Image manipulation is ubiquitous: in the twenty-first century, it seems that “everyone knows” that the images presented in the media, from magazine covers to product advertisements, have been edited to seamlessly and effortlessly convey contemporary social norms. The recognition of this image manipulation is evident throughout popular culture: a Google search of “Photoshop fails” will return thousands of articles cataloging the most outrageous retouching disasters.
