As of the 1st October 2017, stock photography website Getty Images will no longer be accepting images of models whose bodies have been photoshopped to look thinner or larger. 

The change in their terms comes after France passed a law that means after 1 October 2017, certain commercial images will have to be labelled so viewers know that the image is digitally altered. 

The announcement was made to its photographers via email, of which DPReview received from a reader, and the same guidelines apply to iStock submissions, too. 

The law only applies to changes in overall body shape so removing blemishes, changing hair colour etc. is still allowed.
