every time people take pics of me I look so ugly I cry. my nose is too focused on and looks so big and deformed. my nose is somewhat average sized in person, but not HIDEOUSLY BIG. I look in the the mirror and am content with myself. I'm not the most beautiful girl, but I know I'm not the ugliest. but the pics say other wise... and it puts me down. The other day I decided to take a video with the same camera... in the video I came out just the way I look in the mirror...normal... why is that? what do I really look like? my camera or mirror?

That's all in your head.
If it was objectively an issue, then the pics and videos should have looked the same, and the mirror different.
After all, the mirror is showing you an altered view of yourself (left and right are transposed) but the pics and videos are showing you exactly as you are seen by other people.
The fact that you perceive the mirror and videos as the same, and photos as different, shows that this is just in your head.0
