These has been a lot of controversy lately about the ethics of photoshop and the beauty industry. Photoshop is just a tool, and you can use it or abuse it. I personally don’t think that putting a ban or restrictions on the use of photoshop will change anything as far as self-image or eating disorders. These come from deeper self-esteem issues that can’t be solved by simply putting blinders on what we look at. Having said that, as retouchers we have a responsibility to avoid doing “inhuman” retouches. A good retouch is when you don’t know that an image has been retouched.
