We see Photoshop everywhere: in magazines, on album artwork, in major fashion and beauty campaigns, on movie posters and even in our friends’ selfies on Facebook. But few places are more reliable for bottom of the barrel retouching than online stores: sometimes it’s just a few slices off the abdomen for slimming, sometimes the slicing and dicing results in irregular growths, sometimes the humanity is scrubbed away completely and sometimes people just be aliens.
Today’s entry in the bad Photoshop canon is of the “scrubbing away” variety, when bodies are so smoothed, so buffed, so slenderized that they… no longer resemble human bodies:
The first obvious problem here, of course, is the shapewear is has been grafted on and there isn’t a single recognizable human feature beneath any of it. But as your eye moves up, you also wonder: where is the rest of this poor person’s torso?
