Avoiding Photoshop

Can you photoshop this? 
Why dont you just use photoshop?
You can do anything in photoshop, right?
Can you make me look skinner?

Any photographer suffers from honestly answering this question. 

But the real question I ask is like this, why not just take the nicest photo the first time so noone needs this photoshop that you speak of?

If you can avoid something in your photograph then take the extra second to clean the surface, to wipe a brow or to wash your hands. what ever is it that you are taking a picture of just make sure its clean, skinny, and beautiful! 

Obviously these images above are not photoshoped or anything of high quality, they are from my cell phone. no photoshop has been used. 

Can you figure it out?
