Just a little photo editing

25Mar09

Anyone who still wishes to believe that the photographs in women’s magazines, adverts, and so on bear any resemblance to reality should probably not watch this.

Sure, this might be an extreme example, turning one women’s face into another’s. But is it really any different from what is done to women’s faces on the covers of magazines every day. Women who are almost universally considered beautiful in real life have to be photoshopped beyond recognition before they are “beautiful” enough for the magazines. And then they’re held up as the standard for the rest of us to follow.
