Real Women Reacting To Being Professionally Photoshopped Will Give You Hope

Our modern world is literally covered with pseudo-realities that attack our self-esteem. Digitally perfected people constantly mock our deficiencies and blemishes at the checkout line, on TV, on the Internet, and on billboards. 

BuzzFeed asked four women to take part in a photoshop experiment and gave them the ‘cover girl’ treatment. 

But after seeing themselves ‘perfected,’ the women couldn’t help but feel a little sad. 

“As a normal person, seeing your identity change, it’s pretty shocking.”

 “When someone else has done your makeup, your hair, and has directed how your body looks, and then taken away your imperfections, there’s not much left of who you really are.”

The Power Of Photoshop

YouTuber Try10000time posted this video back in February, but it has only exploded online now, garnering over 5 million new views!

Similar to the classic Dove commercial focused on the (negative) powers of Photoshop, the short 37-second clip demonstrates just how drastic, and unrealistic, our expectations of beauty have become in our society.

After being doused in makeup, a model is then stretched, toned, and ‘perfected’ by computers in inhuman ways in order to become magazine center fold ready. 

By the end, she looks more like Barbie than an actual human.

To promote their new Photoshop software, Adobe commissioned a hilarious prank at a bus stop that they set up with a flat screen TV billboard.

With a lightening fast Photoshop ‘magician’ hidden, they took pictures of waiting travelers, ‘shopped the photos into something hilarious or ridiculous, and then sent the image to the billboard in the bus stop for the travelers to be shocked and amused by.
