Like many of you, I’m on a lot of video calls lately — either attending meetings and webinars or running them myself — and I hate the way my webcam makes me look. Even with the blinds open and a light on during the day in my study, the image from my feed is grainy, the colors are washed out, and it all just looks rather unpleasant.

Here, see for yourself. Would you want to chat with this face multiple times a week, every week?
