Digital alteration of photographs in consumer magazines

Journal of Mass Media Ethics 6 (3):175 – 181 (1991)

Abstract

Digital manipulation of photographs raises a different set of questions for magazine editors than it does for news.paper editors. Interviews with editors of 13 consumer magazines reveal that digital alteration depends largely on the editorial profile of the magazine. All editors interviewed refused to digitally manipulate news photos; however, opinions varied on the treatment of feature and cover photos.
