Airbrushed images of models and celebrities have already been linked with eating disorders and body dissatisfaction. Now such images could come with a warning, thanks to a system for rating degrees of photograph manipulation.
Politicians in countries such as the UK, France and Norway have already called for labels on retouched images, but the publishing industry has so far resisted the change since nearly all photos are tweaked in some way.

I sure would like to see this implemented in on-line magazines (especially the "entertainment" ones) where it shows picture after picture of glamorous sports or thespian celebrities......
Just a little button that says (raw) or (processed).. one click... and then you would realize just what you've been 'sold' as a role-model....
As for art.... well... some might contend the "art" of photography died after digital replaced film - after that it mostly became a matter of software rather than a photographer's perception.
No offense intended pred....

I hate advertising, you can't walk down the street without it being in your eyesight, it's everywhere you can't escape it.
I would gladly pay 5% more tax to have no ad's on my computer,TV or in the high street.
If you have to advertise tell the truth don't airbrush models face's when you are advertising makeup, don't add a fake hairweave when advertising shampoo and show us what the ready meal really looks like when I heat it up ffs.
Watch the video and take the guy's advice....rant over later xxxx
