I have a work pass with my name, post and a photo.

The camera was obviously broken the day that I had my photo done, I look like one of those Efit pictures they use on crimewatch.

No one ever actually looks at passes or photos, just use them for getting in and out.

But it bugs me, call me vain or conceited but it bugs me!

WIBU to stick a better photo on my pass and pop it back in it's cover or am I just a giant cockwomble....?!

Our photos are used for the online directory so you're in better place than I'd be!! Def overlay the pic

Surely someone else has terrible work pass photos and has contemplated this?

I don't care really was just hoping for chit chat about how awful some photos can come out.

That was all.

My school gecernor photo pass was horrific. I should have done this.

I'm a ginga. I am so tempted to stick a sticker I found of Merida from 'Brave' on to mine.

I stuck a picture of a cat over mine once and was told to remove it...

Just the cats head, printed on a sticky label and just the size to cover the photo.

I have never had a good work photo it's very depressing and they always get you on the end of day one, when you have been stuck in a room being bored to tears about how you should sit in a chair

But I'm not bitter at all grin

My work pass photo 'accidentally' got a couple of stickers over it (advertising some charity day at work). No one ever looks at our photos - but then the quality is so bad to do so would be meaningless.

Do it - the worst that happens is that you have to take it off. Fortunately I don't have to have a photo on my current work pass. My former work pass picture was terrible, as it was taken by the receptionist who was much shorter than me. 10 years walking around with my double chin on display - and the fuckers wouldn't let me have it updated even though I begged

It's even worse than my passport photo, which is bad enough, I look like I have flu in my passport photo...

I hate having my pic taken and I am allergic to the camera! I will literally duck and dive for cover if I see someone get theirs out to snap a group pic. hmm

Where I used to work we all did it! They put the round chip for the door under your photo so it stretched out and made you look far worse than you did normally. Plus mine looked like I was an oompa loompa (I'm deathly pale normally) because the ink was running out in the printer!
Do it!

I'd say do it. I've just had a work photo done and it makes me sick to look at it.

I like my bad work photo. I would much rather have people think I look better in real life than the other way round.

You know when people use heavily photoshopped or staged photos on their work email or Facebook? I always think, "oh that's what you wish you looked like!" and then feel a bit sad for them as in "you look fine in real life, why are you promoting a totally fake you to people who already know you or are likely to meet you? Jeez you have issues."

I have a collegue who taped a picture of Homer Simpson over his pass photo about 5 years ago and no one has noticed or cared. This l, from a government organisation where Facilities are on your back if you hang your coat up in the wrong place.

Mine would be quite nice if the printer ink hadn't started to run out. Picture looks liver cirrhosis yellow, eyeballs included.

I'm doing that face where your eyes are half closed mid blink. I don't look quite well.
Not necessarily an airbrushed picture, but I'm after one that looks vaguely okay, as in not a serial killer!
