Better In Person
Is it incorrect to say, "they look better in person than they do in pictures" when referring to a thing rather than a person? Would I have to say, "they look better up close than they do in pictures?" Or maybe even, "they look better in real life than they do in pictures?"
Re: Better In Person
I'd go for your last option.
If you are talking about a thing, you shouldn't really say "in person (or in the flesh")
If you say "close up" you could be close up to a photo or picture of the item.
Hence the last option.
Hope this helps
