PhotoShop Name and Shame – The Boys!

So it isn’t just girls who can suffer at the hand of the avid retoucher. Here’s a few examples below of how men have been altered beyond recognition using Photoshop.

1. Jonathan Rhys Meyers – Not many fans would kick him out of bed with or without retouching, but the subtle differences in improved skintone are remarkable.

2. Matthew MacFadden – Famous for many a drool-worthy role in TV and film, this comparison yet again shows crucial differences in skintone and the eradication of imperfections without making him look alien.

3. Sven Barucha. Prime example – not too much, but just enough.

Photoshop Before and Afters

Now this is not an exercise to bash celebrities…I personally think all of those featured in this article are absolutely beautiful before photoshop! But I think it’s really important for people to see this, especially those who are young or vulnerable.

It always surprises me how many people are not aware of Photoshop, or how advanced it actually is technologically. Arguably you can do anything on Photoshop, and this is why it is so dangerous in the wrong hands.

Dangerous sounds dramatic but in fact the constant onslaught of perfect images bombarding young women is bound to subliminally effect how we feel about ourselves. Subconsciously we will compare ourselves – and we will never, ever measure up. Slowly the idea of beauty is changing.

The link below on BuzzFeed includes some interesting GIFS of some of our favourite celebrities. Some have only been altered slightly – others rather noticeably. What do you guys think?
