I’ve been interested in the idea of checking my own facial symmetry for a while so when I found a website that did all the “hard” work for me, I thought I’d give it a go. Then I found out I had to have some silly plug-in to make it work so I did it myself with layers in the GIMP instead.
Not a great photo for checking it out on, but here goes…
This is a photo of me from our trip to Burano, Venice on Christmas Day 2004…
This is how I would look if the right side of my face was identical to my current left side.
Droopy eyes a go go and longer too. But woo! no chin spots :)
And the reverse: two right sides.
My face looks a lot squarer but not as droppy. Somewhat like a ‘Guess Who?’ card.
And this is with the right side as the left and vice versa (so just reversed really, although I didn’t do that).
It looks odd for my other side to be drooping off for a change.
