What McDonald’s Menu items look like before and after image retouching ...

YOON SANG WONG, TAXI:

It’s no secret that photos of menu items undergo retouching to make them look more presentable and appetizing. Similar to many other food brands, McDonald’s applies these edits to its ads. 

This particular story shows you before-and-after image retouching of some of McDonald's menu items. That's what the title says. And they show pictures too. And yet, I can't help but feel the author is making some kind of statement, a dare of some kind if you will.

Well, let me ask you, as you seem to imply, Yong Sang Wong: The problem is ... ?

You see, every now and then, I come across articles and stories like this that has some kind of passive-aggressive stance towards Photoshop and Photoshop artists.

This may seem a very simple matter to most people, you included, but I'll be the first to tell you that it's not as simple as you think it is. There's a whole lot to unpack here.

Seriously, people .. what is the problem? Do you want to talk about it?
