What's duo's deal with the constant insults?

If you learn one thing from duo it will be how to land a sick burn, also how to ridicule the duck face trend.

Do you have to have "used to look" or is it an acceptable translation to say "she looked "...?

"In her pictures, she resembled a duck," was given to me as the alternative to my incorrect attempt, so 'looked like' should work too.

-------- i tried "used to look like " and duo didn't like it . . .

Obviously you made a different error, since what you show us exactly matches the default translation.

"Sur ces photos" n'est pas correct :-(

Here you go.

There is a difference in the third one, but it's not huge.

C'est une allusion a Quatre Mariages et Un Funebre?

Would it be possible if we knew the context, that it would go like: "In his photos, she used to look like a duck."? Like if that was a reason to leave him? I'm just curious.

In the context of discussing a photographer that would be a reasonable interpretation.
