Go ahead, erase all the real people / Sudda ut alla riktiga människor bara

An interesting comparison between original and retouched photos. Looking at all of those examples I think it becomes extra obvious how people are turned into wax dolls - which often don't even look prettier than the real person. / En intressant jämförelse mellan originalfoton och retuscherade bilder. När jag tittar på alla de exemplen blir det extra uppenbart hur folk förvandlas till vaxdockor - som inte ens är snyggare än den riktiga personen i många fall.This, to me, is one of the most annoying examples. The gorgeous Jessica Alba - they even cut away her leg muscles! In all fairness, they retouched the water as well... / Det här tycker jag är ett av de mest störande exemplen. Vackra Jessica Alba som till och med blir av med sina benmuskler... I rättvisans namn retuscherades tydligen vattnet också.

I keep thinking I'd be so angry if they did that to me. I'm sure not all the stars want half their bodies taken off either... Plain insulting.

Such a shame, isn't it? The funny thing is, besides the color alteration, I like the first picture better! As for the second picture, who has a waist that small? Someone that had a few ribs removed me thinks. Or yes, a photoshopped model.

That is amazing. Who wouldn't kill to look like the first photo anyway? I wonder how that makes her feel.
