You can do some neat stuff to photos with Paint Shop Pro, which is a lot cheaper than Photoshop and is more user-friendly.

Here's an extreme example of photoshopping rather than the myspace angle, the left photo is the original.
People do both, the high contrast photos are a famous fat girl trick. It's all a combination of things. I imagine in 10 years, all the most renowned young photographers in the world will be overweight women who learned their trade from making themselves look hot on online profiles

Yes!! I have a friend who does this. She takes tons and tons of face shots and posts them. She looks absolutely gorgeous in them! In real life she's very over weight and though not ugly, no where near what she presents to FB! And she gets tons and tons of comments from people complimenting her pictures...it mystifies me. They may be complimenting your pictures, but they are NOT complimenting YOU because you look nothing like the pictures!

It's those filters that they use before uploading Instagram pics.

Could also be contouring. Contouring is doing your make-up a certain way to make your face appear more angular and also give more shape to your nose, cheekbones, etc. This is created through make-up layers of light colors and darker colors underneath your foundation.

I don't, but I've noticed I look different with different cameras. I had some pictures of me taken at Niagara Falls with my cell phone and someone took pictures of me with their own camera. I looked very different in my cell phone photos than her photos. I also sometimes take pictures with my webcam on my laptop and I look different in those. So I think it has to do with the quality of the camera, angles and different lighting. All I know is when I take pictures with my laptop, I look a lot better than my cell phone camera. It kind of makes me worry for online dating, because I use an online dating site and I always worry that I am going to look completely different from the photos I use since I look better in photos than real life.

That's not really a good picture when you look at it. Everything is off scale. Her basket is larger than her dresser. I think most people who photoshop get caught eventually. It's rather stupid.

I only use photoshop for to make graphics.

If I cannot slap a filter on it or fix it with red-eye correction, it ain't getting fixed.

I have no time to be photoshopping my pictures. That's narcissistic.

I did download this app that claimed it could fix any pic to perfect your face... it made me look like I was 20 years younger. Which? LOL. Why bother with that? I have a kid who looks older than that untouched and she's 13. Nope. I don't need to look that much younger than I am, thankya.

I am cool with filters. They can take a harsh pic with bad lighting and make it look decent.

Maybe they're complimenting her photoshop talents?
