    I don't look fatter in pictures, but I look uglier. I either look stoned, or inflicted with some sort of palsy.

    I have put a lot of practice into posing. lol
    I used to always stand straight-on for pictures, thinking it would hide my little buddha belly. Nooooooope. You look much wider in pics straight-on then standing sideways.
    My arms look huge when just at my side, but look thin and nicely-shaped with my hand on my hip.

    I'll see if I can find comparison pics.
    I always do the stupid Paris Hilton-style hand on the hip, sideways pose. I feel like a douche standing like that, but it makes me look thin.

    So does mine I have that chubby look to my face which makes me look 12. If I gain an ounce it goes straight to my damn face. I hate taking pictures makes my face look big and my forehead look like Tyra's. There's always that person that wants to take pictures with you at the most horrible angle.

    I look quite frightening in photo's not fat but really angular and if the photo is taken with flash super angular and if its a front on photo asymmetrical - i swear my nose is more on one side than the other. Have only one good side - trouble is i fail to remember which one it is or if i do it can be awkward to ask other people in the photo to switch places with you, without explaining and the subsequent 'your crazy' look.

    yes i have that problem and its so confusing to me. I know I'm not the prettiest thing in the world but I know that I'm not going to frighten small children with my face. The camera, without fail, brings out this hideous swamp creature. And of course, I hate it when people tag these hideous photos of me on Facebook and see nothing wrong with it. I start to question if I really do look like that.

    I'm 5' 5" so I'm note really petite, but I'm pretty sure that the big boobs make me look fat in a lot of pictures.

    Goodie!!! I always thought it was my fat that made me look fat in photos. I'm thrilled I can now blame it on the camera and/or photographer...bastards, they've been doing me quite an injustice.

    It happens to my eyes too. My eyebrows always somehow manage to look overplucked or uneven even though they arent. I'm forever untagging myself from pictures on facebook!

    Well, maybe you're just fat.

    Mine too. No idea why, it's not at all big in person.

    Hush, it's the camera. I just know it is. I'm a Kim K size 2 and those damn photos always make me look like Kirstie Alley.

    Hahaha, it's the same with me. The only thing that consolidates me is that even other people start laughing at my pics and ensure me that I don't look like that IRL. My nose looks much bigger than it is, my mouth is often open and one eye is closed and the other randomly twisted. I look like I am having a stroke.

    On the other hand I am very pleased with how my body looks like in pictures. When I look into the mirror all I see is fat and cellulite but in pics I am slim and tight.
    I don't know which one is true.

    I think asymmetrical features really stand out in photos, much more than in real life. I have a little bump on the side of my nose which nobody notices unless they touch it but in pics it looks horribly crooked. Plus some people just can't pose. I feel awkward as soon as I see a camera and try to crack an uncomfortable smile.
