Default "Make me look better" mode

Just a chuckle here.

I'm surprised that camera manufacturers haven't figured out a mode that will let you take a picture of a person (or people), and do the following:

- make them look thinner (selectable range of weight loss)

- AND fix up any facial blemishes

- AND take away grey hair.

- AND whiten teeth.

Maybe it's going a little too far, but lets say Junior in the photo is wearing shabby clothes. How about being able to select a nice shirt or a suit and replace his wardrobe in the shot?

Some of the HP models (for example, the R927) had a "thinning" feature under Artistic Effects that you can use to make someone look slimmer.

In addition most of what you suggest can be done to any photo right now in Adobe's Photoshop Elements 6.0 and later.

To add to your wish list:

* Long lens - at least 3,000 mm
* Stabalized so you can shoot a bird while sliding down hill at 70 km/hr
* Small enough to fit in a shirt pocket
* Flash powerful enough to fill a football stadium
* ...

To the original request, how about adding wireless global search and replace- any camera in the vicinity that gets my picture, has it replaced by a shot of Robert Redford. Wouldn't be noticed on the little camera LCD, since we look so much alike anyway, but I do like my peivacy.
