Hooray for Israel - Photoshop Law

Friday, January 04, 2013

Wow - The Nation of Israel is stepping out on the presentation of models who are entirely too thin - anorexic, below 18.5% BMI, etc - and also requires magazines fashion pages to disclose if any photoshopping was done to "trim off weight" from appearance of models pictures...

Here are just a couple articles - I'm sure more will be showing up as the law ripples through the fashion industry.

    They say it won't fix the problem but it is a start to it.

    I find it ironic that the ad I'm seeing right now on the side of your blog post has a freckled woman who then morphs into a smooth skinned beauty, with a caption that says "The fastest, easiest retouching software. Free Trial!"

    It would be nice if all magazines used real people, as they are. Beauty comes in all ages, shapes, and sizes.

    Too bad so many young ladies and women use photoshopped mag pictures as idolized images to determine what they THINK they SHOULD look like.
    Have you heard the updates that being slightly overweight is considered healthier for you?

    Research...What next?
