I kinda like them actually. Least you know the event was real and wasnt staged. But i can definitely agree with the non flattering photos. I just have to think that its a reminder of a good time and i should kick my ego to the kerb. But it took years to get to that stage. 🙂 She probably didnt think anything of it and just posted it.

I always untagged myself in unflattering photos, as well.. until I set my privacy settings so that no one can see the photos I’m tagged in, except for me. :]

Just comment on the picture and ask your friend to delete it, there shouldn’t be any problems.

For my bachlorette party, I just uploaded all of the pictures and told my girls to go through and comment on which ones to delete – it was just faster that way.

I am getting lots of these coming through from guest-wedding shots, but you know, it’s all in good fun. I just un-tag away on facebook and if it’s REALLY bad, I will ask them to take it down.

(My mouth is hanging open in like, 99% of all of our wedding pics.)

@jaguar: Ha ha, that’s funny. I doubt it was 90% of the time. Many times mine is that my eyes are closed. Like squinty closed 🙁 I’m doing these flickr cards. Hopefully I can control the pictures out on my page….though I’m not on FB.

I’ve noticed that most people don’t sort or cull down photo’s.  They dump their memory card, load to a facebook album, and tag people in them, even if they are out of focus, super dark, or their backs are toward the camera.  It’s just one of those realities of life.

I agree with USER that some people make really awful facebook albums.  The worst are when they post three pictures in a row with the same exact group and a different one blinking in each shot.  Just pick the best shot in a set and move on!  Alas, I just de-tag and deal with it.  But I agree it’s obnoxious.

I’m so glad that in our friend/family circle, they at least pick only the best photos to upload!  

It’s annoying, yeah, and I’ve seen it done lots of times, but… eh, that’s part of being alive in the digital age.

I’ve had friends post sideways photos that are so blurry you can’t even tell who’s in the shot or what they’re doing.

It bugs me a bit because I’m a major shutterbug and take pride in taking good photos and presenting them well, but I get that not everyone cares that much about framing and eliminating blurry shots. And honestly I’ll get so excited sometimes about someone FINALLY uploading photos of a trip we took three years ago that I’ll forgive the unflattering angles and blurriness in a few pics.

I don’t have a general problem with people posting photos that include me, but I can’t believe how many people will post photos that are just downright grotesque.  And then their response is, “Oh my god, don’t be lame, you look fine, what’s the problem with it?”  Oh, really?  In that picture I have a double chin, a lazy eye, and food hanging out of my mouth.  Really???  I am not afflicted with false modesty – I just don’t want you bringing this picture of me looking like the creature from the black lagoon to the attention of all my FB friends in their news feeds.

I get that if you have a picture with a lot of people in it, you want to be able to post it regardless of how I look.  But do you have to TAG me?  God why???  Have some humanity.  😛
