Young men and women shouldn’t let false advertising destroy their self-confidence. Photoshop has a huge effect on everyone’s confidence especially with the younger generation. Wether they’ve dramatically used photoshop cs5 editing photos or simply just touched a couple of areas here and there, below are some reasons why all photoshop should be banned.
Photoshop is unhealthy
The figures of some models who are photoshopped are at unachievable weight levels. Photoshopped images of models bombard the public almost everywhere. Wether you look at the bus stops, in shops or online, there will be a photoshopped model not so far away. This cannot be healthy, especially to the younger generation who are admiring these models.
False advertising has become too accepted
Ever seen a picture of a perfectly swirled Mcflurry, but then been extremely disappointed when you received yours? The use of photoshop has been overused to a point where photoshopped images almost bear no resemblance to the original photo or idea, especially in good advertising. Advertisers sometimes sell a fake image of the product rather than the real product.
Models are also affected badly by photoshop. Yes, it is their job but I believe we should allow models to feel confident with their bodies too. When posters look so dramatically different to the photo shoot, it is unhealthy for everyone involved.
