    Can't quite see why, when the computer equivalent of "airbrushing" is nowdays the norm in magazines and newspapers, particularly on the women's pages/beauty/fashion etc.

    Because the advert said the differences were down to the product being advertised, when in fact the make up played a minor part in comparison to the airbushing.

    It's like saying my Ferrari goes faster than your Micra because of the brand of tyres, when in fact it's down to the Ferrari having a much more powerful engine.

    Rather ironic as cosmetics are "meat space" airbrushing.

    Some of my girl models have very good skin complections. Does this mean i have to keep and library of spots and boils to make the images look original???:rolleyes:

    No. You are just very very lucky. Enjoy your good fortune. Incidently the Google spell checker only got 'complections' right as a fifth choice.
