One of the awesome things about my job is that have the leeway to spend time actually learning stuff, and get paid for it.
We had been talking about photo manipulation, and I decided to show my coworkers what exactly could be done with effective Photoshop techniques.

So, I liquified yesterday. Disclaimer: This was NOT about body image, or making things “better” — it was more as an illustration of just how far one can take image manipulation, and how body imagery as magazines portray it is just about as unrealistic as it can be these days.

More after the jump. If you’re not a family member, move along — this will be boring as hell to you.
