Photo manipulation

Photoshop and Women's Body Image


Why do women have body image issues? Women's bodies look nothing like the Photoshop versions.


Have you ever looked at a magazine image and thought, "Her waist looks awfully long." or "Wow, she has no body fat here even though I have seen her in person."?

Well, that's because the images are so manipulated that the model's dimensions bear no resemblance to reality.

This is a 37 second video that shows you how the change happens. Look how long her thighs are, and how slim her waist is after Photoshop. They even change her eyes and skin tone!

How are we are supposed to have a clue what to look like?
