Speak Up: Photoshopped Faith Hill

There has been a lot of talk over Faith Hill's appearance on the cover of Redbook recently due to some serious photoshop work that was done to her picture.

I never really understood it all until I stumbled onto and saw the before and after pictures (above).

To me, it is upsetting that a beautiful woman like Faith Hill is not portrayed accurately. The woman in the first picture is gorgeous and real, the woman in the second picture is flawless and unreal. Women are led to believe such false images of what it means to be a sexy woman due to the very unnatural portrayals we see in the media everyday. What do you think about all this? Are photoshopped images of women something we should just deal with or is it something you would like to see come to an end? Speak up and share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Summer sun kissed skin is gone, cute freckles on sholder are gone, cute little roll of fat on back is gone..smilling wrinkles are gone... they really left no life to this pic. All it's natural beauty was taken away... Alot of the times the celebirties are at fault as well. for not showing their ture selfs. I know i would have wanted it written on paper my photos will not be posted any where if any changes have been made to the original.. keep me as I am.. Why be ashamed of what is truly urs? I myself have ramdom scars threw out my body and still have accepted it and love it... each scar shares a story and memory.. we all have a few strech marks here and there, spider veins.. ugly scars, discolored skin, wrinkles .. and so on. This plastic trend will never end... it would take millions of ture people to change that... and it's sad to say but not too many of us left... I usually keep away from fake mags and gossip and sum tv.. just be ture to urself and keep that plastic crap off your mind... it's the only way out... oh, im not sure if anyone notice they shrunk her waist too.. that's a shame.. Faith Hill should do rais sum hell about this pic? dont you think?

I think more and more people are starting to enjoy seeing celebs and models with their noses photoshopped to the point that it's almost completely gone.

Minor photoshopping is understandable for magazine covers (to even skin tone, hide blemishes...basically things we all try to do with makeup, some more successfully than others) but when it is to this extent it is kind of upsetting!

The two positives from this particular incident is that (1) Faith Hill has talked out against such re-touching (2) It gives the rest of us hope that even gorgeous celebs like Hill aren't "perfect" by industry standards.

Redbook of all magazines, tsk tsk. Only place I'd consider photoshop is under her eyes though the makeup artist could have done a better job with undereye concealer. What's up with the forearm and her collar bone?

The celebs generally have no say in the matter of whether or not they are airbrushed to perfection. Faith Hill is stunning with or without photoshops help.

Such a great reminder! I have never had a weight problem but when I stress I eat junk. I morn the fact I cannot wear my size 2 or 4 pants, see these these people looking great and I eat more. I have learned (since I am 37) to wear whatever looks GREAT on me. SO I buy my Lucky jeans in my new size and favorite well fitted well make top so I can feel good about myself TODAY. I am then more centered, I stress less, I schedule TIME in my life to take care of myself even work out and move more-rather than work more... the results I get better. I look better and soon the new pants need to be stored. I can wear my clothes in my closet instead of few that fit in the brown paper sack (the 4 outfits, 2 size D cup bras and one pair of new larger yoga pants!). SO being reminded about these touch ups is great, wearing great clothes that FIT so you can feel good to get centered, eat well and move, is the best course!!

I am still amazed! I know this is old but this should be recognized. Our sense of reality is truely shaped by this, whether we like it or not! Great reality check and great it was put out there again!

that's crazy. i just showed my bf that and even he said "that should be put out there more so girls that are trying to be like that know that its not real" or something along those lines.

If you look at the second picture long enough her arm looks really weird. Almost like a wooden arm or something. I'm glad that she gets bags under her eyes when she smiles too. It is such a controversy. On one hand it is definitely bad, we all know the reasons behind that. On the other hand, does it inspire us as women?

Her smile looks a lot happier in the first pic. I wonder what was so wrong with the way her arm looks that they had to make it really really small.

She looks much more beautiful and real in the first photo. It sucks that magazines & other media do this, even to the most beautiful of women.

I know this is old, but I just saw it today and had to reply to tralalala's comment. I use photoshop daily too, as I am a graphic designer. But I never use it to retouch people to make them look better (or worse for that matter). In fact, I would never retouch my photographs of my wedding or anything else even though I know perfectly well how to do it. My pictures from my wedding are gorgeous because I was glowing and having a great day and that shines through the pictures. That is what I want to remember. In fact my husband and I were looking at them yesterday and he said "man you're so beautiful." If i had retouched those pictures that comment just wouldn't mean the same thing to me.

I don't mind some minor retouching such as some fine lines or blemishes or scars, hell even stretch marks. However, when you thin body parts, then that's where I draw the line. Down with turning actual celebs' bodies into mannequins!!!
