Why Post Bad Photographs?

We can't say it better than Online Dating Insider, so here they are, the six major types of bad photos (and we added #7):

(1) The blurry photo. Come on, focus the camera.

(2) The tiny photo. Even the cheapest digital camera takes a big photo, why upload thumbnail sized files?

(3) Big photo, tiny person. All you see is the background and the person is so tiny you can barely make them out. Learn to crop the photo and zoom in before you snap the shutter.

(4) Group shots. Who really cares what a prospective date’s friends look like? Most of these group shots suffer the problem above, the person we're interested in looking at is too small or hidden behind other people.

(5) Picture with ex. Do we even have to explain this?

(6) Picture with baby or child. One immediately assumes the baby belongs to the owner of the profile. Dating men or women with children isn’t really something everyone prefers, so if you are childless then don’t torpedo your chances by posting pictures of yourself with your sister's little kid.

(7) A photo or graphic representation that is just plain ridiculous--anything from a protruding tongue to a cartoon figure of some sort, or worse.
