I don't know very much about the myriad of uploaded pictures on the internet or how they have been ...

The massaging techniques are all pretty standard though Asian women in particular tend to be over enhanced digitally.  This trend started about a decade ago in Japan where a handful of amateur photographers started turning amateur models in to Manga / Anime looking faces. It then spread to Singapore in particular via the largest Asian photography forum in SE Asia (clubsnap), and then to Taiwan and China.

It's sad this has happened but digital manipulation is so commonplace in publications and have been used in the west for at least the last 20 years that I can recall.

Some of the techniques include careful use of what's known in in the industry as the marching ants, aka lassoo or selection tool, sharpening of areas such as the whites and iris of the eyes, eyebrows and applying smoothing filters of various kinds to the skin to make it look less realistic. Sharpening of the eyelids and teeth, mouth etc are also used.  Many images require 1-5 hours of manipulation.  

I hope this helps.

Tedbrent. Cease and desist with the personal attacks please.  This is your first and only warning. ...


  You mean he is a well-meaning person? Lol. He has bashed lots of people here; typically, he just says you are stupid every time when he fails to talk his detractors into buying into his arguments.

  Guess what? He is not even Chinese nor someone who speaks Chinese like me. Whose side are you on, huh? Don't be judgmental, sir. There are no grounds for you to ban me because I have never said anything that's near the knuckle. By contrast, that robert is just pushing the envelope when he tries to sing the praises of North Korea.  Plus, robert is no great shakes when it comes to offering his two-cents worth other than his repeated recriminations against capitalism. He once even suggested that Taiwan is a colony for America.  How on earth China Daily doesn't ban him for being a dissident?  Because he is  a soi-disant American? This is China Daily, not America Daily. If a mod like you condones such soapbox remarks, then don't cavil at me for not respecting an old geezer like him.  Actually, that robert has taken a dig at me several times,  saying I'm just a tyke. I have the right to fire back and show him that it would be wrong for an old guy like him to sneer at me and get away from it.  On top of that, he should be held accountable for his own rudeness as a guy who is much older than me. Otherwise, it will be not fair to my way of thinking.

I know that you guys are confidants and it's understandable for you to go to the wall for him after he reported me again. But please tell me what have I done to him. Personal attacks? Could you pin it down for me? Robert has uttered lots of  repugnant remarks on this forum, calling his detractors simpletons and me stupid stooge of capitalism. Do you think the terms used by him are acceptable ones ?  I would say his acts border on personal attacks as well. Why don't you ask him not to roast people who are not agreeable to his political stance?


  Are you Chinese? If you are going to ban me, then I think you are not a dutiful mod. It will be a disgrace for a mod like you to mistreat me like this without figuring out the root cause of such verbal confrontation. By the by,  are you implying that I just can't utter obnoxious words like him simply because he is much older than me? . Please go check all the threads and replies written by that Robert claiming he is American before  you make such decisions.

   Could it be that you want to  ban me because he is someone claiming he is American?

  It's okay for you to ban me or even find a way to refrain me from logging on to this website as a mod. But you have to show me your smoking-gun that suggests that I have made such personal attacks. again  since the last time robert reported me Otherwise, you are just someone trying to abuse your power.

  It's okay for you to ban me. I couldn't care less. This is just a forum, not your own property. I can visit other websites and find  like-minded friends there, ahem,  if you think that a new arrival  like me just can't retort  when I'm firing in the lines or being derided by an old chap like that robert.

  So just ban me to show your friendship  to your amigo robert. Whatever.

  I feel sorry for America if robert is American. The fact is he is not American at all. You must have been duped by him.

Okay, are you going to ban me like a despot? Huh? That's your stock-in-trade, right? Only bandits like robert would report me like this. Yikes. Arghhhhhhhhh!

Did I say you would be banned?. I told you to stop the personal attacks.

Nationality has nothing to do with my actions nor race.  Judging by your over reaction I'd say you're suffering from a guilty conscience.

Where Robert237 is from has no relevance, nor does any complaint he may or may not have made.  The fact is you have overstepped the line and violated the "TOS" a.k.a Terms of Service of the CD Forum and forum rules.

I would suggest you cease all personal attacks forthwith.

Bans here do not occur until you have multiple warnings and fail to adhere to them.  

As for my being a despot, sorry, I'm just your average run of the mill tyrant.

  See you are making pontificating utterances again. Personal attacks? He has been bad-mouthing me ever since last month, using assorted scurrilous terms to describe me. Why don't you check it out before making such madcap comments?  I once got an alert telling me not to bring up his family members when arguing with him. I haven't mentioned his Chinese wife again ever since then. Why don't you run a check before asking me to behave well?
