Ever since photo editing programs and software have been developed, the limits to notching up your photographs are virtually nonexistent. Photoshop however, was the beginning of an era in photography and photo manipulation among the masses and still is the greatest photo editing software our age has ever known.
We’ve all come across those fabulously edited images, wild photo manipulations and glamorous face shots in magazines, tabloids, on billboards, on TV, posters, album covers, packages, you name it. Photoshop has become a stagnant part of our lives and we don’t even realize it, it’s lingering as prominently comparable to commercialism – some would say the two are one in the same thing.
Photoshop is a primary tool used in the world of commercialism and marketing. Noting speaks perfection like a subject viewed through the eyes of Photoshop. Photoshop carries godly power and ability to manipulate almost any given image to your liking provided the skill is present. Brands and companies rely heavily on Photoshop when it comes to presenting their product or service as the ideal choice or way of life, and this we witness in each passing moment.
There’s a pretty good chance you have all stumbled upon those popular ‘celeb before and after shots’ links and spam while browsing the internet, accurately revealing the heaps of photoshopping celebrities undergo before their photos are released for public viewing (quite the celebrity gossip boost no doubt). On the other hand, what we often tend to miss are the unbelievable Photoshop disasters that occur in the attempts to alter the original and true image. Sometime people just don’t know when to quit. Too much Photoshop will result in the awkward, bizarre and sometimes hilarious representation of images that should have just never been tampered with. Most of the time, these big Photoshop blunders are made at the hands of major ad agencies, brands and companies, which just makes this need for photo manipulation in the real world all the more ridiculous.
Have a look at some of the images we have collected for you that cry out disastrous and reckless Photoshopping. Enjoy.
