We have all done this; we have taken selfie pictures and cringed at how our selfie turned out. About a decade ago if we took a selfie with a disposable camera we were stuck with the image that was processed. Today we have options. Maybe the background for the selfie is absolutely perfect but your skin looks blotchy or your eyes are unfocused. There are photo editing apps that can create near perfection for your selfies. These filters will make your imperfect selfie appear to be perfect.
Why Use A Filter?
There are many reasons why you may want to use a filter for your selfie. Your picture may have turned out absolutely perfect but you want a different contrast in the color. Perhaps you want to deepen the hues and contrast the lights. Maybe you want to decrease or increase the shading to create a “perfect” selfie. Whatever app you may use on your smart device, you will be able to acquire a perfect filter that will create your desired effects.
Are Selfies Impacting Cosmetic Surgery?
This could be quite debatable. Many people who want plastic surgery or Botox injections are still seeing their doctors. If you do not have a budget that allows for plastic surgery to smooth out those fine lines, wrinkles or blemishes you have most likely discovered a photo app that can do that for you. You will not feel self-conscious about how people view your pictures if you are able to eliminate your problems areas. Cosmetic surgeons are still seeing the same number of patients as before but those who could not budget for cosmetic surgery have now found a graphic option to increase their self-esteem.
Are Photo Enhancing Apps Creating A Disconnect?
It can definitely be fun to play with a photo enhancing app. It is nice to have the option to create a antiqued or black and white photo. It is nice to enhance the back grounds or even erase some blemishes. When you use an enhanced photo as a profile picture it gives a false representation of yourself to others. In some cases you may have gotten a bit too carried away with the photo editing and a client or casual acquaintance will not recognize you in person because of your over embellished selfie.
What Is The Solution?
The bottom line to taking selfies is to have fun. You are embracing the moment and enjoying where you are at. Using photo enhancing apps can increase your self-esteem and give you a sense of pride in your photo. If you are using a photo for a profile pic or business car you will want to keep the picture as natural to self as possible. Don’t let your selfie define you, let your personality and actions be your defining attribute.
