Transcript of Why Photoshop is harmful.

Why Photoshop is harmful to society Sets an unrealistic, high standard for beauty
Causes insecurity for those who don't fit the mold it creates
Makes both the people in the picture and those who see it insecure; model doesn't even look like what the magazine portrays
