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.

Enjoyed this article? Check out these pics that show photography is the biggest lie ever.

Why leave the bag in the first place? And did anyone notice that even the bust size seems to increase for fairytale mode? o_O

The lass is beautiful in both, but quite frankly the second one looks like a straight-up painting. A flat one - no shade on the face. Like a cardboard cut-out that could just tip over.

They could've just brightened it up a bit, left the flower, and it would've been perfect. No need for all that fake makeup.

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.

The enlarged blossoms were done very poorly--with the bulge tool in PS that just makes everything look fake and blurred when nothing else on that visual plane is blurry. Rather than cutting out the flower and blowing the whole thing up to look larger, they chose to go the route that takes way less time, but looks bad.

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.
