With the creation of Photoshop in 1987, our lives suddenly changed - you could turn virtually any "ugly duckling" into a beautiful swan. When used with caution and in modesty, Photoshop can be a useful tool for enhancing our natural beauty and giving a self-esteem boost.

We often see photos of celebrities that look so flawless, it's hard to believe they're even real. Before you start comparing yourselves to them, keep in mind that their photos are usually the case of being photoshopped excessively. So don't worry, nobody looks like photoshop pictures in real life.

Celebrity photoshop takes it to another dimension by also setting unrealistic beauty standards to their young followers. Though sometimes, with a touch from an inexperienced editor, it can turn into an example of bad photoshop quite easily.

Below, Bored Panda had put together a list of celebrity photoshop fails and pics before and after the modifications - some of them were very scandalous, while others were simply photoshopped by people on the Internet. Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian - they're all there. Prepare to be shocked!

I wish I could try to understand the people who edit in this way. Whats their idea of beautiful? Who is telling them what is beautiful? Modeling is an art, what makes art beautiful, and everything else in the world beautiful — is authenticity. Will they ever understand that...

So... why are people demonized when they look petite and slender? Why is that being plus size is politically acceptable, whereas being petite and slender is about enabling unrealistic beauty standards. The human race has massive variance in terms of body type, one can look naturally slim and slender.

Who's the idiot who thought taking her natural pinkish skin tone and turning it green, even her swimming suit, should be in another business! And I think it's odd that someone with such a thin sculptured face arms and upper body would have a completely different body type from the breasts down. It's almost as if this was photoshopped twice. She's a beautiful girl, but with a different pose and a different suit she wouldn't need to be photoshopped at all.

No Cesi, the problem (one of them anyway) is people like you deciding what a person should or shouldn't wear.

Margie Ring
Community Member
4 years ago

Cesi was merely pointing out the obvious. This IS a suit made for showing off the side and waist of a woman. And it's not flattering on this particular model. A different suit and a photographer who knows how to pose a woman correctly ( this pose was very awkward) would have made her look like the beautiful woman she is instead of emphasizing what most women would not want to be emphasized.

It's completely messed up because she is a PLUS SIZE MODEL! She is literally supposed to be part of the solution to unrealistic body expectations! She is part of the self love/body positive movement (which lots of girls look to for examples of personal acceptance) and she is photoshopped down by half. It's the very definition of an oxymoron- 'its beautiful to be who you Are at Any size [just not with rolls, creases, love handles, dimples, or any unevenly distributed weight areas]! It's almost less attainable than normal, twig Bitch, starve yourself models.

Margie Ring
Community Member

She wasn't made to look skinny. Someone decided to do a very poor job of photoshopping this model. The green tones are horrible. And the only thing taken away was the rolls of fat and the protruding belly. They should have put her in a more flattering suit for her body type and gotten rid of the pose that was equally unattractive. And used her natural coloring! A big part of using plus sized models is to show them how to dress for their body type, not to squeeze them into a suit made for a skinny girl. A big girl can look sexy and beautiful wearing clothes designed for her and the industry needs to catch up and provide attire for woman that don't wear a size 2!
