The Virtual Knife

There has been quite a bit of controversy lately around how Photoshop is being used to alter the personalities on covers of magazines and in advertising. Accused edits include enhanced breasts, small waists and hips, lighter skin, etc. This most recently came to a head with Gabourey Sidibe, star of Precious, and this month’s cover of Elle.

Gaby’s case is definitely not extreme – and it may not be true – but the cover has definitely sparked a much need discussion around ethics.

Take a look and be the judge yourself.
