The picture Dave used to create the banner is clear and bright. It is easy to see that Terri's hair appears to be balding on the left side of her head.


Below is the same picture doubled twice in Irfanview: 


The enlarged version of the picture that Dave Pritchard made into a banner reveals that either this picture was altered or Terri had an obvious balding condition. I strongly doubt that Terri had a medical condition that created noticeable hair loss which she chose to accentuate by wearing her hair pulled back from her face! 

Pamela Hennessey is presently the webmaster of Apparently she has uploaded another version of the picture used in the original banner. The banner below is featured on every page on Terri's face is not flesh-toned in this particular banner.

Instead, her complexion is colored so that she blends in with the background. This gives Terri a washed-out appearance. Why was a flattering picture of this lovely woman altered so that her face blends in with the banner? 

Observe the enlarged banner below. Terri's left iris (colored part of her eye) has a strange, elongated shape. It has been altered so that it covers almost her entire eye, extending even into the outer corner. Notice the vertical white line that has been drawn through Terri's iris in the enlarged banner below. Terri's right eye has also been noticeably altered in this picture.

The elongated iris alteration was also done to this picture.

Below is the same picture doubled twice in Irfanview:


This photo is also different from the one Dave Pritchard originally uploaded. Terri's hair is darker. It is still easy to see the bald spots on her head. 


Terri was also made to look as though she is balding in this picture.

Terri's eyes were also severely distorted in this picture.
