article imageIs it Real or is it Photoshop? — The Next Revolution In Beauty

By Yukio Strachan     Jan 13, 2012 in Lifestyle
"Maybe you're born with it, Nah! I'm pretty sure is Fotoshop." That's just one of the lines from the video parody that's gone viral practically overnight on how magazines deceive readers into striving to achieve an image that does not exist in reality.
The Backstory
Jesse Rosten couldn't sleep. So one night, Mr. Rosten, who is a filmaker, decided to watch some television and came upon a program that drew him in.
The show featured beauty products with before and after pictures "that to my eye, looked like the same photo just photoshopped," he wrote online. "I laughed to myself. Then I made this video. This commercial isn't real, and neither are society's standards of beauty."
The video, entitled “Fotoshop by Adobé” captured the world's attention on Jan 9, when he uploaded it to Vimeo, a video sharing site similar to YouTube.
Over three days later the video has been viewed more than two million times.
“Where can I buy this Fotoshop?”
“Fotoshop by Adobé” hit a nerve with viewers, both men and women from photographers in the industry to social workers who work with eating disorders. "A must-see for anyone with body image issues," says one commenter. "Even men have a hard time with. Can you do one like this for men?" adds another. And an activist for the prevention of eating disorders says, "I especially appreciated that you used humor and wit to convey your message instead of screaming 'Shame on you!'" "It is crazy what we can do with an electronic image," a photographer says, "People.. need to see that what they see in the media is all an illusion!"
