In regards to the magazine discussion that we had in class, I do not think that there is an issue with Photoshop whether it be for a guy or a girl. The photographer is after a certain image, and if the person that is modeling in the photo cannot produce that image, than the photographer should have the right to alter the image to achieve the look that they are after. I also agree with the idea that "sex sells" because its societies guilty pleasure. I do not see the harm in altering a photo to make it more appealing because magazine companies want to sell their products and get advertisements so that they can make a profit. Similarly for advertising companies they want to make their images as appealing as possible because it will promote their product or service more efficiently and allow them to make a profit. So in the end I think that photoshoped images has less to do with the actual people being photographed, but rather the statement the image can say once altered to the photographers ideal standard. What are your thoughts on peoples images being altered to sell a product and/or service?
