  • Women's mags might need to down size...

    What happens when photo-shopping becomes illegal? Given that women's magazines have a photo-shopped image on 70-90% of the pages within, there's gonna be a LOT of people out of work. But at the same time, the photo-shopping exists BECAUSE women buy shit the photo-shopping advertizes; women just don't want to see real women in their magazines.

    Fuck it, ban it all. I would love to see all the women's mags fall into ruin because they're the ones who actually give a shit about this.

    If anyone tries to tell me that the Photoshopping is for Men then I just calmly remind them that there is an entire porn industry devoted to women over 80.

      why should women's magazines need to down size when their readers are not?

        most of the time I see the whole ban Photoshop, they usually bring up comparisons that can be done exclusively in Lightroom or Darktable. Most of the people making the comparisons also cannot tell what would be done in which program.

        Besides if they ban Photoshop, then companies will invest in Gimp. Also, I don't see them banning all methods to use dodge/burn and other important editing tools

          They'll have to let many of the photo-shopping go, as in, lay them off, or fire them; hence, down-sizing.

            yes and their reader base isn't losing any weight, their sizes aren't going down, hence they aren't down-sizing.

              What do the readers have to do with it?

                Maybe they should ban makeup as well.

                  I'm kind of partial to make-up.

                  Though now I'm curious... isn't there already a law regarding false advertizement? Wouldn't photo-shopping fall under that? And for that matter, the cunts on those dating sites; can they be sued?
