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.

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

but he is so cute in the original pic. the problem with photoshopping is it deletes character. no matter how great the photoshop artist is, the soul of a pic is the person's realness. in here, the after pictures all look the same somehow. so not real.

For the photoshopped pic, she used Chinese actor Edison Chen's face. Just look him up on google or take a look at this pic: 10326-5943...479b94.jpg 10326-5943744479b94.jpg

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.
