Can you really tell if you like someone by just looking at a picture? Benjamin Le, a Associate Professor of Psychology at Haverford College in Pennsylvania and co-founder of scienceofrelationships.com: Initial physical attraction is a really important first step so starting with pictures actually makes some sense.
