The picture is not complimentary to you.

The photo does not compliment you.

Or there are any other expressions.  I once saw the work compliment used for such a meaning.

two ways to describe it:

1) you are not photogenic.
2) You look greater in person than in pictures.

And maybe also "the picture does not do you justice".

But the situation is when I saw someone's post in another CD forum.  There is a boy who showed his picture in his post.  The picture is really not so flattering (???).  He actually looks like a phantom in a ghost movie.  It makes you think of murder, or ghost or whatever such kind of things.

photogenic means a person looks good in almost every picture, but in this case,

just not good in this picture.

yeah, you can say it like that and I deem it is very idiomatic too.
