    Most of those retouches were just correcting the lighting. None of them were major overhauls. A few had stomachs firmed up and little lines erased, but nothing to worry much about.

    A lot of them didn`t have that many changes, it was more just lightening and darkening them. The girl in the puffy blue dress has a hige change from like a square waistline to and overly defined waistline.

    Even in the originals, these women are still beautiful, but part of their beauty comes from their flaws. It`s things like this that make girls go tanning constantly and go on nonstop diets... We`re trying to achieve an image of computer-generated beauty...

    I really didn`t notice much of a change at all. Really bummed me out, actually. Regardless of retouch none of those women are average women. I would like to see images of real women retouched to look like walking vulnerability (which does happen!). None of these women were appealing to me, because none of them looked real...even withouth the retouch. The poses, the expressionless faces, the dead eyes...it all scares the hell outta me.

    Why do they have to edit out every freckle and wrinkle? They still look pretty without all that crud. And if you leave in the things that supposedly are unattractive, it`s easier to tell them apart.

    Most of them there all they did was change the saturation, and levels. They also cloned and healed out part of the background so it looks better. It`s not that hard, if you practice. I can change the background and fix lighting and color problems in about an hour or less with photoshop.

    Worth 1000 had better stuff than this.

    WOW. OKAY. None, absolutely none, of these models were fat, by any means. Models like these make teenage girls bend over toilets with a toothbrush down their throat every day.

    I don`t think even the first model was fat. You don`t get fat up near your ribs like that and it didn`t sag. It looked like muscle to me, but whatever.

    I think the very last one was so pretty without the editing.

    That first one wasn`t fat, they only shaved off maybe an inch of her body... it looks like her rib cage is just not small enough to be that skinny... or maybe she did have a very, VERY little bit of fat on her tummy... but whatever. Who wants to have sex with a friggin` skeleton? Guys? Seriously, would you rather have a stick skinny girl or one with some curves? I don`t know why teen girls get the idea that guys don`t like curvy women. Back in the days of the cavemen, males would go for heavier women because they had enough fat to support a baby. And it wasn`t up until these past few centuries that we started valuing a thin look more than a less thin look. I think that many years of instict will rule out some fashion models a guy sees in a magazine.

    Dunno if anyone is checking this anymore, but I think I need to put more out there than `The first ones looked better` and throw some real thought onto this.

    ISaid: It wasn`t a lump. Her upper arm is pressed against her side so it`s `flattened`.. which makes it appear fat, but it`s just being pressed against. Anyone`s arm with a healthy amount of weight on them will do that.

    As for this in general: The changes weren`t as `minor` as you all think they are. Sure, the women were already beautiful before the touchups, and it shows that many women are -beautiful- as models.. but after the photoshop? Now they`re pushing from `achievable` to `unachievable`, but teens and women are trying to achieve that in harmful ways: Tanning, Starving, Eating Disorders.. and it messes up their heads, too, trying and trying and failing all the time.

    An `inch` off a tummy, be it fat or healthy weight is a lie. Some of that was HIPS being taken off (continued in next post)

    ..literal, actual hips. I specifically recall a pink dress with a frilly bottom which this was done. Or the arm thing.. a NORMAL occurrence on an arm be them muscled or just healthy and not a stickly skeleton.

    They`re removing natural wrinkles (a woman`s armpit was edited) and natural markings that make a person who they are, and telling us these things are `ugly` when they`re just -normal-. Even on beautiful women.

    Lastly? There`s a lot of background changes, yes, but those `lighting changes` on the skin? Those aren`t lighting changes.. it`s called `bronzing`. It`s fake. It makes them look almost surreal, and tanned, and `glowy`. Our people are trying to achieve that in real life, without photoshop, but with harmful tanning products.

    Those `little` changes are in fact incredibly huge (Butterfly Effect, anyone?). It`s what`s messing up our female population. I pity us for continuing this practice.

    JaLacaob, I totally agree, and I think it`s great that it`s a male who`s saying all this. I recently read a survey that showed many men put pressure on women to be thin and supported retouching of photos. I thought all the women were gorgeous and looked almost alien with the retouching.

    it feels weird seeing the same picture with slight differences, and having all the major facial expressions and clothing and jewelry stay in the same place when the picture changed O_O

    Firstly these models are in now way fat. Seriously )-|

    Secondly i think it`s somewhat interesting that the so far there are hardly any "real" fat models out there dispite the appalling fact that both the population of britain and the USA are getting fatter (these are the only two that i comfortably know about there are probably more). The average clothes size is increasingly yearly...surely we need a touch of reality in modelling? Instead of this un-realism?

    I noticed that any guys in the photos were hardly retouched, but most (if not all) of the girls were completely done over? )-|

    most of the people saying that all they changed is the lighting are men... it`s the little things they changed that really affect you. it`s those little things you see in yourself and dwell on because the girls in magazines don`t have that. I was bulemic from when I was 12 until I was 14, almost 15. Trust me, it was the things like not having a perfectly defined waist and not having legs as thin as my arms that caused it... It`s nice to know that everyone has that. I just wish the people editing pictures would stop. They mess with so many girls.
