I did figure out what IMHO meant. 

In my humble opinion.

There are many non-modeling-specific abbreviations (like NSFW, YMMV, ROTFLMAO, YOLO, IIRC, IDK, and many others) used when people text each other, in emails, and in online forums. If you want to figure out what any of those mean, just type it into a Google search.  The explanation will pop right up.
