I'm sure most people have heard the phrase "A picture is worth a thousand words". But, for those who haven't:
"A picture is worth a thousand words" is an English language adage meaning that complex and sometimes multiple ideas can be conveyed by a single still image, which conveys its meaning or essence more effectively than a mere verbal description
Now, I've personally always believed that doesn't apply to people. A picture can only portray visual looks it can't portray their personality.
But especially in this day and age with technology being what it is. These days there are too many tricks, ways for people to change, alter pics. I guess this is where I need to add a disclaimer 🙄 for the people that will try to be stupid or sarcastic...
Disclaimer: YES, I know this should be common sense, but if it is, why do people still get catfished? Why do some people still complain the pic on the dating site didn't match the person in person... Why do some men and women still send gifts or money to people they've never met online and find out later, it really wasn't a guy or a girl? (I found out from my one niece her brother, my nephew used to pretend to be a female online using pics of his other sister and had guys sending him money and gifts, so it Does happen)
Reasons you should never trust just a photo.....
Gender Changing Apps
There are so many apps people can use these days to change their gender. I've listed some below:
Apps For Swapping Your Gender
Face Changer 2.
Upic Gender Transformation.
So before you trust, think you know who's really on the opposite end of the computer, just based by a pic alone:
It's so easy these days for people to alter/change their pics. Which I personally don't do. Yet, that hasn't stopped users on here from editing/photoshopping my profile pic (without my knowledge or permission), once in a reply to one of my questions, once to create a fake profile/account and once to post a question.) and those are only the instances I know about, I'm not stupid enough not to realize there could be more I haven't caught) Which is just another reason, not only don't just trust a pic, be careful with the pics you put online and who you send pics to, cuz you never know what people may do with those pics.....
Even when people don't use edits to change their photos, there's other ways to appear different, like using a pic from years ago or using angles to make themselves appear smaller than what they really are....
Another reason not to go by just pics alone....
Some people just aren't very photogenic (I fall under this category) Yet they don't believe in altering their photos. So, just because they don't look so good in a photo, don't mean they may not look good in person.
In closing, the best way to really know a person, is to get to know them in person. A picture of a person really isn't worth a thousand words.
