How Photoshop Works Its Digital Lipo Magic

If you've ever wondered how models and celebrities can appear so picture perfect in magazines you can stop wondering. Beyonce may have looked flawless for her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition photoshoot, but something tells me even she has a little help from the photoshop gods. It's common knowledge that photo editors remove cellulite, erase stretch marks, blur wrinkles, hide pimples, slim, tone, adjust, tweak, lengthen, shorten, lighten, darken and re-touch images before they send them to the press, but what does that transformation look like? Check out this video and witness a woman drop from a size 20 to a size 8 right before your very eyes...all because of Dr. cutting, tucking, lipo, dieting or exercising required.

I don't know about you, but it's somewhat shocking how quickly an image can be transformed. I'm not opposed to a little digital nip and tuck but being totally altered is not what I'd call a digital enhancement.

HOLY CRAP. That's sickkk... I mean the whitening and addition of hair is fine.. but the thinning of people????? I don't think we need models anymore, just photoshop.

Yeah Photoshop can do wonders. Adding hair and whitening teeth are very important. -_-

Um.... wow. That's pretty sad really. Women worry about looking like celebs when celebs don't even have to worry about it. Someone can just fix it with their magic pen if they don't!

Very cool! The top looks amazing...I kinda think the legs need to be toned more. They look "out of shape" compared to the rest. They probably used a tablet instead of a mouse's like painting on your computer.

I'm one of those Photoshop gurus that can do things like that. It's a lot of fun but I don't make myself drop sizes or anything that drastic, although I could if I wanted to.

I saw this on gigglesugar--did anyone notice the end result looks like Drew Barrymore a little bit?

Whenever I see this I get calmed down a bit since I know the pictures of perfect legs without any cellulite are probably photoshopped and I'm not a freak.

Wow I'm impressed. The only thing I ever do is whiten my teeth when the lighting makes them look yellow. I am me, I have no interest in altering what I look like.

times easier when done with a pen, not a mouse. All this person used was the liquify function (Filter > Liquify [on Photoshop CS2]) in Photoshop with great pen handling skills.

I've only ever tried minor retouching like to get rid of dark circles in a holiday family photo or something like that - but I've never had good luck so I abandoned it altogether

Wow, that's quite something. Some awesome Photoshop skills there. My sister gets me to retouch her face often...but I know nothing about the process for digital lipo - it's crazily amazing!

WOW. just WOW. It's amazing what photoshop can do! Does anyone know which tool the person used? I'm actually quite curious. I know you can add pounds to a person but I never thought of digital lipo before! That is seriously crazy.

Wow, I knew I'd barely explored the tip of the iceberg with Photoshop, but I had no idea how barely! I'll have to go find some tutorials now, and never, ever trust anything I see in magazines ever again.

I'm quite guilty of photoshopping things, but then again I'm a graphic artist student that's trained to. I'm a little curious what tools this person used though...

I get my roommate to work his photoshop magic on blemishes and such, but I've never thought of digital lipo til now. How do you claim to be in those pictures though- when they look nothing like you?

I should just say that this person is excellent at their Photoshop skills. Wow. But like I always tell my fiance, I too, could be perfect if I had a personal make-up artist and Photoshop guy following me around.
