"This commercial isn’t real, neither are society’s standards of beauty." Film by Jesse Rosten, a parody: Fotoshop by Adobé. My Tina Fey post just hit just hit almost 36,000 notes meaning that it must be striking some sort of chord in people. I can tell you that I work with Photoshop all the time (and the entire Adobe Suite) and have mentioned in past posts that one of the easiest things to do is use the “liquify” tools to lift breasts and butts (and expand), make tiny waists, and slim arms and legs. I call them my liposuction tools. I do mainly historical retouching so only use these tools for fun - never on any of the photos I use in my actual work. I also have tons of filters but my favorites are Kodak ROC Pro (color correction and restoration of color) and Kodak GEM Pro (airbrushing but leaving details intact so you don’t look totally plastic and go all Toddlers & Tiaras photo creepy).
DIY Fairies In a Jar Tutorial or Why I Hate Pinterest. Well, not hate Pinterest all the time, but I’m seeing these obviously Photoshopped pictures all over Pinterest with “recipes” to make these magical fake photos come to life… which is like giving life to an Urban Legend over and over again. Well the Blogger of Jude and the Walrus decided to see if she could get the same results with a glow stick and glitter and voila - NOPE. If you still like this project enough to do it - Bottom Left Photo:REAL DIY from Jude and the Walrus here. *For something that works and lasts more than 10-12 hours make a glitter and glue “keep calm” meditation jar I posted here (with keep calm and sparkle artwork), or go to my roundup of DIY Galaxy and Glow In The Dark Jars Tutorials.
Is it real or is it Photoshoped - It’s Aways Photoshoped. DIY if you have Photoshop. Top Photo: Jessica Alba, Bottom Photo: Serena Williams. I can tell you that one of the key parts of my job is photoshoping (but mainly restoration). I have done Photoshop tutorials on instant liposuction, eye color brightening (so so so easy), teeth whitening, blowing out photos to make skin look better etc… Love this link because they tell you exactly what was done and there so many celebrity examples here: http://sastha-knowyourledge.blogspot.com/2010/12/celebrities-before-and-after-photoshop.html
