It actually is Taylor Swift, but with a ton of Photoshop added!
Did they really have to edit her photo this much? It hardly looks like her!
Check out the highly retouched photo side-by-side with an non-edited shot of the star. Can you see how different she looks?
Photoshopping or retouching is when they edit a photo on a computer to make it look different. Here’s what they did to Taylor’s.
First of all, they made her face much slimmer and more angular. Her face isn’t oval-shaped and her chin definitely isn’t that pointy. It looks like they also slimmed down her nose, and seriously enhanced her cheekbones.
Her hair is clearly also different, but they sometimes mix up models’ hair colors to give the photo a different style. But changing Taylor’s whole face almost makes her look like a different person.
What do you think of Tay’s Covergirl ad retouching – is it too much, or it is okay to Photoshop pictures for ads?
