On the cover of the Rolling Stone

The after picture has added a lot of 'glow' to her body, given her bigger breasts, and has done something with her hands.

It'll come as no shock or surprise to anybody that the Rolling Stone magazine tweaks their photos a little here and there. And honestly, I don't have a problem with that either; they're in the business of selling magazines, and I've been in the magazine industry for long enough to know that this particular truism is as true as they come: a sexier lady on the front will sell more magazines.

Nonetheless, it's always interesting to see quite what gets changed; so when a friend of mine e-mailed me the before-and-after versions of these photos, I couldn't help but make a comparison... Check 'em out.

In the comments - what do you think about editing photos like this? A good idea, or an outright lie?
