  • Photoshop Abuse?

    I happened to drop by at this blog and his talking about abuse in using Photoshop in some sort of skin care advertisement. While looking at the images shown you actually don’t believe the before and after photo. It is a totally exaggerated in my own opinion.

    "As a designer I’m pretty used to noticing how overly Photoshopped people’s images are on certain magazine covers, but this advertisement really seemed over the top to me. I believe this is false advertising and I think its a shame people abuse Photoshop in this way to promote products."

    I think most people learn that much of advertising is BS. We all accept that. If they didn't use Photoshop, they'd use paint brushes.

            Though in the pictures they put "simulated images" but still the effect is unbelievable... I would have to say its a bad advertisement! lol

              The filters that come with Photoshop do what their names imply pretty well, but as we've all found out, they can be made to do much more than that!
