1. The "Strongest" Dude
Here’s the thing, we can understand why someone would want to flex how strong they are on social media. The only problem is that real strength takes work - and if you're going to fake it with photoshop you better pay attention to the details.
But this guy forgot to hide the mirror image on the background which proved how bad of an editing job he had done.
2. Was Adding The Starbucks Logo Really Necessary?
For years now, Starbucks has done a pretty impressive job with their marketing campaigns, even convincing people in countries where Starbucks doesn’t exist that they need a cup of the heavenly coffee.
For some unexplained reason, this young woman thought she had to photoshop a Starbucks logo on the coffee she is holding, but sadly, it didn't go so well.
3. A Surprise Guest
After getting engaged this couple hired a professional photographer to document the perfect moment. In the midst of this revelry, comedian Dave Chapelle photobombed the shoot and made things even more exciting.
Soon after, the picture went unsurprisingly viral on Reddit, getting some 90,000 upvotes in just a day.
4. The Fence Is Always There
We all love seeing stunning traveling pictures on social media, especially now traveling has become a dream lately. But this guy went a little bit too far. In a series of photos where he appears to be in different places around the world, it was the fence in his backyard that eventually gave it away.
People began noticing that the fence was somehow always there, calling him out on his lie.
5. A Rookie Photo Editing Mistake
When it comes to photo editing there are certain basic rules that should allow one to create the perfect edited picture. But as we’ve learned (and will continue learning), many people don’t necessarily do their research before posting a picture with “a touch” here and there.
So when this girl posted a cute photo of herself, the reflection on the window next to her revealed her real features.
6. A Visit From Free Willy
Seriously, what could make a picture even more exciting than a whale photobombing the photo? These two women decided to take a selfie while on a boat ride with their family when a huge guest decided to show its grace.
Suddenly, a whale jumped up the second the photo was snapped, resulting in this awesome memory now to be kept forever.
7. You Do What You Gotta Do For That Fame
So this person found out that girls in LA actually rent studios that look like private jets so that they can post “cool” and glamorous pictures of themselves.
When this person found out about the number of fake photos that are probably circulating online, they just lost it and had to post an entire rant about it.
8. The Best Photobomb On A Wedding Photo
Another photobomb that could have not been more welcome for a lovely couple. In the midst of their wedding photos, actor Jason Momoa decided to make an appearance out of nowhere, creating one of the most iconic wedding photos we’ve ever seen.
He came through with a trident and poked the couple as they burst out laughing.
9. The Angle Does It All
Again, folks, just refrain from believing everything you may see on social media. Angles are everything, especially if stars prefer to avoid the use of photoshop. Nowadays, pictures don’t necessarily have to be edited or photoshopped in order to be unrealistic.
All one needs is to find out what angles work better to create a completely untrue version of oneself.
10. Stop Fooling Us
We’re not going to lie, it’s really hard to understand the reason behind this decision to photoshop.
Randomly photoshopping a Ferrari logo onto the steering wheel of a car that she’s not even driving is just a little bit bizarre, but it happened!
11. The Editing Went A Bit Overboard
This photo had such great potential, and to be completely honest, the guy isn’t that difficult to look at in the first place, so why so much editing?
Instead of posting a natural picture of a "chill" moment, the guy decided to use the teeth brightening feature a little bit too much and ended up with the whitest and shiniest teeth on the internet.
12. Look At The Difference!
Things have gotten so out of control that some people are posting photos that make them look like completely different people.
YouTuber Ethan Klein began making videos that expose these Instagrammers and remind young people to stop believing everything they see on social media. He claims: “I can’t get over the difference! Don’t believe what you see on Instagram folks.”
13. If There Isn’t A Dog, Did You Even Hike?
Let’s be honest, if you went on a hike in a beautiful place and didn’t post a picture of yourself at the top on social media, did you even hike? To this person’s luck, her picture was additionally enhanced with a whole lot of cuteness when her dog decided she had to be in the picture too.
