When you're online dating, you want to put your best face forward. And for some people, that means Photoshopping your online dating profile pictures.
Dr. Steven Nakisher, CEO of picture retouching service PicTricks, recently told the Daily News that the key to getting online dates is to sell yourself. You sell yourself like you would with a resume or when looking for a new job. He says the processes are similar.
When selling yourself online, you want to have your best photos available. On sites like Tinder, your photos only have a few seconds to make a good impression, therefore, there's no harm in making sure they look as good as possible.
He says it's fine to smooth out your skin, cover up blemishes, edit people out of your photos, change backgrounds, take away red eye and other minor tweaks. Just make sure you avoid a Photoshop disaster. That will put an end to your relationship before it even begins.
Nakisher also says that since your profile photos are all about you, avoid photos with friends or other group shots, cats, dogs, and avoid photos with a drink in your hand.
