Worst Celebrity Photoshop Magazine Disasters Ever: PHOTOS Beyonce, Demi Lovato, Kristen Stewart & More

Worst Celebrity Photoshop Magazine Disasters Ever: PHOTOS Beyonce, Demi Lovato, Kristen Stewart & More | The Effects Of Photoshop On Magazines | Scoop.it
It's no secret that celebrity images are Photoshopped but sometimes the editing taken overboard.
Gabriella Batista's insight:

While a lot of people look up to how so many celebrities look like, or their appearance, they sometimes can't even tell if it's a real picture. Even though celebrities might not like how they look, editors in magazines sometimes take photoshop to an extreme. The most famous celebrities even use photoshop and they turn into "photo fails." Demi Moore's left hip doesn't even connect to her thigh on the cover of W. Madonna is not even herself on the cover of Out. Some celebrities even admit how ridiculous the editing is. Kate Winslet was made to look thinner on the cover of British GQ and she said. " I do not look like that, and more importantly, I don't desire to look like that." So many celebrities look very different in magazines from how they look in person. This affects the audience because they will get influenced in a bad way.

Physically Photoshopping Ourselves Out of Reality | BEAUTY REDEFINED

Physically Photoshopping Ourselves Out of Reality | BEAUTY REDEFINED | The Effects Of Photoshop On Magazines | Scoop.it
When the digital world of female forms looks nothing like the natural world, is it any wonder that women have turned to physical alteration to meet unreal standards?
Gabriella Batista's insight:

Women have turned to physical alteration to meet the unreal standards. They have gotten plastic surgery, extra makeup, and have done anything to make them look like models in magazines. Which only some people know, are photoshopped to look like a stereotypical model. What women spend days, months, or even years doing, editors can use an airbrush to go over the celebrities faces and bodies and make them look flawless. In reality, nobody is really flawless. Photoshop might get some people upset,or stressed out just because of the fact that they cant look like the photoshopped people. What isnt great about photoshop is that beauty marks, scars, freckles, etc. can easily be removed. This happened with a "One Direction" member Liam Payne. His well-known neck birthmark was removed on a cover and fans were very upset. Photoshop can cause lots of hate towards not only the application, but towards the magazine that publishes it.

Gabriella Batista's insight:

Most teens whenever looking at magazines, think about how gorgegous the people are and sometimes they think "Why can't I be like her." But really, that "her" is not really her! It is photoshop. A lot of teens were sick of seeing perfectly photoshopped and one girl finally spoke out. Julia Bluhm,(pictured to the left) staged a protest in support of her Change.org petition. She felt like it was ridiculous that girls were wanting to be like people who actually do not exist. Julia said, “I’ve always just known how Photoshop can have a big effect on girls and their body image and how they feel about themselves. You need to see something realistic — you need to see a reflection of what truly represents a teenage girl nowadays.” Julia was asking that the magazines feature one unaltered photo spread in each issue.

I thought your summary on this article was very interesting. I agree with Julia Bluhm on this topic because many girls have low self-esteem because of the celebrities they see in magazines.

Are Magazines Downplaying the Figures of Plus-Size Stars?

Are Magazines Downplaying the Figures of Plus-Size Stars? | The Effects Of Photoshop On Magazines | Scoop.it

"Elle magazine has come under fire for allegedly downplaying the plus-size figure of actress Melissa McCarthy on its latest cover. Critics are saying Elle purposely tried to hide the Bridesmaids star by putting her in an oversize coat that covered most of her body. (Or, in the words of Slate writer June Thomas, a coat “so huge that [McCarthy] could hide her Mike and Molly co-star Billy Gardel underneath.”) Meanwhile, Elle’s other November cover stars (the magazine is running separate covers featuring six different actresses for its "Women in Hollywood” issue) got to show considerably more skin..."

Seventeen Magazine's New Photoshop Policy Is the Same As The Old Photoshop Policy

Seventeen Magazine's New Photoshop Policy Is the Same As The Old Photoshop Policy | The Effects Of Photoshop On Magazines | Scoop.it
Seventeen has at last, in an oblique kind of way, responded to the controversy sparked in April when a 14-year-old from Maine started an online petition calling out the magazine's over-use of Photoshop.
Gabriella Batista's insight:

Seventeen Magazine in filled with young editors. Their job is to make the celebrities look in their words "presentable" but really they are just doing it because it is their job not because they think celebrirties should look perfect. That petition, started by a middle school student named Julia Bluhm, quickly went viral and was signed by over 84,000 people. The petition was for Seveenteen not to alter its models' appearance with Photoshop, and to publish one unretouched photo spread per issue. The sad thing about this is that while going through magazines you are most like going to be able to find the "un- photoshopped" subject. A lot of people were so proud of Julia for feeling so strong about this petition. What people don't realize is how much photoshop changes how people really look like.

Photoshopping: Altering Images and Our Minds | BEAUTY REDEFINED

Photoshopping: Altering Images and Our Minds | BEAUTY REDEFINED | The Effects Of Photoshop On Magazines | Scoop.it
Photoshopping, digital alteration, image manipulation. Images of women perfected with technology. Manipulated photos of women.
Gabriella Batista's insight:

We all know how much editors of magazines edit there pioictures. What we don't know is the effect of how people react to seeing the pictures. Photoshop transforms the whole figure of a celebrities body. It is very rare to see a picture in a magazine like this that is not edited. The medias represtaion of "perfect" is someone skinny, and with no imperfections, but in real life, no one is ever perfect and especially perfecct looking. Photoshopping has taken these ideas onto new levels. What people also don't know is how the celebrities don't appreciate how their body is transformed. Photoshopping just makes medias definition of "perfect" stand out even more. Perfect is not how you can be changed but how you can be yourself. The audience of the magazines sometimes can even change their opinion of the celebrities or the magazine.
