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!

Why is " tired" synonymous with "old"? She has two children and performs nightly in Las Vegas. The original is an exhausted look not "old"

I'm actually somewhat reassured that these celebrities look "normal" and that it's not just the non-celebrities skin that has flaws, with or without make-up.

I have a feeling both of these images might have been photoshopped, just to make a point. She didn't look that rough last time I saw her on tv.

Margie Ring

All celebrities have hair extensions added for special occasions and photo shoots. So what? That's the business they're in. It's competitive and for a singer/dancer and celebrity who is followed by the paparazzi just waiting for a bad picture you should give the girl a break!

I saw pictures of her without make up where she didn't look that trashy ! I think the make up they used made it really harsh... Look at her cheeks on the photoshoped picture, to come to that you see that they used a LOT of make up, giving her this rough aspect I guess...

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 :)
