    The Before and After Files #6

    I think this particular Before and After is an example of a true photoshop shocker.

    My waist is cinched in so expertly that the folds of my shirt in the “after shot” look absolutely natural and I went from a size 6 to about a 2.

    My locks are given more volume, when my hair isn’t naturally that voluminous! When you study how magazine ads and covers are made, you realize it’s about more than just taking away natural flaws. They also add elements to enhance the model or actress like making her hair bigger, changing her skin tone, cinching her waist and slimming her arms, etc. to “balance the image.” It’s completely unrealistic!

    2. That IS messed up. When you look at pictures like this that slim your waist down, it does look unrealistic. You always look perfect in your original images, and the fact that they have to make you look like a size 2 is absurd. Not everyone can be as petite as Taylor Switft, and there are plenty of curvy girls out there who stand out and are naturally beautiful. Why can’t you be one of those girls?

    3. what i dont get is if you’re so against Photoshop, why do you still do it? why are there “before and after” pics to even begin with. and even if these are just to show up the truth, its still the photoshopped ones you put on Facebook and stuff

    4. how’d they do that to your hair?

      anyway, I’m gonna be a noncomformist and not just say “ohh the left looks better” just because I know that’s how you really look, but you look really good on the right too and almost exactly the same TBQH.

    5. It is the job of most of these magazines to promote designers and sell clothing. I’m sorry, but I would rather buy clothes I saw on a disgustingly attractive woman than on a not-so-attractive woman.
