24 Animated Gifs of Celebrities Before and After Retouching

The debate on retouching is definitely a heated one, and none so much more than the retouching done on celebrities. Just recently Noam Galai posted about the unrealistic retouching done on the new Beyonce ad from Cavalli. Keeping the topic open take a look at these animated .gifs of celebrities before and after the royal Photoshop treatment. Do you think retouchers sometimes go too far, or do they look acceptable to you?

This is too funny. The Megan Fox portrait is a retouch I did for personal practice several years ago and it keeps randomly appearing on sites like this.

How/Where did you get the RAW (or untouched photo)?

Honestly I don't even remember. Here's the the post from 2009 - http://www.flickr.com/photos/hd500/3816194622/in/set-72157623903776496

Retouch - Practice
David Leyland's picture

Angelina Jolie looks stunning before and after. Apart from some minor blemishes nothing changed. But who made such a mess of that poor lama it looked really attractive before the retouch!

I couldn't tell what had changed at all.

boah some look real crap untouched.. thank god for retouching.

lmao on the last one! trollolololol

Amazing how many were heavily touched and how many were not that heavily touched.

Hahahaha thanks for the last shot...it made my day

Katie Perry and Megan Fox barely needed anything.

None of them need anything.

Katy definitely didn't. She's foxy either way.

About half of these are not professional retouches. Just someone with PS goofing around with filters. The real ones are subtly disturbing though.

Do you guys take all your posts on reddit?

Rebecca Britt's picture

No someone sent this to me on Facebook.

Katy looks better without PS

The Jennifer Lawrence one disgusts me..she looked beautiful and curvy and natural before and they took away her natural figure. Not right.

Nice article...

Just wrong what they did to Jennifer Lawerance.

the last one is hilarious!

Interesting information you wrote here, keep posting.Thanks

Wow, Photoshop can fix everything :)

Oh my gosh the last one lol
but seriously though I don't think that enough of society understands that not even perfect models are actually "perfect" in real life.

Nope... You're mistaking a 2004 Keira in King Arthur with a 2011 Natalie in Your Highness

angelina looks no different before and after

it's true

finding this a bit late but...I remember when I worked for a company that used some Wrestling stars (don't want to name the wrestling brand) but they told use to take the photos THEY SENT us and "remove the fat, any blood, needle scars, remove some of the sweat/shine, bulk some of the muscles some, remove bags under eyes, remove extra hair near briefs, etc." I was SHOCKED that they wouldn't send us those images already retouched. *this is/was a major TV-wrestling group in the US*

Great tutorial!

The last one though
