It's becoming increasingly difficult to know just what is real and what isn't when browsing the internet. We're not just talking about fake news either, but the millions of photoshopped images, often very far from reality.

Take a look at these incredible before and after photo manipulation examples to see what we mean. They were Photoshopped by a Weibo user who goes by the name of Kanahoooo, although Chinese social media prefers to call her "Photoshop Holy." Why? Because her photo editing skills are nothing short of Godlike, which is why she has over 430,000 followers. Whether she's altering guys or girls to match the beauty standards, or even turning guys into girls, there seems to be nothing that the skilled image editor can't do. Kanahoooo, whose day job, according to MSN, is to make people look "shiny" and live up to their high expectations, apparently provides Photoshopping services to people who want to look better on their online profiles. "Don't believe the perfect thing you see online!" she says. "If you want to find out about somebody, then see them in real life." Check out some of her best images below, and let them act as a cautionary reminder that, when it comes to the internet, there's a very thin line between fact, fiction, and the ugly truth.

Yep, I don't even see the point here anymore - could have just created a whole digitized person to begin with.

Lisa, you're absolutely right. Double eyelid surgery is super common in Asian countries.

I don't get this at all. You are what you are. If I take a photo and I don't like it, I just try to get the best photo of MYSELF I can...not a photo of an entirely different person. I refuse to blur out wrinkles or anything in my own photos. I just want the best photo of myself I can get but I sure as heck don't want a photo of an entirely different person. This is just false advertising. What are these people posting these photos on? If it's a dating site I'd be pissed off. If it's a family photo I wouldn't even recognize them as a family member. It's ridiculous. They're not even photos of them. There's no point to this at all.

I wonder if all these people know their "before" pics are now on the internet to be dissected and commented on.

I personally think that she looked way better in the first one. She doesn't even look like the same person after editing!

He does not need to be photo-shopped. He already look good on the first picture.

They photoshopped out the features that made her herself!! She's adorable before and after, but the original one has more natural beauty...

Who would guess when seeing the lower photo that it would even show the person from the upper photo?

Does anyone else think the re-done faces are the same? Very little differences once you make the eyes more Western, narrow the nose and face, and accentuate the pointed chin. They all end up looking the same.

Are they asking to be given egg heads? Because that is exactly what all these pictures have in common.... a flawless egg head.

She looks like a sweet young girl on the first pic. On the second pic, I keep thinking I'm seeing the same girl in pic after pic.
