Mikey1969: I'm not "outraged", but I think it's pretty stupid on the part of the photo studio. It's not their business to judge what's "attractive" and what's not.
The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: Retouching goes way back before digital even for yearbook photos.
gtfan92: All of my school pictures from middle school through high school had this option. (I'm only 20) I surely don't remember anyone being "OMG, I'M SHOCKED! OUTRAGEZZ!!1" over it.
BolloxReader: gtfan92: All of my school pictures from middle school through high school had this option. (I'm only 20) I surely don't remember anyone being "OMG, I'M SHOCKED! OUTRAGEZZ!!1" over it.Only retouched pictured we had were senior year where lots of idiots would pay hundreds of dollars for what seemed to me to be lots of blurry lines (supposed to be "soft" but always seemed just blurry to me).But I graduated in 94. All of my yearbook pictures were done with film rather than digital cameras. I know for a fact that our yearbook crew in high school didn't even have a digital camera or access to a computer with photo software. I'm guessing the mother in TFA is reacting because she doesn't know how easy and common it is today to do this and she feels it violates her future memories of her kids when they were in school. To her, those memories (the pictures) will forever be seen through someone else's filter of who her child should have been that day.

davidphogan: fusillade762: Black eyes? They should learn to stop walking into doors.I had several black eyes as a kid. Fell out of bed and hit my garbage can with my face, got hit with a baseball, got hit with a hockey puck, got kicked in the face playing soccer, etc. If CPS had worried every time I had a black eye I'd never had seen my parents.
