Surprised there are no examples of boobs or butts being photoshopped like you see on Facebook and stuff.

I'm not sure what specific examples you're reffering to, but there's this at least.

Though I take much more issues with Kawakami's flat face here. Speaking of...

You'd never know that it's supposed to be her on the left. While she isn't as hideous as she was on the other cover, she's completly unrecognizable here. I don't know the girl on the right, but checking out some actual screencaps of the movie I'd say she didn't fare much better.

So I don't know the one on the left but Sayaka Aiyo's face on the right looks horrible. Like why is half her face melting?!

And I was talking about stuff like this :

That is a good point, our examples don't really help much, when people don't know what the actresses actually look like.

So here we go:

Girl on the left (And the big-ass girl on the first cover.), Yuu Kawakami:

And the girl on the right, Sayaka Aishiro.

I just grabbed these images from her blog. Unlike with Kawakami, I don't have any movies of her to take some screenshots, but I hope these'll do.

They both look a lot different than they do on those covers, that's for sure.

I don't think you should assume the "normal" photos or screenshots are representative of what the actress look like either. There are a lot of ways that an actress might look better or worse in photos or videos than she does in real life.

Examples?

As I said, they are all pretty bad. Seriously though, if I had to choose just one that is especially bad it would be the Yuna Shiina one:

I avoid this video for a long time because of this cover, but I finally downloaded it after seeing the screenshots and she looks much, much prettier in the video. I don't know if the cover picture is the result of bad photography or bad photoshopping. Maybe it's both. Am I the only one who doesn't like these covers?

I dunno, I've always been pretty fond of WAAP's covers in general. They may have overdone the lighting on this one, but it looks like her alright.

Edit: Skimming through them right now, I'd say their Dream Shower series has some pretty good covers.

Here's Tsubomi again, in contrast to the elf-monstrosity that I posted earlier.

And some more good ones:

The only real photoshop monstrosity I've seen so far is poor old Ai Uehara.

With all these terrible photoshops I wonder if they even hire pro photographers for these shoots.

The article below mentions something about make up artists working in JAV that i found interesting.

http://www.tokyokinky.com/make-up-cosmetic-japanese-porn/

''It reminds us of an interview we once read with a man claiming to have worked for a while as a hair and make-up artist for porn stars in Japan, such as Azusa Nagasawa.

He said they actually focus mostly on the photos shot to promote a film, rather than the main shoot of the film itself. So the make-up artists prepare the stars for stills and rarely get to see the film being shot. He said he wasn’t close to the directors.''

So perhaps it's not entirely the cause of photo shopping but rather the different levels of make up they wear and the way they are posed for the cover photos. Obviously it doesn't explain the terrible photoshop creations we do see often.

The cover of GVG-038 Reiko Sawamura Mother Estrus Black always stood out to me because they made her look like another actor (reminds me of Rei) with so editing, removing like half the length of her long face. Which I find really odd for a mature work since those mature features are usually what attract people.

What story? Hibiki Otsuki with someone else's boobs. She's naturally got a northern Japan Aminishiki chest so they amplified it a ton.

Aminishiki is currently the oldest top level sumo wrestler.
