"touch up" your photo into a totally new you

A sharp-eyed reader named Yvonne sends me to this link, informing me about this ridiculous banner ad for PortraitProfessional, an airbrushing and photo editing software that will apparently make you look "better"... in seconds! That's the screen shot of the ad above, and here's animated banner sequence:

Am I the only finds this rather disturbing? With this awesome software, you can magically "touch up" your photo... to make yourself look someone completely different. Completely different. A totally new you for your Facebook profile. Narrower face, big weirder eyes -- your friends will not recognize you! Forgive me, but the "after" photo above makes this person face look, um, kind of demonic.
