It seems like every photo you see online today has been edited, filtered or changed in some way.

That won’t be so for Getty Images anymore! They are putting a stop to it, announcing that no images will be allowed that have Photoshopped models to look thinner. They say: “As a leader in visual communications, Getty Images upholds the responsibility to ensure accurate and authentic visual representation. Our perceptions of what is possible are often shaped by what we see: positive imagery can have direct impact on fighting stereotypes, creating tolerance, and empowering communities to feel represented in society. That’s why over the last several years, Getty Images has made a concerted effort to change the way women and other marginalized communities are represented in media and advertising.
