Most women wish that fashion magazines and websites did not Photoshop their models. It creates an unrealistic beauty standard, which is harmful and ridiculous. Unfortunately, while some publications may decide to cut down on the amount of retouching they give their photographs, it seems unlikely that Photoshopping will ever truly go out of style.
Given this reality, the media obsession with policing Photoshopping is starting to wear a little thin. In recent months, sites have made a point of picking over fashion photography, pointing out every blemish artificially covered up and asset altered.
At one time there was a point to all of this. Before awareness of Photoshopping was widespread, these types of stories called attention to an important hypocrisy in American pop culture: the perpetuation of beauty standards so unrealistic they literally had to be painted on celebrities and models.
