help me pick my facebook profile pic!

I just got my MacBook Pro and I've been playing around with the built in camera. I'm bored this Christmas day and decided to take a few photos of myself. Which do you like best? Thanks lol

Also I own iPhoto and Aperture, I was wondering how do you brighten only a certain area of a picture. i.e. the eyes. Thanks!

It's difficult to selectively brighten/expose in iPhoto, I know that much. I haven't used Aperture, but I'm fairly certain it's just a slightly more advanced version of iPhoto. Your best bet is Photoshop. Or just set up some lamps to brighten things up.

I usually just ask my mom which ones look best. If not, I ask my friends from Runescape.

If you really want a cool Facebook profile picture, you'll use one of the built in backgrounds on Photo Booth. I recommend either the "Earthrise" or "Clouds" for the best "out of this world" effect.

No, seriously. Get a picture from an outing with friends. Or try to look goofy or fun or something other than ... that.

Just my opinion.

The only difference between them is, in some your head is tilted to the right and in the others it's tilted to the left.

It's hard, because they all look the same.

Maybe try not to look so in your photos... Natural photos or goofy photos would be best for facebook in my opinion... But I also think you are making a joke!

P.S.- Also paint a wall or something!

quoted for the mother effing truth.

For what it's worth, my vote is to put them all into a compilation and make that your profile picture.

My thoughts exactly.

But to make my post useful. I think the third one is the least creepy.

Difficult to pick, because in every one you look like just any random Facebook user.

Why don't you just pick any one and draw a moustache and beard on it with MS Paint or such (why don't Macs have a similar basic program like MS Paint?)

I'll admit that I do have a facebook account, albeit with a pseudonym and a doctored picture (for the lulz). I don't have any one on there but my small circle of friends - I don't want to know about old school buddies thanks.

Anyway even with this I get to see inane 'updates' from people mentioning whatever stupid thing they did today or a stupid chain request.

To make a long post short, even my small facebook universe is stuck full of these vacuous jauntily angled self shots that look exactly the same.

Try smiling in one or just 'shop one with something random.
