How do you feel about this kind of altering of photos of models and celebrities or who-ever loves changing their looks using Filters, Photoshop etch...
I found myself a couple times looking at photos going wow IF ONLY!
Do you agree with those who want to label retouched images like these because they may promote unrealistic expectations of appropriate body image and contribute to eating disorders?
Why or why not?

I think photoshopped images of perfectly wonderful looking people creates an ideal that no one can attain. Do they make me feel bad about myself? No, because they aren't real. Do they make other people feel bad? Yeah I'd say so.
The problem is that these images make real bodies seem less attractive. I also don't understand why we must put out the "best image". Take Eva Longoria for example. The woman is beautiful, she's gorgeous just the way she is but she gets photoshopped to look slightly slimmer, her boobs slightly bigger, her skin totally flawless and slightly more tanned... so what we're seeing is almost an artists' interpretation of Eva, how they think she could look better... but there was NOTHING wrong with Eva in the first place... we're not seeing real people, we're seeing images that are based on real humans. I think it's sad that even these beautiful women with their gorgeous bodies and looks... even these women aren't good enough. And who decides what IS sexy enough? Not us... but we all buy into it.1
