Or is the digital photo retouching software being pushed to this site by Google the most frightening and monstrous distortion of a childs face you have ever seen?

I'm with you. The ad, and retouch, of which you speak, I think is poorly done. Subsequently, in my opinion, a bad advertisement.

Glad to learn I'm not alone in that belief.
Horrendously poor advertising, IMO.

It is not an ad for software, but a service. People actually think that making kid's pageant photos look like that is a good thing. Take a look at these abominations:

http://www.naturalbeautiescontest.ho.../retoucha.html

http://www.naturalbeautiescontest.ho.../retouch2.html

Larger version of ad pic:

http://www.naturalbeautiescontest.ho...retouch4a.html

A lot of the people who put their kids through this think it is obscene when we take a picture of a nude 18 year-old, yet you can't tell me that this shot isn't meant to "glamourize" a young child:

http://www.naturalbeautiescontest.ho...retouch1b.html

I love the irony of the URL. "Natural" indeed.

Anybody remember those velvet paintings you could find hanging in cheap motel rooms of the kids with the freaky big eyes?
