I really don’t like how we are overusing Adobe Photoshop in this society. Yeah, we use it for effects and to make photos come to life but when you use it to edit photos to remove impurities, that’s when you have to wonder about society. Nothing in life is perfect, why should our photographs be? Besides, what did we ever do in the days before Photoshop?!
PS. Before anyone says anything, I used Gimp for this photo. Also, I don’t use a photo editor to make photos perfect…just to make them visible (ie. photo was taken in a dark room). When I learned how to “airbrush” imperfections in Photoshop as a part of a photography class, I actually wanted to vomit. It’s why I think there’s such an increase in girls and women having eating disorders and self-esteem issues related to image.
