Meaghan Kausman's photoshopped image is above. The untouched photo is below.

From her instagram:

Making art is my passion. Creating beautiful photos and meeting inspiring people has really given me a new lease on life. I recently did a photoshoot wearing Fella Swim, with an extremely passionate and talented underwater photographer, Pip, @seagypsea_photography Her photos are magical; they capture women in water and celebrate their beauty. This morning I was extremely shocked to see that Fella Swim had uploaded a photoshopped version of Pip's original photo to their Instagram page. They had drastically altered my body, thinning out my stomach and thighs in an attempt to box me in to the cultural ideal of beauty. Above is their version, below is the real version. My body is a size 8, not a size 4. That's my body! I refuse to stand by and allow ANY company or person to perpetuate the belief that "thinner is better". All women are beautiful, and we come in different shapes and sizes! This industry is crazy!!!! It is NOT OKAY to alter a woman's body to make it look thinner. EVER!

Several young women (and this only happened with young women, mind you), were surprised to find this week that their yearbook photos had been altered by Wasatch High School staff to appear more modest. Necklines magically rose up and once bare shoulders are now covered by hack-job Photoshop work.

Even better is the non-apology apology issued by superintendent Terry E. Schoemaker: "We only apologize in the sense that we want to be more consistent with what we're trying to do in that sense we can help kids better prepare for their future by knowing how to dress appropriately for things."

Here are a few more of the photos in question, courtesy of MyFox8:
