“Without Photoshop, there won’t be female bloggers.”
Wait a minute! I did not say the above. Someone has put this quote on his MSN for several days and it bugs me.
I asked myself if it is true. Xiaxue openly admitted she photoshopped her photos. What’s wrong with that? Nothing wrong what.
Some female bloggers appeared like Cambodian maids (I didn’t say this also but found the quote on people’s comment board) on their blogs when they think they can get away without photoshoping.
At other times, some female bloggers put up their nicest (i assume la) photos and say, ‘gosh, i know i look horrible, bad hair day whine whine whine’ and waits for compliments like ‘no, you look absolutely gorgeous’ etc etc.
I also admitted that sometimes, amongst bloggers, we do peek at others photo and pass less than flattering remarks. Humans are cruel. Words popped out unintentionally. Sometimes it is because the image the blogger portrayed in their blogs are way, way up there. Like some high flying career woman who wears only branded goods, travel all over the world, modelling (wtf?) and come with exotic nicknames. So, naturally, we painted an image of her. What more, poor, home-bound, 8-poh (busybodies), nosey-parkers like me who thinks everyone is a swan but me, an ugly old goose tied to her roost.
Jeng-jeng-jeng….when the female blogger put up her photo, naturally, the critique in us cannot wait to tear it apart, right? Admit it la, we do that sometimes. No matter how hard we try to not snigger, thinking of holy thoughts like ‘we are all God’s creation, beautiful in our own way’, we cannot help but pass on one or two comments.
Even if I don’t say it out loud, my mind would have thought so. So, I figure out that it comes to the same sin. Therefore, I said it out loud, and hope to get the un-photoshop image out of my mind. And move on.
Therefore, I must say that Without photoshop, don’t even think of camwhoring. Human are cruel. Bloggers are even crueler. For every one nice comment, you probably get 20 unsaid criticisms. So, what else? Photoshop la!
Take my tips. If you cannot have the real Adobe Photoshop, download free Picasa2.
Use glow, then, soft focus and get those ugly pimples, wrinkles, freckles, spectacles, blemishes, brown spots, huge nose, goofy teeth, loose facial tone, love handles (Cocka, what is love handles huh?), spare tyres, michelin man, droopy breasts, saggy butt, wateva out of sight.
It makes the world a happier place. Trust me! LOL.
See? 500% photoshop-ed with Picasa2. Don’t rub your eyes, it is not your vision. It is my insecure, die-die also must appear ‘normal’ and therefore I blur everything out except the banana leaves rice! LOL.
“Without Photoshop, there won’t be female bloggers.” (should I reveal who said this?)
Agree with the above quote? And do you photoshop your photos?
