The key to a beautiful, candid profile picture is in yourself, not in a computer. These days it's all too easy to brighten teeth, erase birthmarks, and even shave off a few pounds with a click of the mouse. Unfortunately it's just as easy to take it too far. It's okay to use basic photo-editing software like Picasa or Photoshop to crop, fix poor lighting, or even zap a couple of zits, but the more you use the fancy filters, funny borders, and cleavage-boosters (we've seen it!), the less you look like yourself. You don't want to be that girl who people don't recognize in real life when they finally meet you! You're beautiful for who you are so be proud of what makes you unique!
