Slimming lens

OK this is a little tongue in cheek but I've got to find a slimming lens! My wife hates every and all pictures I take of her. I think she's gorgeous and at a size 8 there's no argument that she's fat but I'm pulling my hair out with her and the fact I can't use any pictures I take of her!

Is there a stretch function in Photoshop?

Sometimes I'm serious and sometimes not, but I consider sarcasm an artform. Which is it today?

It may be the way your posing her, there is a Liquify tool in PS that can be used, you can also change to a slightly lower shooting angle that can elongate legs etc

Or you could squeeze the whole image (select all/free transform). As much as 95% can look ok. Take care that the face still looks natural though

Theres a filter in Photoshop that should help.

Here is a picture of my wife on the beach in Wales last year ... behind her you can see a group of her female friends forming a queue down to the water.

I have an Optio with a digital slimming filter built in, considering how desirable this feature appears to be I could be open to serious offers.
