A lot of people said they feel uglier when look themselves in photos, this happens to me ,too. I was told I'm pretty but I rarely see it in photos.And I actually think other people looks exactly the same as in real life as in photos.So my conclusion is that IS what I actually look like in real life,and I feel it has nothing to do with pretty...But I have been told by a lot of boys that I'm pretty...So basically everyday I need to tell myself that the photos are lies and you're actually pretty and I basically cheat myself everyday to boom confidence.

a lot of people look uglier in photos. a photo taken at a bad second can make an attractive person look bad.
part of what makes us attractive is how we move and interact, a picture can't capture that especially if you are a pretty person who smiles and poses poorly for photos it can make you look ugly
certain things photograph poorly like wearing no makeup washes you out a TON in photos, the wrong kind of makeup or too thick eyeliner just looks heinous in photos, and in general makeup shows up slightly less in photos than in person making a person who wears fairly natural makeup that's nice in person washed out in pictures
it also highlights our bad features like a lack of sleep
also a bad angle can ruin it
some people also just photograph better. remember the camera is not nearly as powerful as the human eye so the human eye sees things differently and more nicely in a way the camera cannot capture. this is also why some people may look better in videos than photos
people with even straight features tend to photograph better even if the person is not that attractive in person.
so yeah...it is common I definitely look better in person a lot of people do it doesn't mean you are ugly besides in person matters more unless you are a model
and even an unphotogenic person can get a good picture taken. it may take more help with some people than others
