  1. Interesting video. I’m sure I’m not the only “old” person over 30 who realizes that people have been retouching photographs from nearly the beginning of photography (it was harder to do on glass). You won’t change the photography world, but you can educate the population reading the magazines.

  2. this video should see everyone, who who buys fashion magazines..

  3. one should insist that the magazines one buys will let you know of retouching, send them an email.

    cheers s*

  6. I love this swissmiss… What’s wrong with letting people know its been retouched. I just assume every image I see has been ‘touched’.

    I also take issue with the ‘hanger’ ideal of womens bodies on models. Linda, Christy, Naomi, and Cindy were all outrageously beautiful and unattainable but they were real with real womens bodies not 12 year old girls bodies.
