Reverse image - Done, thank you. Question about facial feature, please?
« on: Tuesday 12 November 13 21:46 GMT (UK) »
Is it possible, please, to "reverse/flip" the following photo, to have the lady looking to her right?  I would like to compare her photo to another photo and it might help to reverse her image.  Thank you.  Lisa

I wasn't sure if it was possible to do that.   ;)

Excellent.  Thank you so much for your help!  It certainly does help to flip the image.

Thank you,
Lisa

Lisa,

No problem at all - it was only a quick click to do it.  :)

Sorry, one last question, in case anyone might know, please?

Was is somewhat common for photos from that era to have women appear to have one arched eyebrow?  I don't have many old photos, but in no other photos are eyebrows so different from each other.  Thank you.

PS  Thank you, trystan.  I had difficultly getting the photo on RootsChat.  ;)  Not a tech-y person at all.

Lisa,

Sorry to hear you had problems getting your photo onto RootsChat (it's mainly the size thing that messes things up) - but well done on doing it!

From what I understand the exposure time was long at the time because the photographic plates were not very sensitive. They would have to have stayed very still while the photograph was taken.

I'm not sure if somebody would have raised an eyebrow in a photograph if they had to stay still for a while? (Perhaps somebody can help us out here?)

Also, bear in mind that as I've inverted the image then the raised eyebrow would be the other way around.

Hi Trystan:

RootsChat has excellent instructions; it's operator error.   ;D

A kind RootsChatter found a possible sister of Dora (from above photo).  Now that you've flipped my photo, it is easier to compare the two women.  They both have one arched eyebrow and a similar mouth and upper lip area.  If a raised eyebrow wasn't a common thing, then the women did have similar features.  If arching an eyebrow happened more often than not, then only the mouth and upper lip are similar.  (I didn't want to post the photo of the possible sister without permission, as it was found on one of the pay sites.)

Thank you for your explanation.  It is appreciated.

That's really interesting - it appears that the lower bottom lip is low at the same side as the high eyebrow.   :-\

It's the same thing in the other photo.  Perhaps they might be sisters; perhaps they just look alike due to the era.  At the moment, it appears that both women are not related, but the photos are intriguing.
