amazing the things that can be done with a little editing, talk about creating unreal expectations for people to live up to


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous and talented? Who are you NOT to be?

*edit* the people who think of what to touch up are a bit dumb, though - I think women should have asses, what's wrong with those?

Posted:they're people who think women should look like matchsticks and in promoting that image inadvertently encourage teenage anorexia.

probably just me, but it sure looks like it...

resizing retouching, in my opinion, isn't right, especially if its to a major extent. I have less of a problem with getting rid of pimples and stuff, mainly cos they're usually temporary.

Situational stuff (lighting, white balance etc) really doesn't bother me.

I dunno, some things seem less retouchy than others...

Posted:It doesn't matter how many time people are told about retouching, they still aspire to a completely unrealistic and evidently imaginary bodyshape.

There was once a great piece of advice in a magazine: "Being upset because you don't have the same figure as a supermodel is as pointless as crying over not being as good at tennis as Venus Williams."

And yet who hasn't at some point? It took me 15 years to accept my bodyshape fully. I have dimples. So what?

Who can remember when M&S used a size 14 model in their adverts, which were pulled after a month because people didn't want to see real women on posters.

Madness.


There is a slight possibility that I am not actually right all of the time.
