MY THOUGHTS ON PHOTOSHOPPING:

For this assignment we were asked to play around with photoshop filters. I enjoyed this part because messing around with the many different filters was funny. After we were done in photoshop with our images we were to turn in our two favorite images that we changed. Doing this it showed us how much you can change a picture and how media can take it too far. I believe that photoshopping in the media should have restrictions on it because it gives us images that we are supposed to look up to but will never live up to them. In reality the pictures in magazines and on billboards are fake because they have photoshopped them so much. The before shot of the picture SHOULD be shown right next to the altered image in the media. This way we can see that there is no such thing as perfect and in order to get that perfect they have to change it that much. Photoshop is fun to play with however, its taken too far when completely altering a body.
