictures tho, its ten times worse. I've always taken a bad picture. Red, blotchy and chunky. I've always been thin and fair skinned but the photos show just the opposite. I hate having my picture taken...

    I look in my mirror and I find myself just okay.

    But the moment someone clicks my pic and show it to me, I ****** the camera and delete it immediately. To make it worse, all my friends and family are mad like anything to get their photos clicked (It's FB era) and all of them look so good in their pics. *Sighs* Poor me

    I was in a tree-climbing accident as a five-year-old. I lost balance while climbing and slid down the tree in a great speed. There was a nail in the tree, and it tore my right cheek and lower eyelid. It's a miracle it didn't leave me blind in one eye. The doctors didn't want to...

    How to (finally) Look Good In Pictures

    I'm not a bad looking guy, somewhere between Brad Pitt and the fat Alec Baldwin, skewing just slightly to the latter, I assure you. But if you've ever seen a *photo* of me, you might conclude the range is somewhere between great ape and Danny Devito. So after decades of dodging...

    When I take pictures, I seldom see them again because I can't stand them. Seeing myself in the mirror every day doesn't help either, I suppose. I think it's funny that people always think I photoshop and filter my pictures when it's really due to the flash on my phone! In short...
