Photoshop is a brilliant tool but most people don't and can't use it.  Rather, there are dozens of enhancing apps available such as Face EU which are used to create Photoshop like results without the steep learning curve.

In many ways the mass media (magazines and digital media) are guilty of encouraging girls and a lot of guys in to manipulating their images.  Art editors have been airbrushing shots of models since the 1950s and probably a bit earlier, however the really large manipulation of images started in the 1970s and early 80s where just about all images in many women's magazines were adulterated to make the models look better, taller and with flawless skin etc.

My wife used to complain that I'd not use anything apart from the basic editing tools in Photoshop on her images, now she loves the fact that the shots are the proverbial "warts and all" and complains about friends who alter their images so heavily.  I simply call the over manipulation of images "false advertising" or "misrepresentation of goods" if the girl is hunting for a boyfriend or husband.

Do anything would cost your silver-coins although sometimes you haven't noticed that! -----------For an example:It seems that breathing is free but in fact that ordinary action really needs money since we have spent too much things on against air-pollution!

(It is a joke if you take and keep other‘s photo as yours for a long time! )

I prefer the terms "self deluding" and misrepresentation of goods.
