Designers From Different Countries Photoshop the Same Model; Beauty Is Still Subjective, Apparently

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.

What Other Anachronistic Items Were Left In That Downton Abbey Promo Pic?


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. The person who was supposed to take that water bottle off the mantle just made everyone's week a whole lot more fun.

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." A cool idea, especially when you note that all of these designers were of widely different skill levels and were only paid $5 to $30 for their work, so some of that work is... not what you'd expect. It raises the question: how much of what we complain about when we look at magazines is because someone is not so great at their job

Men Who Take Up Too Much Room on Subway Explained… With Cats!

Elsewhere on the internet

Men Taking Up Too Much Space on the Train is a blog dedicated to showcasing how easy it is for the masses to obtain pictures of men spreading themselves across two seats on a train, when they could easily take up one. It's framed, as much as any single serving Tumblog can frame an issue, as a demonstration of one of the myriad small ways in which the societal urgings -- that encourage women to be slight and small and above all not impose on others and that encourage men to assert their presence and claim their space -- manifest even in the smallest of ways. Saving Room For Cats posits that it's not the result of subtle societal messages at all: it's because all those guys are saving room for enormous photoshopped cats. And sometimes those cats are saving room for other cats.

Wil Wheaton’s Fans Photoshop Him Into, Well, Everything

what is this I don't even

I don't know how fans photoshopping actor/writer Wil Wheaton's face into other pop-culture properties became such a big thing. But it has. And I'm glad. As far as I can tell, it all started when Wheaton tweeted a photo of himself on a green screen and one of his followers, a graphic designer, quickly photoshopped him onto the bridge of the Enterprise. So he posted another green screen photo and things just evolved (devolved?) from there.
