Have You Ever Photoshopped Yourself to Look Better?

You know when somebody tags you in a photo on Facebook, and you cringe when you see it? I was recently tagged in a photo getting down on the dance floor. Luckily, nothing was hanging out that wasn't supposed to be, it was just a very unflattering angle, resulting in the most awkward, double-chinned shot I have ever seen. It horrified me.

This got me to thinking: It's no secret that pictures of actresses and models are often altered in magazines and print ads. In fact, Gisele Bundchen was even Photoshopped after posing for London Fog, but for a different reason — a belly bump. "Although Gisele was photographed while pregnant, most of the shots have been retouched to respect her privacy during this wonderful and personal time in her life," said London Fog's Dari Marder. What about you? Do you do a little retouching here and there to make your mug more flattering, or do you figure, "Why bother?"
