    I work in a newspaper as a designer on photoshop and they photoshop EVERYBODY. All the models used in mags are tweaked.
    Its sickening really and I refused to edit my sisters facebook pictures when she asked me because I really think that Photoshop is the evil of young girls body issues. And she's beautiful as she is.

    I saw this other video about a model being editted yes, they even made her neck longer and got rid of her freckles etc.. I will try to find the link and post it here.

    I think it's bad they change faces and people... :(

    Because unfortunately mags want 'perfection' nowerdays and even the most beautiful person is not completely perfect.
    Also models nowadays are very underweight and being underweight means that she will have bad skin, dark circles under the eyes and a visible ribcage and spine, all that needs to be airbrushed and smoothed away to make her appear beautiful.
    Even if the photographer is 99% happy with but you can guarantee he'd still tweak that 1%.
    They also make the skin 'glow' with a unnatural perfection and get rid of ALL blemishes that are natural in all skin tones. Nobodies skin is naturally as smooth as you see in mags.
    Perfection doesn't exist. So I wish they would stop making it the norm and distorting young girls (and boys) aspirations of what beauty is.
    Personally I prefer normal pictures.

    its no wonder young girls get such low self esteem and eatinh problems these days, when they have them to think they have to compete with.

    I agree.
    The only tweaking I do to my pictures nowadays is whiten my teeth lol (because I drink FAR too much coffee) ;)

    Aww I would if I could. I did try once to turn myself into Jorden just for fun lol. But unfortunately i'm nowhere near as good as that guy is and I just looked ridiculous lol.
    I only do the basics in my job. Just enough to make me realise just how much PS can change people though.

    She doesn't seem happy any more for some reason.
