I found this rather intriguing. Marie Southard Ospina, who is a Fashion & Beauty Editor for the website Bustle, sent an image of herself to a Photoshop expert in twenty-one different countries. Marie considers herself to be a plus-sized woman, although in the image she provided, personally I don’t think she is. Regardless, the object of her "experiment" was for these Photoshop experts to transform her image into what they consider to be a beautiful woman.
Below are some of the results. I created some animated gif’s for a few of them to better visualize the editing. Marie’s article is very fascinating to read and includes more images that she received. You may view the full article here.
First, the image of Marie that she sent around the world.
And now, a few of the returned images.
