I get so angry when I see obvious Photoshop jobs.

Jennifer Lawrence, looks amazing in the original photo and very fit. Yet, they felt the need to remove all the muscle from her arms, remove her butt and take in her torso. I thinks he looked way hotter in the original.

Then this one...

**edited because the first pic is too big but second is too small to see the detail of the original.

This is why women have unrealistic views on their tummies. She has a slight "roll" to her belly in the original even though she is far from fat. I am not saying flat tummies are unattainable but these images give women unrealistic goals.

Yeah, well, the magazine decides what sells. The buyers support it by buying it. Unfortunately, that's how it works.

I don't really care too much, I mean, I do think Jennifer Lawrence looks beautiful in the before picture too, but I DO get irritated when it's something super ridiculous, like this:

Or like washing out a woman's beautiful skin tone to make her lighter, that shiz makes me mad, a la Beyonce---no need to lighten this girl's skin, she's gorgeous!

Sooo much better before the photo shop. I'd be pissed if I was photo shopped and it turned out looking worse.

This sort of thing is on my list of pet peeves. LET WOMEN BE REAL WOMEN!

I play with contrast a bit on my photos, but none of the photos end up making me look thinner. Photoshop can only do so much, there. Heh.

She looks a million times better in the original...The second photo she just looks sickly. The girl is flawless, she shouldn't be photoshopped for any reason.
