118. Are selfies eligible for the “Guaranteed TCQ” label?

Not reliably, because on some smartphones in order to produce a more flattering photo of the selfee the self-facing camera instantly “enhances” (doctors) photographs in ways the photographer cannot undo.

That explains why...

• TCQ photographers should use the away-facing camera on their devices, and

• viewers are encouraged to disregard (see #8) the “Guaranteed TCQ” label on photographs that appear to have been taken with a smartphone’s self-facing camera.

How can I tell if my smartphone doctors selfies? And what about “posed” photos in general?
