okay there is this model on facebook who always posts candid photos of herself on instagram, however in many of her photos sometimes her features look so different from one another. you can't really tell what she really looks like

I am noticing the same thing with regular people as well. how they look one way in photos then when you see them in person they look completely different. are people photoshopping their own pictures to make themselves look more attractive?

Yes I can name more than one woman in her 20s who photoshops their facebook pictures and they admit it.

I know a girl who is always photoshopping her pics, she is dating someone I used to date, so I love to tease him about it. She's super good at it, she's a very below average looking girl and yet she racks up many photo comments (although some of them have been comments about her photoshopping).

I'm not good with software and things like that. All the photo editing i do is to restore light and add tint. Sometimes I wish I knew how to use photoshop.

I dont have photoshop nor would I use it but I have tinkered with 'object' pics using paint. My pics are, well, just me.
I do have a couple of pics though that someone else appeared to have photoshopped but its obvious, so I just dont really use them.

I've done it to my photos a time or two, but nothing major -- just whitening my teeth a bit or touching up a eyebrow that is so light it disappears in the photo, taking out a bit of red-eye.

The only time my pictures get photoshopped is when they're from a cosplay photoshoot. The rest are just plain me - no matter how bad my face looks on a given day.

But yes, there are people who don't let any picture of themselves get posted without first getting altered.

I know a lot of people use photoshop because so many people are BAD at it. lol

Photoshop is the program. Check the price and system requirements.
Adobe.com Site Requirements

Cry/curse. Then just use the free photo editor on at photobucket.



Some cameras come with editing software too.

Photobucket is good enough if you are just cleaning up and resizing pics. They have a bunch of fun effects to just play with too. Its like baby photoshop.
If you never used any of those programs its a nice place to learn. CS6 would make you want to rip your hair out probably if you didn't have a bit of help learning how to use it. I say that based on laughing at people screeching at me to help them use it. Haa haa! You would think they were crying to save their first born.
