Touching up celebrities’ photos in magazines is nothing new, but two magazines running the same photo, but and touching up different things is. An image of Angelina Jolie previously shown on the cover of In Touch Magazine showed up recently in People Magazine looking a lot less photoshoped. The red carpet image of Angelina from the Cannes Film Festival was first shown on the cover of In Touch with her arm looking as smooth as a baby’s bottom. Later, People mag ran the photo unretouched showing Angie’s arm with veins and all. When The New York Post first uncovered this story and contacted Richard Spencer, editor-in-chief of In Touch, the magazine defended its choice saying, “You’re right, we softened those veins. The arm was very very veiny”. They said that unless it was a story about Angelina’s body itself, the photoshoping made no difference.
