While the wizard-like software celebrates its 23rd birthday this year, quite a clamorous crowd is much displeased with its body transforming properties. Released in 2011 by group Global Democracy, this video demonstrates how Photoshop may completely alter the body’s appearance to the point where it no longer looks, well, real. And at an age defined by advertising and mass consumption, men and women alike are inundated with unrealistic–and often impossible–examples of the human form at its most beautiful, fit and sleek.
