Photoshop and online dating

Added on by Alex Koehne.

Apparently this gallery of before and afters over at Gizmodo is from some Russian dating site where it is common practice to hire professional writers to make your profile and professional photographers and retouchers to do your photos. Sounds pretty extreme and absolutely silly to me, but I guess people are just that desperate in Russia. Of course, it probably happens everywhere. My favorite before and afters are the ones where the girl is made only slightly less ugly.
