Photoshop vids of interest

  • And Now For Something Completely Different: Photoshop ninja/uncannable rhyme animal Deke McClelland puts his skills to the test, dropping 101 Photoshop Tips in 5 Minutes.  As he says, "It’s bold, it’s brash, it’s ridiculous. It’s a podcast with serious issues. Enjoy."  The KBSC geek (and occasional Nada Surf fan) in me certainly did.
  • "Have we created an unattainable image of perfection?" Diet.com explores The Photoshop Effect and the Photoshop guns hired to tune up celebrities.  (The video has racked up nearly 900,000 views in just 10 days.) [Via Steve Johnson]
  • Photoshop gets used in a music video–not just in the production, but in the video itself.  (Hey, gotta love the use of those CS3 video layers.)

    You always find such interesting stuff to post. Hey even a Deke blog.
    The music video is pretty cool, except I must confess turning off the, um, music.

    RE: Photoshopping celebrity photos.
    Is this much different than vaseline and gauss over the lens in the old days? For that matter, can’t the same objections be made to cosmetic surgery for creating an unobtainable standard?
    BTW, I got a lot more out of the Dove video that IMHO addressed the subject in a move subtle but more powerful way. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYhCn0jf46U
