30 Photos, before & after: Photoshop has a long & glorious, hot & fun pre-History.

Love thyself as you are, then you can improve:

Before Photoshop, there was pinup art. (NSFW) (imgur.com)

The imagination is a fun thing. Being okay with ourselves is even better.

“In most of the cases the artist made the image more slender and prettier than the actual model. So, nothing has changed…Waists get thinner, legs get leaner, boobs get bigger.”

“Except that in these pictures, it’s … obvious it’s an illustration and that the woman pictured could look different, or could simply have been imagined by the artist. Photoshop presents an image of a real person, and the intention is to make you think they actually look like what you see. IMO, one is intentionally misleading, and the other is not.”

“As a strait chick, I’ve always wondered what it is about American pinup girls that I like. Looking these over, I think I’ve figured it out. It’s the positive sexuality they portray. The pictures aren’t demeaning to their subjects in any way and the girls themselves are like, “Yeah, you know I’m hot!” In a society where it’s not okay for a woman to publicly admit that they know they are attractive, this is kind of refreshing.”
