Muslim Dating: Should I photoshop my profile photo?

Monday, April 14th, 2014

We all know how important a good photo is to having online dating success.


If your main photo isn’t up to scratch then you won’t find too many people are interested in wanting to get to know you  better.  So the more your photo stands out then the more chance you’ll meet some amazing singles.

I was recently asked if it was OK to use photoshop ( or a similar photo editing software) to enhance your photo.   I originally thought that it’s never acceptable as all you are doing is presenting a false version of yourself.  If you start the relationship on a lie then this will only ever lead to disappointment.  However, after I gave it some serious thought I realised it’s not quite as cut and dried as that.  It all depends on what exactly you are doing with the software.

NO –  You should never make dramatic chances such as trying to make yourself look better, thinner or younger.  I’d also stay away from those washed out professional makeover type images where they but Vaseline on the lens.   These just look fake.

YES –  It’s fine to make a small change.  Perhaps you want to edit someone else out of the photo or sharpen a blurry shot.  A background tint can also work wonders and make you look healthier.

A great tool you can use to make your photo look a lot better is INSTAGRAM.    This is a free app that you can download to your phone.  You don’t actually change anything more than the tone of the photos, but there are some interesting options you can choose.  Have a play and see what you can do with it.

Our  website has a great cropping too built in.  You can resize or rotate your photo while you upload it.

Happy dating!
