Photoshop Tutorials for Ralph Lauren and Everyone Else

Ralph Lauren’s recent ad that features a model whose head is wider than her waist is just the latest example of what happens when undereducated – or misguided – people use technology. Following an uproar about the zealous use of Adobe Photoshop to present a distorted view of women’s bodies, Ralph Lauren admitted that “we are responsible for the poor imaging and retouching.” With all the free Photoshop tutorials readily available on the Internet, graphic designers have no excuse for not keeping up with the latest techniques. So I’ve compiled a bunch of these tutorials for you, Ralph, and any other designers who’d like to maintain a good reputation. After all, you don’t want to end up on Photoshop Disasters – not all publicity is good publicity.