So, at the last second, the husky appeared and smiled for the camera.
14. The Perfect Bikini Shot
It’s not like the person in the photo is a completely different human being, but the angle she chose to use for the picture she posted distorts things a bit.
And well, there is absolutely nothing wrong with choosing to share the angles that enhance our best features. This just becomes a bit of a problem when that’s all we see online.
15. Next Time Erase The Filter Name
Filters have been the new craze for a while, and though they can be really fun, they also create very distorted realities. In fact, the craze around it has been so huge that people are now paying to get their faces looking more like their favorite filters.
Unfortunately, this girl forgot to erase the name of her filter when she tried to convince her followers that her eyes were turning from grey to green naturally. Looking up you can clearly see, "Colored Lenses by luxelenses."
16. Was That Really Necessary?
Another embarrassing photoshopped situation that just seems to be so unnecessary. This woman posted one of those “clean” and cute pictures of a breakfast in a robe type of morning, but it seems like her breakfast hadn’t arrived yet.
So instead, she took a picture of a breakfast plate and literally pasted it into her picture, creating this disaster we see here.
17. A Brilliant Idea
Again, the mental health consequences of unrealistic selfies of celebrities and influencers on social media are huge. While some people have begun taking it seriously, others have brushed away the very urgent need to do something about it.
This person shared that a proposed law in the UK hopes to make celebrities label and come forward when they post anything that has been edited.
18. What Happened To Her Hand?
People should definitely check their photoshopped pictures more often since a small flaw may bring the entire truth to the front.
After that, no matter how stunning the picture is, once one finds out it’s photoshopped that person’s credibility is gone.
19. The Cat Couldn’t Care Less
We all know how sneaky cats can be, and quite a few of them do as they please. Clearly, this cat is no exception. When this bride and groom were in the midst of their wedding pictures, their photo wasn’t photobombed by a famous star.
Instead, the cat decided that he needed to be a part of that picture in order to make their day - and that’s exactly what he did.
20. It’s A Fact, Cats Hate Weddings
Here goes another one of a cat that wasn’t going to let that photo be snapped without the grace of his face. But he didn’t just want to be a part of the photo.
He wanted to show his entire face so that the happy couple would always remember the day a cat decided to be a part of their wedding photos.
21. Not The Most Romantic Photo
Well, that’s definitely an interesting way of ruining a random couple’s photo. This couple decided to take a cute kissing photo by reaching out from each of their car windows, but they didn’t notice the two guys in the back.
Both guys chose to pee exactly when the couple kissed and the photo was snapped. Now they’re stuck with this lovely picture.
22. That Was A Bit Unnecessary
Now, this is something new. Apparently, this Instagrammer was caught photoshopping the exact same cloud into her pictures, and no one can really explain the reason why.
Two things are possible here. She either really loves that cloud formation and decided that it should accompany her in every traveling photo, or the locations are themselves are all photoshopped.
23. Not Even Nature Escapes
Yes, folks, not even nature is exempt from being shamefully photoshopped to look a little bit brighter. The two photos below show a picture of a blue and purple stunning lake next to how the lake actually looks like (which is stunning on its own).
A guy is sitting next to the lake in an untouched image, basically proving that whoever posted the picture on the left did some crazy editing.
24. There Are More Out There
You might not believe it but it’s actually extremely common for people to photoshop clouds into their pictures on Instagram.
Apparently, they give the photos a bit of a dreamy upgrade, resulting in tons of people resorting to stock photos and clouds every single day to be added to their Instagram posts. Now that is something we never thought we’d write about.
25. Drake Was Right There
On a regular evening, this guy went out for dinner with his family. In the middle of it, they thought it would be the perfect time to take a group photo, but little did they know that that would become one of their most memorable moments.
Only when they took a look at the photo later that evening, did they realize that Drake was chilling right next to them!
26. What Happened To Her Foot?
Some sort of very awkward editing happened in this picture, and once you see it, it’s impossible to unsee it. This woman’s foot is so incredibly small that it can’t possibly be natural, but it’s hard to understand how exactly that happened.
