Magazines have always altered the appearances of celebrities, be it singers, actors, actresses, or other famous personalities. Even before the trick of Photoshop existed, the magazine and media industry has collaborated with multiple celebrities to carefully present such photo-shopped images that shape the consciousness of the viewers. But sadly, the public eye could not miss the differences.
Today, due to modern technology, anyone can change their appearance in photographs with the help of just one click. However, for many people, this thing has become a great issue as they think that this act is promoting those unrealistic beauty standards that are nearly impossible to achieve- especially for young women.
While posting pictures on their social media accounts, celebrities tend to photo-shop a large portion of the picture and such altered images are becoming very popular in the advertising market as well. Sometimes, such uncanny manipulation is quite obvious and celebrities themselves harshly react to this sometimes. The Photo-shop feature can literally vanish any lump or bump a person may have on their body, can enhance every sparkle and twinkle, and this has left many young people feeling insecure. We need to remember that pictures can be deceiving and these celebrities are human beings as well, with the same ‘flaws and imperfections as us.
