Thanks guys! Silly question, but how in the heck do you guys post such appetizing pics of your food without marks on your plate? I try to clean up the drippy edges, but yet I always can see the swipe marks on the edges of my plate from my towel in my pictures. Is it because most of my plates have a matte finish? Such a small detail, yet it annoys the crap out of me!

I don't know about anyone else, but any drips get incorporated into the puddle. I also set two plates, the cleaner looking one gets a photo op.

Hmmm, maybe that just means that I need to put more food on the plate!!! No empty spots = no swipe marks!
