Retouch!

"Almost all photos selling something have been touched up: magazine covers, fashion articles, adverts, record covers and so on. You'll see how easy it is to alter someone's appearance."

It's not THAT easy, but yeah, it can be done.

A saw it, and when we removed the cheek upgrades I was like, "Yahhhh!"

That doesn't stop me from thinking she's hot au natural.

Call me weird, but I think the "before" version is more attractive than the "after" in every case except for softening the shadows on her face and the color of her shirt.

They actually made her less sexy, in my subjective view.

They didn't do that great a job because she doesn't look natural.

The scary thing is that on a subconscious level images like this affect our own self-image. Then we end up spending waaayyy too much time trying to look like a 14 year old that has been Photoshopped.
