A journalist named Esther Honig has sent a picture of her to various photoshop artists around the world with the simple instruction "Make me beautiful".

Here is what they sent back 5-30 dollars later...

This is less a statement about unobtainable beauty standards, and more a statement about unobtainable photoshop skills.

I prefer the original image over any of the Photoshopped ones.

Yeah. Me too.

Venezuela #3 is ok. The smoothing is just about tolerable and they did keep the dark spot on her forehead.

Philippines #10 (have to click on it to fix aspect ratio) is actually pretty good if you ignore the eye cancer background. Very minimal smoothing although they did get rid of the dark spot.

Vietnam #24 isn't that bad either. A little weird. Lots of smudging in most places but extreme sharpness in other places. Left ear correction is alright to just the eyes are "a tad overdone".

USA. You shouldn't do your photoshopping on craigslist...
India #13 must like their women oil painting style...

But yeah. It's hard to improve on nature if you're already starting above average.

The very first cracks me up because they totally changed her face - she has somebody else's eyes in her head!

And what is with the people who put heavy eyebrows on her?

I guess the ones who can photoshop well but make weird choices are more interesting to me than the ones who are just incompetent.

The first USA one just looks... off. It looks like they shrank the head overall, but left the features the same size, so everything looks too big for her face.

Maybe the Photoshopper in that one is an Anime fan, with the gigantic eyes and mouths

The first one from the Philippines was interesting. Apart from unnaturally elongating the image, they put her in what looks like professional business clothing. At least that one photoshopper saw that as adding beauty to the original image.

The image is only squeezed due to the HTML. Click on the picture.

The two from the US are HORRIBLE.

Fascinating to see the countries that either darkened or lightened her pigmentation. As a dumb American I hadn't considered that at all.
