    One Woman Had Her Picture Photoshopped In 25 Different Countries

    "Make me look beautiful.

    "That's what Esther Honig asked 40 photo editors to do -- in over 25 countries. Using the service-sharing site Fiverr, Honig, a human interest reporter, sent a picture of herself to be photoshopped around the world to see just how much cultural values are applied to standards of beauty. The results throw the idea of 'the perfect woman' into sharp relief."

    See the results here.

    Nice idea poorly executed...?

    Great post PNP. My only critical comment on the whole thing is that it seems to imply that the artist represented his or her country as a whole, while in reality, different artists in the same country have quite different tastes. Good experiment though.

    True, and it almost looks like amateur hour! Barely one or two decent retouches. Might be interesting to see folks on the various photo forums take their turn.

    Yeah, there was some questionable work in there. USA? Not impressed.
    Interesting idea for sure!
