This paper argues that among female adolescents, Photoshop leads to varying levels of beauty standard internalization and body-related concerns across conditions regarding media and self-photos, media literacy, social contexts, and personal attributes. This interpretation will provide a foundation for new actions as well as an examination of current measures against the potential harms of photo manipulation to the young generation.
