before there was photoshop…


before there was photoshop… there were pin-up drawings of real photos of real woman that they still augmented! WTF!? woman always need to be tweaked and snipped, even at the hand of some artist in the 1950’s!?

most of us are familiar with the classic pin-up drawings of the 1940’s and 50’s, but i didn’t realize that they were based off of real photos of women. Retronaut posted these intriguing before and after photos of pin-up girls proving that, even back then, they felt the need to slim and embellish women’s bodies. what do you all think? is this just art or do you think back then it had an effect on women’s body issues like excessive photoshopping does to us today?  – see more about photoshopped photos here!
