"My belief," says Scott Kelby, president of the Florida-based National Assn. of Photoshop Professionals, "is that every single major magazine cover is retouched. I don't know how they couldn't be." But don't stop there. Aside from U.S. newspapers, most of which do not permit photos to be manipulated, it's quite possible that the vast majority of images seen in the public arena have been altered.

I don't know about the "aside"; newspapers did plenty of cropping, airbrushing, dodging and other retouching, not to mention posing people, in the antediluvian era. For that matter, we used to catch hell if we didn't do what amounted to verbally Photoshopping the blatherings of public figures, though most papers didn't take it as seriously as The New Yorker [where every speaker was either faultlessly grammatical or a saloon character] or The Times [where Ted Bernstein, in one of his books, reamed the desk for not correcting the grammar of the president of Princeton].
