New rule on retouched images
« on: September 25, 2017, 05:13:05 PM »

Effective October 1, 2017 a new French law obliges clients who use commercial images in France to disclose whether the body shape of a model has been retouched to make them look thinner or larger.

The new rule could spur sales of long lenses.

What about facial/hair retouching which is quite common in fashion shots?

Looks like good MUAs will be able to get higher fees.

Body shape, it's about body shape.
