Its funny 'cause its true
So I have been an avid Adobe user for quites some time now. I've been using their tools for many years and, even though I'm not much of an artist, I've been known to use Photoshop from time to time. So when I saw someone link a video that said "Fotoshop by Adobé" I had to check it out. Even if it was bad, being an Adobe nerd I might get a chuckle or two. Turns out the video is quite funny. It seems to parody every personal beauty advertisement I can ever remember seeing. Everything from eyelashes to cheesey animations explaining how it smooths away wrinkles. And yes, Fotoshop by Adobé can seemingly do it all.
In all seriousness what's most funny about this video is that it is true. Photoshop by Adobe does skew our idea of what natural, normal, sexy and beautiful is. Since it takes a computer program, it turns out these images are neither natural nor normal. However, breaking through that psychological barrier of created reality might turn out to be a real tough nut to crack.
And if you would like to see the behind the scenes video, I found that too. [vimeo 34793617 w=400 h=225]
