Retouch Me, Please

Lindsey Beierstein (of Majikthise) pointed out this interesting video about retouching and how very common it is in magazines, these days. The pictures we see are not about real people. Even the beautiful models are not beautiful enough. What that does to us all is an interesting question, and the video points out some possible consequences as well as some ways to combat the false standards that retouching everything has created.
