This unrealistic portrayal of images in fashion magazines could be spurring an unhealthy trend among common people, who may often compare themselves against these picture perfect models and celebrities.

This has led feminist legislators in Britain, Norway and France to ask for labeling of digitally altered photos. Recently, the American Medical Association developed a policy on body image and advertising condemning the practice of altering photographs especially when it can encourage unrealistic expectations of body image.
