I was just browsing YouTube and came across some very good photoshop instructional videos by a character called 'Donnie Hoyle'. Donnie "is the worst kind of loser. He’s the equivalent of an angry son borne of Michael Scott and Comic Book Guy using Photoshop as a means of figuratively rectifying the problems he can’t address in real life." Check him out. Oh yeah, contains some naughty language.

Anyway, so after watching a bunch of his videos I came across a video on the use of photoshop in magazines and the effect it has on people's perceptions. It was quite interesting so I thought I would share.

and the follow up is quite good too.

What do you think on the use of photoshop? Is it lying? Should it be made clear like health warnings on cigarettes?
