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!

The only problem is that the first image is already photoshopped. Do you beleive she would begin a photoshoot with such a shitty make-up (foundation, random black dots) on her face?

That's what I was thinking when I saw it. Her make up looks messed up, if they had a decent make up artist, they wouldn't have need to retouch (and over do it).

There's no problem with the first picture, but as a stage performer/dancer she should know how important is to hold in your belly. (Yep, there are exceptional dance stíles like belly dance...) This posture reminds me of a toddler :)
