The Announcer: Female Leaders Don’t Count

Ultra-Orthodox Jewish newspaper The Announcer got into hot water this week when they ran this photo of world leaders gathering at the Charlie Hebdo march in France.

What’s missing?  Well, it appears that the newspaper didn’t want to include any of the female leaders who posed for the original picture, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini. Several other ladies were also deleted from the image.

Bad form, guys.  BAD form.  You can see a full list of the female leaders who got erased right here.  Thank you to John, Volker, Paige, and everyone else who brought this image to our attention.

Urban Outfitters: Before or After, The Choice Is Yours

It sure was nice of Urban Outfitters to let us choose which bikini bod we like better, the edited version:

Or the original (not weirdly dented) version:

Whoa, that was a close one.  She almost looked like a normal thin model, for a second! You can see all the pics here.  It’s kind of fun to click between the two images and watch her hip dent appear and disappear. Just good clean family fun.

Thanks for sending this in, Brittany!

Photoshop Round-Up: Links We Love

Wow, what a week!  Although the Bieber-Bulge scandal overshadowed most of the week’s Photoshop-related news, there was no shortage of great Photoshop and pop culture news this week.

Justin Bieber Photoshopped In Calvin Klein Ads

Ever since those pics of buffed-up man-baby Justin Bieber posing for Calvin Klein hit the internet, we’ve been getting emails from readers questioning whether he’d been Photoshopped.  The answer of course is yes, but we weren’t seeing anything that really qualified as disastrous.

But then, the plot thickened.  First, Gawker reported that someone had actually gone in and Photoshopped a “happy trail” (that’s pubes, to you and me) onto his hairless abdomen.  Then, the NY Post’s Page Six claimed that his bulge had gotten a little help, as well.

Today, a website called Breathe Heavy claims to have unretouched images of the Bieber photo shoot:

Daaaaaaamn. Maybe we do have a disaster on our hands, after all.  What do you think?
