A portrait of cosmonaut Elena Serova (below right) was released this week, as she is a crewmember of the upcoming Soyuz TMA-14 launch. It is the same portrait that was released earlier this year (left) as she was backup for Soyuz TMA-12. Only a new emblem was photoshopped into the new photo. That is not a first and has also been done with portraits of NASA astronauts.

However, I noticed that somebody also found it necessary to give Serova a digital facelift.

Is this unique to Serova's portrait or has this kind of touch-up been done before?

I don't have the program, but will someone please Photoshop Steven Spielberg in the foreground? You know which pose I'm talking about, right?

In the old days, they used to Photoshop cosmonauts OUT of the photo.

I wonder if they do this to the men too?

If you take a close look at many of the recent WSS portraits, you'll notice all the suit neck rings have been photoshopped.

I have seen early Scott Carpenter portraits where they masked the 'dent' in his forehead that was caused by (I believe) a motorcycle accident.

You're quite correct Ed. Carpenter's astronaut career was effectively ended by a motorcycle accident in Bermuda.

Then it must have been some earlier accident. I'll have to look that up in his book. The photos I was talking about were from early in his career, so the accident must have been before that.

Another altered photo is AS15-85-11471 taken on the lunar surface. The discarded white object seen under the rover in the ALSJ image is not there in the JSC image.
