With massive layoffs hitting photographers, photo editors, and other visual media-based professions across the industry over the last few years (and beyond), it's not exactly surprising that we've seen a recent uptick in glaring front-page mistakes.Read More

It's a small world after all.
Women graphic designers around the world got asked to photoshop a model to make her "more attractive," not realizing their results would be used as part of a project by a UK pharmacy chain called Superdrug. Although the sample size is small, given that Superdrug only approached one designer from 18 different countries, the results show a lot of variation in what "more attractive" might mean.Read More

It's been a really tough week in general, so I think I speak for all of us when I say we needed something like this Downton Abbey promo pic to come along. Look at it. Look hard. See something that shouldn't be there, considering Downton is set in the 1920s? Yeah.

Esther Honig’s “Before and After” Series Shows Both the Dangers of Impossible Beauty Standards And Bad Photoshop
You wanted your eyes to be angling the wrong way, right?
Seeking to explore different national expectations of beauty, journalist Ester Honig asked 40 graphic designers from around the world to "make her beautiful."
