A clarification of the rules please. To create better symmetry is it allowed to copy elements from one side of the face to the other. For example duplicating an ear?

In standard editing this is 100% sure a NO.

Absolutely verboten in Standard Editing!

OK. How about the transform warp, liquify, and smudge tools?

Those are OK, although there's some sentiment that if you go too far with warp and liquefy you're headed out-of-bounds. It's a grey area, sadly. Don't go crazy and you'll be fine. That's MY opinion, BTW :-) (I have learned my lesson) (maybe) :-)

Unfortunately those YouTube videos on DIY plastic surgery are over-rated ...

True, but there’s no scarring.

When presenting the "before" we can crop/rotate it, right? So that will have the side by side of the exact crop. Thanks

Yeah, you can do that. Any implication that you do otherwise is just in the description, and it's not a rule that has to be followed. Speaking for myself, as a voter not an Admin, I'd rather see the original exactly as shot, so I can see how the shooter cropped, rotated whatever, but that's just me.

I see your point, thanks Bear!

I don't consider cropping an editing skill :)