Was it on purpose? Was it the angle? Or was it just an honest mistake, which accidentally became the height of this cute photo?
27. The Look On That Waiters Face!
This is one of the most incredibly awkward sceneries that involve children. This waiter had quite the unfortunate moment as he was bringing food to his table!
The waiter was caught completely off guard the moment a child literally punched his crotch out of the blue, and it was all caught in this photo.
28. Well That’s Just Terrifying
Some people totally fail with their editing skills, and some people go to a level that is just hard to describe. This woman posted a picture of herself that couldn’t look less like her real face.
She overused photoshop so much that her face actually became unrecognizable to her family and friends, though she insisted that the whole thing was real.
29. Striking A Pose
The art of posing may come naturally to some, but it can be a real struggle to some people out there, this girl included.
When she was in the midst of trying to pose in the best way she could think of, a guy in the back couldn’t help but mimic her pose. She ended up with a hilarious picture that we hope she took well.
30. The Other Horse Looks Annoyed
There is always that one quirky friend that can’t see a photo being taken without making a funny face. According to this picture, that may happen with horses too and, just as expected, there is also the friend that doesn’t find it amusing at all.
No matter what though, this is easily one of the cutest horse photos we’ve ever seen.
31. Is This Really Her Mugshot?
Clearly, there are no limits to the pictures people chose to photoshop, that also includes a mugshot.
Someone had the brilliant idea of taking this mugshot and editing this woman’s everything, so it would become one of those viral mugshots. Whatever this person was trying to achieve, we’re not sure they’ve got their priorities right.
32. Keeping Things Real
Okay, first things first, she is gorgeous no matter what she puts in her face. But we have to say that in a world with so many people trying to pretend to be something they aren’t, it is really refreshing to see someone being so real.
To break the norm, this girl decided to put a photo of herself without any make-up and photoshop it next to one with the entire face production.
33. It Couldn’t Be Further From Reality
Though we are laughing about the different ways in which many of these photos are a complete fail, it’s hard to ignore how dangerous it has become to scroll through social media.
Though some accounts are definitely authentic, others couldn’t be further from reality (in a really unhealthy way). May this serve as a wake-up call for all of us to not take everything we see on social media as a given.
34. It’s All About The Pose
Not everyone tries to lie about who they truly are on social media though. In fact, more and more influencers have made sure to keep things as real as possible, as they’ve been more aware than ever of the dangers of creating unrealistic accounts.
For this person, it was all about the angle, the makeup, and well, a tiny bit of photoshop.
35. "Magazines Are Just An illusion”
Instagrammers aren't the only ones distorting their pictures online to make people believe that they're closer to “perfection” than anyone else. Celebrities do it too on a daily basis, and many rarely admit it.
And while they sometimes do it themselves, many times some of the decisions are actually made by their managers and producers, who make sure to always hide whatever “imperfection” they may have on their bodies or faces.
36. Skin Is Not Perfect
Have you ever wondered how celebs never have acne? Well, apparently, it’s because they actually do but either hide it really well or go through some pretty harsh procedures to make sure it never shows.
Nevertheless, there are many disadvantages that may come with keeping one’s image so clean and flawless all the time. In fact, it must be exhausting.
37. Instagram Vs Reality
Well, folks, there are actually people who have made it their purpose to create “Instagram vs reality” videos and posts just so people get a good dose of reality on a daily basis.
Depending on who we choose to follow on social media, it is becoming increasingly common for people to not completely mask their lives. In fact, it might have even become a trend to keep things real.
38. You’d Expect The Photoshop Skills To Be Better
No matter what level of fame celebrities may reach, deep inside, they are still just humans just like every single one of us.
And even though celebrities like Khloe Kardashian have tried to create brands to be more inclusive and break down barriers in Hollywood, even they give in to the photoshop rabbit hole. One would expect that the work would be done a bit better though.
