Whoever made that photoshop decision? Line them up and cut them down!

Jon T

I take issue actually.

this wasn't presented as a news story, it is editorial and quite apparent that the photo is altered in at least one respect - there is no background.


I have to agree with Jon T and sympathize with Garret's assement. The shorts clashed with the colour scheme of the rest of the cover, it's a small change compared to the PSing of models on most covers. No big deal.

Brian Snyder

NO, it is not acceptable to change the color of his shorts. Where is the line? Maybe trim him down a but more (or add a few pounds depending on your politics?) Why not change the cover design rather than alter and falsify the photograph? Why is the cover design/color scheme more immutable and sacred than the photograph? The President is not some cover model; there is no equivalency here.
