There’s a movement gaining traction in the French Parliament to require advertisers who use Photoshop to enhance a photograph to disclose it in writing or face big fines!
Ooohh la la, wouldn’t that be a kick? Leave it to the French to shake the foundations of our culture to the very core.
(And those foundations are?)
2. The right to tart up advertising photos in Photoshop.
You know what this means, right? It means job growth in the photo industry!
I already have my application in for a position as a detective in the Photoshop Gendarmerie (“You airbrush it, we will crush it” is the motto I’m proposing for the force).
I can’t wait to say “step away from ze cloning tool and keep your hands where I can see them” in my New Jersey-accented French.
Um, and, I’d just like to say that I’m a people person and I’m willing to relocate, you know, move to Paris, wear a trenchcoat, smoke Gauloises, affect a world-weary shrug and sigh as I smite the offenders with huge fines, and do close examinations of the live model’s proportions compared to the photo of the model.
And you thought travel photography was a dream job? Mon Dieu! Not compared to this!
