While I understand the confusion, you can be private and still have photos of yourself online. It is not a "one size fits all" issue. There are many different layers of privacy, who do you want to be private from? Corporations? Advertisers? Governments? Everyone? Celebrities are in movies for all to see, yet many celebrities go great lengths to live a private personal life. However, they can still NOT be private from data collection/corporations if they feed their information to certain services, like buying things online with a credit card, using social media to watch videos, etc. So while a celebrity may have privacy from the general public, they can also not have privacy from corporations via data collection. As you can see, there are many different layers of privacy.
In terms of data collection, you must temper how much/what information you put out there about yourself, and there are many ways to do this. Not having a public image being one of them, an one of the most "obvious" ones, but it would be foolish to say it ends there. Public figures can still be private in specific regards. Richard Stallman is a great advocate for data collection privacy, though he is a public figure, he lives a life that keeps his data safe from corporations. Facebook or Google and whoever they sell data to will not know what he ate for dinner because he does not allow their technology to invade his life.
For example, you can have a public face, and depending on which platforms you participate in and how you handle your data, you can still continue to stay private from data collection and live a private life, if data collection is your concern. It also depends what information you reveal about yourself to the public, as that can also be used as data collection to corporations. I have gone great lengths to stay private from data collection, because it is odd that a faceless corporation can know someone's buying habits or even when a woman typically ovulates, as women are more likely to buy when they menstruate. Most people do not understand how much data collection goes on and how advanced and targeted it is, and many refuse to accept this undeniable truth that data collection is rampant. Though someone can create videos, there are many ways one could continue to stay private from data collection, as they do not need to know every minute piece of someone's personal life, such as when they ovulate, what time they typically wake up, how well they sleep, how long they spend on the toilet (because the GPS on your phone can determine how long/what room you're in), your heart rate and general health via smart watches and even smart phones, etc. These are all actual things companies collect. Moral of the story, privacy is not a one size fits all issue. You have to consider who or what you want to stay private from, and then take the necessary steps.>If she truly needs money she could learn how to create a better UI and get a web dev job or something.
I think you answered your own question, if I needed money I definitely wouldn't go about it this way. But if people who like me want to support the funding of future videos, hosting, to say thanks, etc. with Monero, there is that option. I also like to eat pizza and Panda Express, so if someone wants to feed me a succulent Chinese meal, there is also that option. Never required or expected, but why not take it? I find that every single normie Youtuber monetizes their videos with ads, has sponsors, a Patreon, Paypal donation link, affiliate links, etc.
