When it comes to photo editing, the biggest mistake artists do is making everything perfectly right. However, if you are really serious about getting famous with your warped images, you should definitely be more reckless with Photoshop. If you lack imagination about what to do or you’re just a Photoshop amateur, don’t worry – I’ll help you.

A good way to start is by accidentally removing someone’s feet whilst photo retouching. Ah, it’s so great creating more unrealistic beauty standards for women. If you have a close-up shot with only hands visible – don’t worry – it’s also a perfect opportunity! Just add the sixth finger, and wait for someone to spot your bad photoshop.

However, the best result is guaranteed when you are responsible for making a cover photo for a popular magazine or newspaper. You should be more careful though, and make the celebrity photoshop fail very subtle and unnoticeable for the editors. They don’t like these photoshop fakes so much. Once you get your weird photos through them, the mistake should be noticed pretty quickly if the magazine/newspaper is popular enough. Otherwise, if nothing happens – send some anonymous letters to guys like photoshopdisasters.blogspot.com.

OK, now let’s jump to the funny Photoshop fails, and learn from the best.
