Directly from my personal email: “Effective October 1, 2017 a new French law obliges clients who use commercial images in France to disclose whether the body shape of a model has been retouched to make them look thinner or larger.

As a result, also effective October 1st, we have amended our Creative Stills Submission Requirements to require that you do not submit to us any creative content depicting models whose body shapes have been retouched to make them look thinner or larger.

Please note that other changes made to models like a change of hair color, nose shape, retouching of skin or blemishes, etc., are outside the scope of this new law, and are therefore still acceptable. 

Effective 1st October 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.”

Important – Retouched Models
In order to comply with a new French law, from October 1, 2017, we cannot accept creative content depicting models if the models’ body shapes have been retouched to make them look thinner or larger than they are in reality. Any content submitted where this type of retouching has been carried out will be a breach these Submission Requirements and your Agreement with us.

Please note that other changes made to models like a change of hair color, nose shape, retouching of skin or blemishes, etc., are outside the scope of this new law, and are therefore still acceptable.

Sincerely,
