Photoshop is an amazing tool to have when editing photos. But, wherever there is Photoshop, there's bound to be a Photoshop fail.
But this one literally makes my stomach hurt.
It's from AnnTaylor Loft and shows a woman in a bikini - and she's has had some major digital altering. Do you see what's up with her stomach?
Why did Ann Taylor's digital designers feel that her stomach needed to go? Here's the official statement from an Ann Taylor representative.
The photo in question was actually only minimally retouched to remove a tattoo. Admittedly, the photo highlighted the model at an awkward angle, making it look as if there had been significant retouching. That was not the case. You can see in the original photo the shape of the model is consistent, and the retouching was simply to address the tattoo and not the shape of the model. Because the photo could be perceived as significantly retouched, we have replaced the shot on our website.
