Photoshopped People

Those that have read for a while will remember the video I posted of a photoshopped model going from a normal woman to a "supermodel". I was pissed off because it puts so much pressure on people - not just women anymore - to be that "perfect" thing, the small, thin, blemish-free person that is more likely to make you sick than wealthy.

Yesterday, while wandering the webosphere from the sofa, I came across another video in a similar vein, and it only makes me take another step back and wonder what you can and can't believe in the media these days...


Now, personally, I don't find anything wrong with the original image, but it shows what people can do with a computer and a copy of Photoshop. I've always taken everything I see and hear with a proverbial pinch of salt, and I hope that Tam and Jaysen grow up knowing there is no such thing as the perfect physical image.

These are cool to watch.

I agree with you on the no-such-thing-as-perfect business, but kind of cool to watch nonetheless!
