I found these sites really interesting. They show before and after examples of photo retouching (digital airbrushing) in fashion/beauty photography.

I’ve had a lot of experience with using Photoshop to play with images (the main tool used in retouching) and yet I still feel a bit inferior every time I see a flawless model on the cover of a magazine.

I will never look like those models, because those models do not exist.

But I sure wouldn’t mind getting a nice photo of me retouched by one of these people. Would be nice to see how great I could look if given the full treatment!
