.. or you have seen Faith Hill with 50% more hair and 50% less arms on the Redbook cover as ridiculed on jezebel.com: http://jezebel.com/gossip/photoshop-of-horrors/heres-our-winner-redbook-shatters-our-faith-in-well-not-publishing-but-maybe-god-278919.php

I was going to tell you about the Faith Hill/Redbook image, but Leslie has beat me to it.

Sandra said...

I always wondered if the editors got permission (or even had to) from the models to do this, and if they did, how in the hell can models be okay with this????
Okay, some of them I can see giving the 'ok' to adobe away, but others?

I've always wanted to create a commercial that spoofs all the weight loss ads.

The tagline simply says, "I lost 50 pounds with Photo Shop!"

Brilliant!

Where are all these alleged fashion models on the left that have nothing to do with Photoshop?

I'll bet even the Sears catalog is Photoshopped these days.

Mike said...

I think the circle of the models should be moved to the right, almost completely covered by the Photoshop circle. I think that's the reality... Crazy world we live in.

Notice, however, that not a whole lot of men are in here complaining about this. Lots of women are offended by this because we know we just can't compete with fantasy. But lots of men like the fantasy. That's why the magazines sell and why the ridiculous diet fads sell and so forth. Lots of women want to please the many men who buy into this stuff.
Face it, ladies. It's not going away.
(apologies to Mike, who seems to be a different sort of guy.)

I disagree. I think more women put on make-up and try to make themselves look good from the pressure they get from their gal friends. Sure, guys like the nice image, but who are you kidding ladies?

Sara said...

And the magazines goof quite frequently. It's rare that there is an image that is NOT touched up these days. Eye whites are brightened, cheeks glow, backs are smoothed. It's done to men a lot, also. http://www.healthbolt.net/2007/06/20/maxim-magazine-sucks-at-photoshop-may-have-found-the-one/

Jamie Isfeld said...

I model, and I photoshop, and I'm completely okay with both.
Guess what? The photograph is about making the prettiest possible product. Object all you might, the overlap is almost 100%. If we have the ability, why not do it?

Are you going to leave a multitude of stains on a carpet to make your home look "lived in" or are you going to try to clean them up?
