    Default When describing someone/something in a photo..

    When describing a photo,
    Should I say " you look good in the picture," or "you looked good in the picture"?
    Should I say "the weather looked nice," or "the weather looks nice"?

    Thank you,

    Use the present tense.

    Thank you.
    Welcome to the forum.

    I agree with bhaisahab - use the present tense. Please see my corrections to your post in red above. When you quote a whole sentence, the quote should start with a capital letter in the same way that any full sentence starts with a capital letter. The punctuation mark after "Thank you" should have been a full stop, not a comma.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
