What people who criticize PS don't understand is that any great photo they have ever seen was enhanced in the darkroom. For some reason that was OK. PS simply takes the place of the darkroom, without the chemicals.

Not everything was done in a darkroom. Sometimes changes were made with an airbrush in a studio. Many women seem to have body issues because they read all these magazines while growing up and everyone in the magazines was gorgeous. They seem to have no idea darkroom and studio work was done after the shutter was released. That makes a degree of sense though. The whole Kodak thing was that you the photographer didn't need to know anything. You drop this cartridge into your Instamatic, take some photos by pressing the only button then winding the wheel, finally drop the cartridge at your corner drug store. Come back next week for your prints... Magic! Isn't that what the pros do to get the photos for the magazines? Well, not really, but no one ever clearly explained to the masses just what went on between the model coming out of make-up and the magazine arriving at the news stand.
That information has always been available for those who cared to investigate but investigation was never as easy as asking Google to cough up a few dozen Photoshop tutorials. And, most people don't know what they don't know, so which teenaged girl is going to start asking those questions? There used to be the notion that if you could see it, it was the truth. Fortunately we are getting away from that a bit now.
