1950's Photoshop: Pin-Up Girls Before And After

Ever wonder about the process that went on behind the scenes of those classic pin-up images that adorned the noses of bombers and the walls of soldiers barracks in the 1940's and 50's? Well check out these great before and after images of 1950's pin-up girls which gives you a sneak peak of the photograph that came before the artists rendering.

As an addendum: They did those images in illustration form instead of photographs, because photographs would be considered pornography, which was illegal. 

I saw it on Pawn Stars :P

I don't think these images are being used with the artists permission.

you dont need artists permission,,its call public domain

 It's also called sarcasm.

Ah! How refreshing! What real women are supposed to look like! Real Curves!! I love the pin-up ages, very inspiring. Thanks for the share!


I'm a VERY small business...I use images to make charms (Glass with image behind that I solder) ... I have been desperately searching for a way to confirm whether or not certain vintage PinUps are in public domain.

I am finding conflicting information and was hoping that you might share the route you took to confirm Public domain status on these images.

I would be most grateful!
