Hi! This is my first blog post on a topic I really care about, photo shop. I just want to make it clear that I don’t mind simple editing of color or background changes to make a picture look cooler. What I really care about is how companies take their advertisements and change the body of the model to make them look “perfect”.
Women turn to social media for advice on almost everything these days! Diets, workouts, how you raise your kids, clothes, hair, medicine, EVERYTHING! So, if you’re flipping through your favorite magazine and all you see is super skinny models with “perfect” bodies then of course you will believe that you should look like the women in the ads. Unfortunately, we are in a time when most of us don’t want to work hard for slow but healthy results. That’s why you find that a lot of teens and women these days don’t just workout and eat right to loose any extra body fat, they want to do it the fast way. Many people find the fast way to be starving yourself. This causes so many health problems if continued. Anorexia and bulimia are beginning to be common diseases for young women. This needs to stop. Women need to learn to love their bodies and their little “imperfections”. So to get to the root of the problem we should start by ending extreme misuse of Photoshop.
