Photoshop Diet

If you type 'Photoshop diet' into YouTube you get an alarming number of these behind the scenes photo manipulation videos, which leave me feeling rather amazed and sick at the same time. I believe it's great that technology is so advanced yet it also sickens me to think that the world sees such a distorted image. It saddens me that young girls across the globe look up to a fake image and sigh and say "I wish I looked that gorgeous/pretty/amazing/thin..." when in fact the image has been photoshopped to death!

This video is an older one which I am sure many readers will have seen yet I believe it is good to watch it again....
I invite you to share this with young girls you know.
