sorry but it looks way too artificial and the lighting is flat. You have others in your port that would be much much better as an avatar.

Thanks for stopping by and good luck!!

I switched it back to an older one, is it any better.  What do you suggest I use?

I switched it back to a different one I was using, is it any better?  Which one of my pics would you recommend?

You have a bit of a unique situation. You want to highlight your products, but you need a model who will attract people enough without overpowering your product. Hmmmm.  IMO either this one:

or the same model with the blue necklace. Once again thanks for asking and much luck to you!!

Hi Celine,

First, what are you trying to get people to recognize? Your legs? Your body? Probably not because you are simply too young. So stay away from those things at the moment if you can. However I see that you have gorgeous eyes nice lips. I would suggest using those at the moment to get attention. IMO.....concentrating on those things.......I like this photo the best

I think that shows your natural pure beauty and would help get the most hits........IMO of course. One other thing, if you do use that photo, use the MM crop tool to make it a vertical shot. Those tend to get noticed a bit better than vertical.

Thanks again for asking and enjoy your day!!

It doesn't get your subject to stand out very well, which in an avatar is essential. I looked at your port and you have some great shots that are sure attention getters IMO

I like it, alot! I actually listed it. You have 2 killer shots in your port that are sure fire winners IMO if............they had the vertical view. Typically the horizontal view doesn't carry quite as much impact as an avatar.........but.........would it make me look? Probably yes

thanks for stopping by Franklin. It seems you have a creative side, and I like that. Is that your best for avi? Hmm, it is probably 1st or 2nd in your port. But I would give the nod to the photo with you and the woman......that carries more "tension" and mystery and IMO will more often make me want to see more


Good Luck!!

Jenna, If I can be completely honest.....your beauty is fabulous! You have a great exotic look and amazing eyes. but your avi does not bring out that beauty. You want your avi to pop someone in the nose as it says "LOOK AT ME"!!  Do you think any of your shots do that? They are not bad by any means, and they do show your beauty, but you still need that shot that people cannot resist. Personally, I think it will be fabulous when you get it!!
