Photoshop: Stop the madness!

Now appearing in a fashion magazine near you – the “Photoshop diet”.

Faith Hill doctored cover photo (left) and original photo (right):

America Ferrera on Glamour cover (left) and a ‘real life’ unretouched photo (right):


Allure Magazine February 2007 cover with 47-year old actress Julianne Moore (does she not look 30 years younger than that?):


And although this isn’t a fashion magazine, it’s just as alarming: Katie Couric’s photo issued by CBS for PR purposes on right (original on left):

It’s one thing to remove a few wrinkles here or there, but this practice is being taken to the extreme. These ‘real’ women are beautiful without the doctoring. I ask, what kind of message is this sending our young people – female and male?
