… WHOA, NELLIE. EVEN A HORSE APPEARS NOT TO BE SAFE FROM AN EPIC PHOTOSHOP DISASTER
Why should human beings be the only species affected by the deathly powers of OTT Photoshop? Initially, it seemed that horses, too were at risk: American Apparel ad, noted by Fashionista: ” Usually it’s models’ bodies that get the Photoshop treatment, but as this recent American Apparel flub proves, not even animal’s bodies are safe from overzealous retouchers.
At a first glance it might be easy to miss, but once you notice that the horse’s whole body has been erased, it’s hard to notice anything else about the picture. We don’t get it: Was the horse’s body just too fat? Too wrinkled? Were its ribs too visible? (We kid). Maybe the retoucher was just a big Godfather fan.
The Photoshop fail has the added unhappy effect of appearing as if the girl in the photo is hugging a horse’s disembodied head. Creepy. “
Fashionista “reached out” to AA for a comment and the Creative Director was kind enough to draw this image to their attention:
Fashionista explained: ” Turns out the horse’s body was not a victim of photoshop after all.
American Apparel’s creative director Iris Alonzo was kind enough to get back to us to explain that it’s merely the angle and cropping of the image that makes it appear as if the horse’s body was not there. And she attached the original, un-color corrected image as proof. Who would have thunk it?”
