Newsweek Photoshops age-progressed Princess Diana next to Kate Middleton for cover shot

The headline:  When Photoshop attacks! Celebs get digitally nipped and tucked

The summary:  In conjunction with a story suggesting what life would be like if Princess Diana were here, Newsweek created a shot of a digitally age-progressed photo of Diana walking next to Kate Middleton for its cover shot.

The reaction:  A lot of people seem to be up in arms over this but I don’t think it’s quite that bad.

I think the story is reasonable enough to run but, yeah, maybe the Photoshop job and the milk carton-like age progression is a little much.  I can understand how some people who hold Diana in high esteem might be bothered by this but ultimately I think there are more important things to worry about.
