In a completely different vain....

Have a look at www.fluideffect.com. More to the point, go to their portfolio, click agree and then go to the before/after section. You'll find some pictures of celebs (don't worry; safe for work). Now you'll see a link to the left that says "click to see before". What this does is shows you what the picture looked like before they touched it up in photoshop (or whatever). Very interesting. Incredible shrinking women and everything! And now you realise that I did mean "vain"...

Those boys are certainly good with the photoshop. I new this went on but didn't realise quite the extent to which they doctored pictures. I guess in the old days it was all done with make up and lighting. Liked the pun, too.

i couldn't get the website to work. where are the after pictures?

The "after" pictures are the first pictures you see. You click the link to see "before". Do you have javascript disabled, maybe? Perhaps try a different browser; works for me in Firefox tho.

Wow - fascinating, though I didn't recognise any of the celebrities. I wonder if there's any software out there than can detect when this touching up has been done to an image.
