Sarkozy Physique Photoshopped

Had it not been for the headlines, I'll bet many people would have skipped over, completely oblivious of, the slight image enhancement of French President Nicolas Sarkozy. Telegraph:

    A magazine owned by a millionaire friend of Nicolas Sarkozy doctored a photograph of the French president to remove his "love handles", it has been claimed.

    Paris Match, the celebrity weekly owned by the media mogul Arnaud Lagardere, was said to have applied a computer air brush to the image of Mr Sarkozy to get rid of the unsightly bulges of fat around his waist.

Pictured rowing a boat in two separate but similar pictures - "before" and "after" versions - it is alleged that Sarcozy's physique was subtly and skillfully manipulated to make him appear more slender and fit than he really is.

The image's telltale manipulation is so imperceptible, it takes white circles to indicate the area of the negligible alterations:
