While we refer to poor Photoshop job as “Photoshop fail,” it never fails to make us chuckle. Recently, a subject of a major Photoshop fail was Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison. In his official portrait, he was given a pair of shiny new sneakers – but they were both left.
Swedish-born Instagram star Johanna Emma Olsson recently posted photos from her glamorous trip to Paris, posing in front of some iconic locations. But it didn’t take long for her followers to figure out that something is fishy. At a closer look, it’s easy to see that the photos are fake. So, the Instagrammer got bashed by her fans and of course, the whole case got viral.
We’ve seen plenty of Photoshop fails in promotional posters or magazines (and this is my absolute favorite). The latest fail has been spotted in promotional pictures for The Apprentice, where fans noticed that some contestants look like they have three hands. Of course, people were quick to joke about it on social media. But BBC claims that it’s not a Photoshop fail, but that a “lightning illusion” is to blame.
Vanity Fair has recently published their annual Hollywood issue. The photo taken by Annie Leibovitz features some amazing stars, such as Robert De Niro, Tom Hanks, and Harrison Ford. However, the photo caused reactions on Twitter not because of the superstars – but because of their “extra limbs.” Thanks to Photoshop fail and unfortunate position of the dress, Reese Witherspoon got an extra leg, and Oprah Winfrey got an additional hand.
Celebrities, especially sports celebrities, seem to be fairly common targets for badly done Photoshop, but rarely has one responded quite like Brandon Jennings.
While the former Milwaukee & Detroit point guard was a free agent, fan “Alex L” suggested he sign with the Sacramento Kings using one of the worst Photoshop jobs in sports history to illustrate his point.
British Diver and Olympic Bronze Medalist Tom Daley ran a brief competition on his Twitter feed recently. The brief was simple. Modify a photograph with the winner being chosen to become the new banner for his Twitter profile.
With 2.6 million followers, Tom had no shortage of entries, and the competition was soon hijacked by Photoshop pranksters, as was inevitable.
