Photoshop - is it overused?

Sunday, July 22, 2007

Today I read an article that looks at the recent use of photoshop airbrushing on the front cover of Redbook magazine.

The cover photo concerned is of 39-year old, Country singer, Faith Hill. This article is well worth a read, and you need to follow the link just to look at the before and after photos - they are unbelievable.

I feel insulted that Redbook felt this was necessary to "sell" their magazine. Faith is a beautiful looking woman and this touch up was completely unnecessary, and continues to perpetuate the myth that women must be stick thin to be attractive.

Anyway, my two cents, I'd love to know what you think.
