I'm putting this is the modding forum because it can relate to modding. Many players, whether they mod or not, will "photoshop" their femsheps in various ways. Mr. Vakarian's Noir series is a great example of this. Other great examples populate the "photomanipulation
" section at the femShep deviant Art site. To this end there are several programs used to manipulate photos, the most famous being Photoshop, however it is very pricey.
Here is a list of free or inexpensive photo editing softwareGimp
