seems fair !
And the complex and low self-esteem it gives teenage girls is well documented. Just sayin….

photoshop and airbrushing is the most ridiculous thing in the world for the fashion and model industry! Why do they sell what isnt real???? These woman and men have blemishes they have flabby bits and scars and strecth marks!
I'm tired of seeing impossible bodies and freaky faces.
Oh heck yeah! I'd rather see a real athlete perform and I'd prefer to see a 'real' person instead of an airbrushed/photoshopped creation.
i thought this photo was crazy! Her ribs are gone !
Mother oh photoshop!!!!
I like the first picture better.
Was this picture genuine? like was it in a magazine ir something?? or is it just an example of what is done to make models look "perfect"
That is a seriously bad photoshop job. But on subject, yes, I think it needs to be illegal or at minimum regulated for models. (Yeah, okay, get rid of your facial blemishes. But don't photoshop out the 5-10 extra pounds that make you look less anorexic.)
+Jenny Mackie They sell what's not real because it makes more money 😛
lol this makes me laught
+Tim Butram which is sad! there are real people out there who become mentally depressed and self abusing themselves through eating disorders because of what the media puts out there every second of the day!
At the end of the day its lots of money….or your health
it very fair
I would pick healthy over money! ANY DAY nothing more important than looking after yourself
its ridiculous how magazines and TV promote and show all these tips and tricks to healthy skin e.t.c when infact the woman they see dont use the product, they are just airbrushed and photoshopped…..
This was from an article in +Glamour Magazine… there is a service that will touch up your vacation photos for you.. so you look.. photoshopbarfriffic
do you speak french or deutsch
I totally know what you mean. I've spent all morning looking for things that are just unpleasant to look at. Scars, body fat, you name it. I would so rather see that, than pleasant things. Makes me want to buy stuff.
What if the "after" was actually the "before" and they were just two models looking for a more normal vacation picture…would we be so quick to judge? Maybe it's not our outsides that need to be Photoshopped…but our insides. Just kidding that was ridiculous.
Photoshop would be cool to touch up here and there but not to exaggerate it like this!
Wouldn't that just encourage more unhealthy practices among models? What's probably needed is regulation like in Spain – where models must be a healthy weight for their height, and then we get rid of Photoshop, too. Otherwise it's almost worse, as more and more will try to achieve this unrealistic look without benefit of photomanipulation!
+David Sarachman you made me giggle! Wouldnt that be something though lol
+Travis Armour that is the most ignorant statement ive ever heard on this topic. Removing a persons rib cage so she looks 'sexy' is a media constructed device… its not beautiful. Society defines beauty. but this is the first time in history that "beauty" is actually not physically achievable or realistic. (besides maybe the corset phase) 🙂
Why would anyone think that's real??
This photo was edited with photoshop?
I think we need legislation that whenever a company uses subtle Photoshopping in a picture that they need to include something ridiculously awesome to identify the manipulation. Like In the above shot behind six pack and no ribs they put in the background Godzilla eating a taco. That way kids would no something was fishy…besides the taco.
+Amanda Blain I am so down with this concept. Resharing. This trend really disturbs and bothers me.
Honestly I start foaming at the mouth when I start thinking about this one…just needs to stop.
Philosorator said it best methinks
So what can we do to stop this? Stop buying products that uses anorexic models and/or photoshops them… Oh, wait… Nothing left to buy then! There has been lots of examples of bad photoshop jobs, where models suddenly looses an arm, looses some ribs, a leg, etc, but people in general don't care 🙁
wait, you mean those abs aren't real?? I've been busting my ass for the last 20 years when I could have just… oh gawd, I've been doing it all wrong!
I agree that it should be or at least maybe have a warning caption saying it has been photo shopped. I understand the concept of magazine and the fashion world wanting to have everything look perfect in order to make a profit but that is not the real world we live in and so many women are having major plastic surgery just to get that 'perfection' and the ages are getting ridiculously younger.
I hate the wrinkle cream ads that are Photoshopped. Diane Keaton 66 and hardly a wrinkle.
Wilhelmina told of having her back teeth removed to get that "hollow cheeked" look.
Heck naw lol 😀 that is too funny:D
photoshop SHOULD be illegal for some people…
yeah!!! I agree
It should be against the rules.
