Not an issue of self-image

That's all well and good to say.  I agree that many women are misled by such editing into thinking their own skin is terribly imperfect when in fact they are normal.

But the reality of the situation is that an image shot for a model to find work MUST be retouched, because everyone else's is.  It's not a matter of self-image, it's a commercial issue.  The people looking at portfolios all know model images have been retouched, but if one looks different (in a bad way) they will not take the time to think about why, they will simply discard that model from consideration.
