It is proper Netiquette to refrain from taking pictures of people doing unpopular things. Don't take politically incorrect pictures.
An unflattering picture is one that does not put the subject in the best light. Pictures of people drinking alcohol are not flattering. Other examples of unflattering pictures include pictures where the subject is not smiling, does not have a shirt on, or doing something improper. These are only a few examples. There are many more types of pictures that are not flattering.
Unflattering pictures, are well, unflattering. Everyone has taken a bad picture and wishes they had smiled brighter or did something different. There are plenty of pictures on the internet that are unflattering. The internet does not need any more.
Do not upload unflattering, bad, pictures of people. It is not funny to post bad pictures. Picture networks are not tabloid magazines where photographers try to make people look bad. They are domains for sharing good pictures with friends. Coach your subjects if you have to. Get them to look their best in the picture. If a subject views your pictures online and feels that the picture is unflattering, take it down.
Don't take or post unflattering because it makes us look bad.
