Photoshop Page 2
Yesterday we stumbled upon this bizarre cover of Marie Claire South Africa, featuring a Photoshopped version of Kate Middleton to show her wearing clothes made by local designers. It’s since caused quite a stir, so now the magazine has released a statement to explain their choice of (digitally rendered) cover girl.
Yesterday we reported that teenagers were protesting outside of Teen Vogue‘s Manhattan offices in the hopes that the magazine would make an anti-airbrushing, pro-diversity pledge. Now it’s sounding like things didn’t go as well as they had hoped.
OMFG. What happened to Kate Middleton‘s teeth? Nevermind, that’s just some fancy Photoshopping on the cover of The New Republic. Whew!
Back in April, 14-year-old Julia Bluhm started petitioning Seventeen to print one unaltered photo spread in each of its issues. Nearly three months and over 84,000 signatures later, Bluhm and teenage girls around the world have won.
We all know that bad Photoshopping can lead to some seriously hilarious results. Natalia Vodianova’s GQ Russia cover takes things to a whole new (and very disproportionate) level.
German Vogue is launching its “Health Initiative” this issue with an unairbrushed and naked spread featuring actresses, models, and even editor-in-chief Christiane Arp.
Oh look, another overly-Photoshopped ad for something the Kardashian sisters are selling.
On the June cover of Harper’s Bazaar Spain, Eniko Mihalik looks stunning carrying a pool toy in a Paco Rabanne dress. But do you notice Mihalik’s unnaturally long, straight, boneless legs? Super weird!
Now this is how you call someone out for Photoshop abuse.
Is is just us or does Tom Cruise look seriously bizarre on the June cover of W? Let’s discuss.
Now we understand why women fawn over Vera Wang‘s gowns — the effects are simply unbelievable.
Intelligent Life — The Economist‘s lifestyle and culture mag — went where few (but increasingly more!) glossies have gone before: the unairbrushed cover.
The Kardashian sisters have beefed up their Kardashian Kollection at Sears by introducing a lingerie line, and the first ad is really not great.
The squeaky wheel really does get the grease. After asking its readers for their opinions about what role Photoshop should play in creating the images in magazines, the people at Glamour have decided to take a stand against overzealous retouching in the photos they publish.
Still trying to keep up with the Kardashians? You’re going to need a whole lot of airbrushing. In the promotional shots for their new denim line for Sears, the sisters’ legs have been whittled to mere twigs.
Allow us to introduce to the most amazing beauty product in the whole entire world: Fotoshop by Adobé. “Just one application of Fotoshop can give results so dramatic, they’re almost unreal…istic!”
Well, the headline really says it all.
It seems like every other day the British Advertising Standards Authority is banning an ad for being too Photoshopped, but you don’t see the same thing happening here in America. But if the National Advertising Division has its way, you won’t see Photoshopped ads at all.
Why Victoria’s Secret felt the need to photoshop Candice Swanepoel in their ad for last night’s fashion show is beyond us. Furthermore, why they felt the need to photoshop her knee and/or lower leg is even more insane. Fine, smudge out that wrinkle of skin that so bothers the art director. Or add some shadow to her already infuriatingly sharp cheekbones. But mangling her leg so that it resembles nothing so much as a strangely shaped blob of her skin? That’s just a waste of time.
