Scientific American has a tutorial on how to spot a doctored photo, which is really interesting when applied to timely news photos, but for this gossip junkie, it doubles in interest when you use it to spot photoshopped celebrity photos! In the new Sex and the City movie, Carrie is swayed into doing a magazine photo shoot with two words: "Vogue airbrushing." I won't lie to you, my vanity perked up when I was first learning Photoshop, because I was thinking "Yessss! No more zits!"
If you don't do what you can to look your best while taking the photo, you know you have post-pic options. Though I have yet to erase my own blemishes with Photoshop, I have fixed red-eye and offered my skills to friends who have complained about unflattering photos of themselves.
So, spill: Have you used your Photoshop skills to fix a photo of you, or had someone do it for you?
