Maybe they changed the overall tint in order to blur the edit (shirt is still unbuttoned at the top, but covers more):



But to give them credit, they just wanted to make you look a little more respectable.


And the button was removed.

Can't wait to see what they did to the other pictures.

It's EXTREMELY rude to do that. You don't like the photo? It doesn't fit your communal standards? Ask for another, or ask for permission to photoshop. To unilaterally edit a photo to make someone "more respectable" is massively insulting.

It might be EXTREMELY rude based on English speaking etiquette, but acceptable respectable practice in regular english speaking etiquette.

I have so much to say, but for real, why did they make me orange?
Also, how many other edits to the picture can you find?

They wanted to chat about Lufthansa and I'd tell them what I thought of the Tweet.
Then somehow I became a cover story 🙈
did they tell you that you would be the cover story or did you just find out from seeing the preview of the mag

Gave me some funky capris instead of a bathing suit and B"H covered my elbows.
@AJK why didn't you mention this toeiva at the time anyway?

That exceeded the character limit (or attention span). But the shirt remained unmodified.

Could be, but let me know which airline's first class that is then :)

Maybe you should run a DDMS post on how to get an empty seat on a plane. Looks like AMI got the secret sauce for that.

Coming to a newsstand near you, (Post here if you can get pics of the story):



I sent a couple headshots and told them they had to give credit to the photographer. They contacted the photographer and got some other pictures from the photoshoot (they didn't like this one https://www.dansdeals.com/about-us/).

The photographer is very annoyed as she didn't give usage rights to edit the photo and they didn't give her credit. Then again she said she doesn't want the credit with what they did to the photo.

Sigh.

Original pic, without the orange face, yellow teeth, and tznius button:
