I was thinking that it could be a kind gesture as well, if OP usually photoshopped her pictures and felt very insecure about herself. Posting unflattering photos could've made OP more upset.
As in, it's not certain her father meant to be a douche.

I was just pointing out the fact that she doesn't even respect herself. if op goes around calling herself ugly she's giving permission to others to follow suit

The job if a father is definitely to support his family, but that second one is just a bit shallow.. I have a niece who asks me if she is pretty and cute all the time, the girl is 4 and already has a complex.

You're dad can use photoshop on all the photos he wants. It doesn't hide the fact that he's an ass for not accepting how you look, and needing to change how you look before posting it.

A little photoshop to make you look better is okay, but he shouldn't be heavily photoshopping a photo. It's a picture of you, and he's got problems if he is embarrassed to post pictures of you without changing them.

The only acceptable photoshopping is touching up the photo itself, like removing red eye or sharpening the entire shot. If he's using it to make her "look better", he's too concerned with her outer beauty to be considered an honorable father.

#19 What if OP were to have had a huge breakout recently or something similar? Then it would have been acceptable to edit that out. Not saying it's right for him to have heavily photoshopped her pictures because that is horrible but I think it's fine to edit minor things that would embarrass the person to have posted (bad break outs for example) not to necessarily make them look better but just to save the person of whom the picture was taken the embarrassment of all of the dad's friends seeing it. So really all I'm trying to say is there are some instances where minor changes are ok but he should never have heavily photoshopped them he should be proud of how she looks regardless. I apologize for being so long winded though!

Thank you! As far as photoshopping goes, little touches are fine, and even encouraged.
On acne, for me personally, I would want to show her that acne isn't a big deal, and she shouldn't feel embarrassed of one or two pictures of herself with acne in them. God knows I have plenty of pictures with bad acne. But I would say it's okay to photoshop out acne if that's okay with her, and especially on important photos, like yearbook pictures. That's the image that everyone is going to remember you by, if you're not okay with the acne, then photoshop it out.

They're *not* the same. Re-read Tree's comment, it's implied it's okay to make changes to the subjects of the shot rather than the dynamics or attributes of the shot itself.
