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.

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

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?

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

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.

..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.

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)

Well I guess the camera adds ten pounds and then photoshop takes it back off, plus some.
I should photo shop my tummy . . .

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.

>_> I see...so...do they put the extra tummies and fat in a storage bin on the computer for use later?....or...do the feed it to the super models afterwards?
