The rule change comes in response to a French law asking for more transparency from publications.

Stock photo agency Getty Images has announced that images with models whose bodies have altered to look larger or smaller will no longer be accepted on the platform. The rule change comes in response to a new French law that states that clients have to disclose whether or not the body of a model was digitally altered in post-production. This applies not only to digital media but to print publications, posters, and catalogs as well. A written statement from the company says the new rule will go into effect immediately. “Effective [October 1] 2017, any content submitted where this type of retouching has been carried out will be a breach of our Submission Requirements and your Agreement with us.” The statement goes on to say that other cosmetic alterations, such as changing the color of a model’s hair or fixing skin blemishes, will still be welcomed on the platform.
