A little re-touch magic

May 1st, 2006     by Nicole Cohen     Comments

A Shameless writer tipped us off to this site, which gives you an interactive demo on the photo-imaging (a.k.a. airbrushing and manipulating photos to make the models look as little like real women as possible) that goes on at fashion, women’s and teen magazines. It’s amazing to watch, and shows you how they change the way a woman looks, from whitening her smile to lifting her breasts and changing the spots of the wrinkles on her shirt.

Interestingly, the site was set up by the Swedish Ministry of Health and Social Affairs. Pretty cool.
