By surprise, many photographers were confronted by another decree placed on the first of October that will govern the work of retouching photographs. The decree placed a rule that all the photographers in France will have to inscribe a phrase ‘retouched photography’ on photos of the bodies of the models that have been retouched. The regulation in this French decree 2017-738 regulates the L2133-2 in the French public health act. The issue is backed up by the health issue thereby refraining the public from the belief that the shape of the body can be achieved through diet only.

The decree follows after the justification of the health fact in the population that majority of the people between the age of 30 and 40 years especially the adolescents suffer from the disease anorexia that has killed many. This is not only the decree governing models about health issues. Before, a decree that the models had to first present their health certificate for the general assessment of their state of health and body mass index was released. The judgment that follows non-compliancy of the decree is an imprisonment for six months and a 75 thousand Euros as clearly outlined in the article L712-2-1 and L7123-27 in the French code.