39. That’s Way Too Much
Some pictures are photoshopped to a level that may actually start giving others trust issues. How are we supposed to know what is real and what isn’t anymore?
Sure, there are sometimes a number of identifiable signs such as makeup, angles, and poses, but some people have mastered the art of deceiving others so well that it’s becoming increasingly hard to know what is what.
40. “Am I Not The Cutest?”
Something about llamas is just too cute for this earth. Their perfectly disproportionate faces make it seem like they’re constantly smiling, warming any cold heart out there.
So when this llama decided to stick herself into a picture of a view of Machu Picchu from above, the lucky photographer was in complete awe. Now, they will always have a photo of a llama posing perfectly above Machu Picchu.
41. And We’re Back To Khloe Kardashian
For those who have been watching the Kardashians for a while, or have at least “kept up” with the family through social media, Khloe Kardashian’s transformation was one of those expected situations that came out of nowhere.
Though the reality star has tried to keep things real here and there, we continue to learn that even she is not exempt from the wonders of photoshop.
42. The Queen Of Social Media
It’s not a secret that Kylie Jenner is probably one of the Kardashian/Jenner sisters with the most work done on her body. The social media pro has come under fire several times for procedures she has done, but never as much as that one time that she decided to get lip fillers.
According to this picture though, something about the fillers just doesn’t seem right.
43. Coachella, The Instagram Farm
Something about this picture is so heartbreaking. Probably every single one of us has heard about Coachella. That huge music and arts festival that counts with the presence of some of the most known Instagram and Hollywood stars.
But as this picture clearly shows us something: not many people actually enjoy the thrill of the moment, since much of their time is spent getting content.
44. Instagrammers Are Ruining California’s Spring
Instagrammers will go to great lengths to get the perfect shot, no matter how unreal it may be. In fact, they might even get to the point of running nature itself just so that they get the typically colorful California spring photo.
When someone started posting photos of this specific spot during California’s super bloom, others followed along and ended up killing hundreds of plants.
45. Kylie Jenner On The Same Day
Before Kylie Jenner began getting all of her cosmetic “enhancements,” she already loved to play with makeup and with her angles on social media.
For example, the picture on the left was taken on the same day as the picture on the right-hand side, but it actually looks like we’re looking at two different people. There must have been a lot of photoshop happening here.
46. Bye Bye Eyebrow
Oh, that’s just awkward. This girl tried really hard to post a beautiful photoshopped picture of herself, but she forgot to double-check if it all fell into the right place.
She was petrified when she realized that the picture she posted showed her eyebrow glitching through her hat, basically signaling that very few things about that picture were actually real.
47. More Than A Few Distortions
Here we go again with a photoshop rookie mistake. As we've mentioned, there are a few things one should check when posting a picture that is photoshopped.
While most people won’t notice it if the picture is slightly edited, it is almost impossible to unsee that many angles that just don’t match. Take the Colosseum and the fence in the back there for example, how can it all be so distorted?
48. Melania Trump’s Portrait
It’s not surprising that the First Lady would want to have her White House portrait come out perfectly, especially after years of building up an impeccable appearance.
But even Melania Trump is human and is prone to having some fine lines here and there. While her portrait clearly hid it very well, another angle of the photo showed every single unwanted line in her smile.
49. Leg Day Has To Improve
How many jokes have we heard about ripped people who simply forget (or refuse ) to give the same attention they give to the rest of their body to their legs too?
Well, it seems like this person either loves that body shape, or she went a little overboard with the photoshopping situation. She might have needed to let her calves be a little bit bigger to look more natural.
50. And We’re Back To Khloe...Again
There are so many things that are unsettling about this picture. The side-to-side pictures are so different that once again, it’s hard to even believe that people are able to distort their images this much.
While we are aware that celebrity pictures are almost never left untouched, this level of photoshop is just an entirely different one. Still though, we do somehow still appreciate Khloe’s attempt to keeping things real every once in a while.
