Adobe Photoshop was released 26 years ago, and since then you cannot trust anything you see. What may look like a simple amateur picture at first, could look like a stunning portrait after a photoshopper has done its magic.

Below, Bored Panda has put together a list of photos that prove the power of photoshop. The results are mind-blowing. Take a look and vote for your favorites.

I love this! Clever editing. I was about to say that only the background and atmosphere changed, but also baby's hoodie has been made longer. I guess high waist pants were out of fashion? Lol.

Super nice! You can see how everything was planned beforehand and photoshopped parts really have a base in the original. I prefer this to pictures where the edited version doesn't look like the original at all.

This one, I like. Everything in the picture stayed the same (as far as the objects and the model. Lighting was just retouched. Her body wasn't enhanced. She even has some lines on her face that weren't erased. To me, this is true retouching.

I understand the adjusting of the aesthetic to fall, and making it more artistic, but they should have left the hair instead of trying to make it fuller, and why remove that little rag or ribbon or whatever on his overalls? The new additional pocket looks super fake, and the rag/ribbon thing gave it visual interest.

Odd that they made most of the greens more vibrant, but then changed the greenish brown water (a normal color), to a nastier-looking brown.

Oh hey, actual correct-ish lighting from above, rather than just glow FX. I know the rays are fake, but the lighting is otherwise positioned correctly for a change.

He forged on, thinking about the words he'd heard that night. "One does not simply walk into Mordor." Well, he'd done it anyway, and he was nearly there. It was only afterward that he realized he'd brought his Rubik's cube and left the Ring back in Rivendell. Dammit. He'd have to go back and start over.
