Getty Images Is Banning All Photos with Photoshopped Models


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.
