Magazines and on-line media often use Photoshop to correct photos that have imperfections so it becomes more likeable for the public eye. The most common use is in photographs with people and they are usually done with the subject’s consent.
However, recently a group by the name of “Project Harpoon” took a lot of heat for photoshopping plus-size models in order to “inspire” them to lose weight! Furthermore their intention is to show how much more beautiful the models would look if they commit to a regimen of fitness. They manipulated photos just to highlight the difference between how they look now and how they could look in future.
On the other hand some of these images were submitted by real users just to feel motivated in achieving their goal by losing weight.
