12.08.2003 Photoshop gone too far

before... after...

I found this page on the Ars OpenForum. That’s just amazing! Greg Apodaca, the owner of the site and creator of this image says:

It doesn’t seem natural to me to take out every curve, to airbrush out every blemish, but what the Art Director wants, the Art Director will get. This shows an extreme example of how far an image can be taken.

I knew this kind of thing was done, and we’ve all seen it. I’ve just never seen such an extreme example with before and after pictures. She looks like another woman! What’s scary is that some women will try to look like the ‘after’ picture.

You can find more examples of Greg’s work here.
