Usually from above the head with the arm stretched out so the face cannot be seen properly.
The angle is usually associated with the Myspace photoshopping which consists of a ridiculous brightness and contrast adjustment which makes it even harder to see who the person is.
Sometimes used to make grim people look alright.
Person 2: She's hot, trust me ive seen her
Person 1: It looks like she has odd sized ears and boils, she is not hot.
This is usually done by the horribly mangled, ugly, and/or obese users who still want to be hunted by pedophiles, as to make them look more attractive (or at the very least more human) than they really are.
An angle picture usually also has the contrast way up to hide the acne and cigarette burns on your cheap skanky ass. If the user is an emo in addition to the kuh-razy angle and high contrast they probably have it set to black and white with only one object in the picture in color. It makes them look enigmatic, or some shit like that.
Person B: Yea it is, fatty's real good at myspace angles
This is done by shooting pictures of yourself at angles in which you are most appealing.
Jerry - Oh yea, how'd it go?
Tom - Miserable, she was twice as fat as her pictures and had a mustache.
Jerry - Oh man, I can't believe it! You fell for her myspace angles!
It is quite popular on myspace user profiles, in an attempt to hide fat and other undesired features from the camera and fool others into thinking the person realy is attractive.
Generally from overhead-down; the logic is, that way only their face and boobs show, and it's because they're obese. Period. If a girl doesn't show her ENTIRE body in any pics on her profile, it's suspicious. Ask her to send you one of her from head to toe and see what excuse she invents.
Yep, she's fat. ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!
"Um dude, she has 100 pics she took of herself trying to act sexy, yet none go below her boobs. Stop and wonder why, for a sec! It's all a MySpace angle, every single one!"
