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.

This is a nice one. Artificial, yes, but surely with the intention of creating a dream-world.

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.

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

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.

A bit too much facial editing with this one. Her nose is all FUBAR in the shopped version.

Saturation is ok, but the final one looks oversaturated in some parts, like the lollipop

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.

Hate the HDR-like glow around the building--a dead giveaway that the sky is artifical, but good otherwise.

This one's good, though I'm not sure I agree with the decision to remove a bunch of the branches and the tree in the back right.

The tone and ambient light definitely needs to be adjusted on the woman to make this look believable.

The second one is really cool - but what is that thing on her head? The bird doesn't look very real either. Still awesome. I love her freckles.

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.
