I'd say the second pays better.

 

Amazing what they can do with some makeup and a pixel pushing program.

Yeah, I learned a cool technique where you "lasso" the side of a persons face, paste it into a new layer, drag it in (So the person looks thinner) and use the eraser at around 60% to erase the hard edges. Then, you can use the cloning tool to tidy up anything that's hanging out on the bottom layer. You can do the same thing to a person's nose by lassoing the bumps around the nostrils, and moving them to where you want them.

There is another angle on this. I did the lighting on a Cindy Crawford video shoot for a line of kids clothing she endorses or owns.

 

When she walked in after being in make up and I saw her in person for the first time, I was like ...ok she looks good but not that good. But tell you what, the instant she got in front of that camera and I saw her on the monitor it was....holy cow....big difference. She is so photogenic it is unreal.

 

The people who cast these models and actors and actresses know what to look for.

 

 

I see this every day. Still the ad with the photoshop stuff was really good...makes you wonder.

I've seen websites that show the before and afters of photoshopping. It's incredible what can be done. Like they say, no wonder our idea of beautiful is so warped. I guess that's why I'm always shocked when I see the trade rags and the paparazi photos. Yuck. :eek:

I saw her on Jay Leno (she even tried to sing). I couldn't help wondering what was so special. She looked very good, but not extremely beautiful like the pics. Shania Twain looked just as good, if not better. But like you say, its what happens when the lights come on.

 

Never trust what you see. Here are some roll-overs.

I certainly can, how do you feel about a blonde wig and some makeup?

 

By the way Zan, the avatar I made for you stops flapping after 1000 times. I forgot to set the repeat to "infinite". Here is you bat, redone with the proper loop setting.

Isn't this how Sas' avatar got started?

Nope - most of it is duplicating and blurring, then blending back in. Then there is the healing brush tool (in CS2). Here's a couple of tuts.
