Talk December 2011 - Christmas Shots talked about photo editing
software that was used to pretty up my picture for the company
That picture is now two years old and needs to
be replaced and when it is, it will be "beautified"
using the same software as the last time. I want red eye reduction,
color instead of winter pale, the fatigue lifted, and all the
I'm not doing this for Christian Mingle, it's for
the company website and in case you don't know what I already know
- nobody is going to hire me based on my looks. Unless maybe they
want to feel better about themselves and if you do please contact
me through the website (www.cnci.us).
There isn't a man (who knows what's good for him) or
woman alive that would disagree with the statement "All women
are beautiful.". Dove agrees. Dove celebrates real beauty, not
photo-shop, airbrushed, or balloon padded Victoria's Secret beauty,
and they're doing something about it. With a computer Trojan Horse
Yep, Dove has launched a Trojan Horse Virus
attack on people who want to "beautify" the already
beautiful. The Trojan Horse would also attack me, the not already
beautiful, call it collateral damage, acceptable losses, or Dove
What they did was create a Photoshop Action that
people could download for free and said it would add a healthy skin
glow to images. They made it a "zip" file so anti-virus
software would not detect the real payload, which is a virus that
undoes all the edits made prior to running it. Imagine the poor
advertising person who spends hours getting an image just right and
wants to finish it with a healthy glow. One click and, KABOOM!
It's all in good fun though, Dove doesn't mean any
harm, they're just sending a message. Why? Why did Alice Cooper put
flammable panties in his album jackets? In any case the change that
makes the changes undone can be undone. It says so right in
this video, it's only about a minute and a half.
Dove: Thought Before Action
Maybe Dove's campaign will get some people to come
around, let's just hope that Victoria's Secret doesn't start
celebrating real beauty by selling exploding bras.
Be beautiful, be real, or not, that's your
call, but don't stand too close to me Victoria, and
that's Cocktail Talk.
