The use of editing software’s such as Photoshop can be very beneficial in selling an item, but it can also be seen as a lie to customers. This also branches out to health issues and trusting brands to promise their outcome from the product be successful as the advertisement seems. “…Knowing that images are manipulated doesn’t defuse their effects…We know they’re photoshopped, but we still want to look like that”, quoted from Dr. Kim Bussell, founder of the Child Media Lab at the University of Alabama.
