Hany Farid has come up with a nice solution to solve that self-esteem problem so many of us face when we see photos of beautiful people in magazines— use a computer algorithm to grade how much photoshop altering was used and mandate that every altered image is labeled with this grade. Level 1 is minute changes and 5 is fabricated fantasy.
This of course won’t solve our country’s self-esteem problem, but it’s an interesting way of raising awareness.
Photoshop and AutoTune have destroyed SO MUCH HUMANITY. Ugh. And I love using both tools… but like
most all things in life: moderation moderation moderation.
When Photoshop keeps crashing doing a simple crop, might want to double check that you’ve set that 1920x1200 dimension to pixels, not inches.
several more available by clicking through, but all would likely be considered NSFW at most places of employment. :)
In the humble opinion of this straight male, this type of ridiculous “perfection” could not be more unattractive… approaching ugly.
- Playboy is (mostly) lame
- boobjobs are (always) lame
- Photoshop does not equal beauty
