Photoshopped for a magazine
« on: May 16, 2010, 03:40:28 PM »

Well, to put the shoe on the other foot, so to speak, this model was deemed 'too skinny' for a magazine cover, and photoshopped to make her look fatter, curvier and healthier.  Still, it speaks to the same ideas of what beauty is 'supposed' to look like, and/or why they didn't simply choose someone who fit what they were looking for.

Skinny model is airbrushed to make her look FATTER on front cover of health magazine

Mike, The Daily Mail, aka 'The Daily Heil', 'Daily Fail', 'Daily Fascist', has less than a good reputation for accuracy in its reporting. In fact, it makes stuff up & simply lies to suit its editorial stance/enhance/create a story. I'm not saying that's the case with this one, but might be worth looking for another source!

I agree ChristophC, that was a great video. I have a sneaking desire to get hold of the software used, but I'm pretty sure it's a mockup!

I'm sure it's a photoshopped Photoshop ;)
