This is a very terrible picture. It looks like it has been "stretched" width wise to me. Anyone else agree? Or does the freep just have so many pictures it can easily choose real bad ones?

ARe you suggesting that the picture was made wider to emphasis that she has a big mouth?

Depends on the lens that was used.....because she is tiny she is difficult to photograph. I do not believe the image was p-shopped except for flattening out the contrast. A skilled photographer make someone look taller for example by shooting from a below-perspective with some distance.....I have been able to remove the "fatness" from someone's face for example by making them look up at me as I am on a step shooting "tight". This methodology in the case of some subjects allows the skin to relax, thus reducing the wrinkles they may have.

Coming in direct and tight and close can make the mouth appear to be wider as well....
