This summer, a Korean language Facebook page called We Do Phoshop appeared on Kotaku and took over the internet with its humorous Photoshops (see above). Now, those internet wizards want to make you beautiful.
If you are not familiar with We Do Phoshop's handiwork, people submit their photos for the group to digital alter, putting in requests for what they want changed.
Here's what We Do Phoshop was been up to:
Note: This post contains content that some readers might find objectionable.
The request: Get my friend's arm out of the way.
The request: Change it so I'm holding something great.
The request: Erase the date and make the make the background plain.
The request: Help me make it feel like I went to the horse track and took this photo.
The request: Make me more more friendly with the cat.
The request: Make this slumber more dramatic.
The request: Cover up my chest in the photo.
The request: This was taken in front of the race track. Please add one horse.
The request: Make us look more comfortable while we are sleeping.
The request: Get rid of the toothbrush and my facial scruff.
As tipster Sang points out, We Do Phoshop has created another Facebook page called "We Do Beauti." On it, the group makes your photos all beautiful—or, as We Do Beauti says, "tunes" the images. The results are idealized, often unrealistic, images of beauty that exist in South Korea.
We Do Beauti has just gotten started, so the page hasn't quite reached critical mass yet.
This is more in line with what people call...traditional Photoshop! And thus, it doesn't quite have the same hook. The Kim Jong-un 'shop, though, is pretty great.
