16 Photoshop Fails That Definitively Prove We Should Just Stop Already

Diply 13 Nov 2020

I am so over Photoshop. Like, what is even the point anymore? It's not fooling anyone.

TBH, I've spent enough time feeling bad about myself because I'm constantly bombarded by overly photoshopped images, and I bet you have, too.

So let's roast a bunch of poorly photoshopped images. We deserve it.

1. Kris Jenner's arm photoshop in this Instagram post. 

Twitter | @bandsbands27

Obviously, Kris Jenner is stunning and always look great in her posts, which is probably why a lot of people were scratching their heads over this photo.

Kris' skin has definitely been smoothed, and the curved gym equipment behind her is a dead giveaway.

2. Emily Ratajkowski's disappearing necklace.

Um, unless I'm seriously behind on my jewelry game, necklaces don't typically disappear in the middle of your chest.

Ratajkowski called out the magazine for photoshopping her lips and body on Instagram and encouraged them to celebrate individuality.

3. I am screaming because that woman clearly has two right hands. 

Reddit | moofthestoof

An eagle-eyed Reddit-user spotted this photoshop fail while scrolling through Netflix and I'm impressed! I definitely wouldn't have noticed, but now, it can't be unseen.

I mean, maybe that's her secret to making such great sandwiches?

4. What's up with Gigi Hadid's insanely long arm on this magazine cover? 

Twitter | @kimpcole

We're pretty confident that's not what Gigi looks like.

This photo must be Gigi's audition to star in the live-action version of The Incredibles because that arm has reached Elastigirl levels of stretch.

5. And speaking of stretched limbs, let's talk about Tye Sheridan's leg in the poster for Ready Player One.

Twitter | @paultoesjohn

Because it's obviously way too long.

Well, unless you believe this Twitter user who claims that Tye's leg is exactly as long as it should be.

6. This magazine that got personally dragged by Lupita Nyong'o for photoshopping her hair. 

Instagram | @lupitanyongo

Can we please stop doing this to black actresses? It's annoying and wrong.

"I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like," wrote Nyong'o.

7. Apparently all photoshop artists have a seriously problem dealing with Gigi Hadid's arms. 

Seventeen | Seventeen

Oh. My. God.

How did this terrifying image ever make its way into a magazine?! She looks like Harry Potter when Gilderoy Lockhart accidentally removed all of his arm bones.

8. And then, in the same photo shoot, both Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner lost their knees, for some reason.

Seventeen | Seventeen

Seriously, what is up with this photo shoot? I mean, this had to have been intentional right?

They literally look like barbies that have been brought to life (but only halfway).

9. Henry Cavill's CGI face in Justice League.

Twitter | @DanaSchwartzzz

This disaster belongs in the photoshop fail hall of fame because it is a classic.

Anyone who tells you it's not as bad as everyone says is lying. It's super distracting.

10. According to Maxim, Priyanka Chopra does not have armpits. 

Us Weekly | Us Weekly

Just look at this very natural and normal image of Priyanka Chopra's plastic armpits.

The world has clearly gone overboard with this photoshopping thing if not even our armpits are safe.

11. You'd think the photoshop people at Vanity Fair would know what they were doing, but nope. 

Twitter | @mrdiscopop

Well, unless Reese Witherspoon actually has three legs.

I think I would have noticed if Reese had an extra limb by 900th time I watched Legally Blonde.

Load Comments

12. It's only fair that if Reese Witherspoon gets to have three legs, Oprah gets to have three hands. 

Twitter | @MintRoyale

That makes sense, right?

I guess this finally explains how Oprah manages to be so freakin' productive all the time.

13. Remember when Coach decided they wanted Selena Gomez to look more like a creepy cartoon character than herself?

Instagram | @coach

This one is super eerie because it's hard to identify what the biggest problem is. I had to do a double-take just to make sure it was actually Selena.

14. This John Mayer selfie has got to be a joke. 

Instagram | @johnmayer

I can only assume that John Mayer is mocking Photoshop with this ridiculous image. I mean, it certainly wouldn’t be the first time he had us laughing.

15. This woman is clutch when you need something off the top shelf.

Instagram | @he.lew

It’s seriously possible that the person who did the photoshopping on this image has never encountered a human woman. This is legitimately terrifying, and that kid should start running.

16. With legs like those, it’s no wonder she became a model.   

Instagram | @gigi.fighter

I mean, what else could she possible be?

However, last time I checked, most people's thighs aren’t the longest part of their body.

17. This unsuspecting family that fell victim to the greatest photoshop fail of all time.  

Mashable | Mashable

At least they had a sense of humor about it! These pictures genuinely look like something out of a horror movie.

18. Someone call a doctor because Khloé Kardashian is missing a chunk out of her right hip.  

Instagram | @khloekardashian

Either this selfie has been photoshopped or those leggings are cutting her to the bone. It gets worse the longer I look at it.

19. This pic of Miranda Kerr showing off her dress in what appears to be a fun-house hallway.  

Instagram | @mirandakerr

Miranda Kerr is stunning, and she looks amazing here, but there’s no way the curve on those walls is natural.

Load Comments

20. This Selena Gomez selfie that is just a little bit off. 

Twitter | @hungvanngo

Twitter is deadly good at spotting photoshopping, and this time was no different.

The wall on the left side of the image is definitely a little wonky.

21. When Kris Jenner was a little too liberal with her Face Tune app.

Instagram | @krisjenner

Girl, we all know that Gordon Ramsay's face is a lot more rugged than that!

It didn’t help that Ramsay posted the unedited photo to his own account.

22. Chrissy Teigen hilariously roasted GQ for awkwardly photoshopping her breasts on their cover. 

Twitter | @chrissyteigen

Chrissy Teigen is a national treasure, and I'm almost okay with this photoshop fail because of how funny her reaction was.

Never change, Chrissy.

23. Alicia Vikander's freakishly long neck on the poster for Tomb Raider definitely got people laughing.

Twitter | @tombraider

How did this poster make it to print? Did anyone actually look at it first?

Also, why are all women are always posed exactly like this on movie posters? We get it. Women have faces and butts. Let's try a new pose.

24. Khloe Kardashian's bountiful fingers.

Instagram | @khloekardashian

Somehow, KoKo ended up with seven fingers on each hand in this shot. More unrealistic standards for women!

Load Comments

25. My, what a big hand you have.

Instagram | @arianagrande

I can't imagine what Ariana Grande feels she needs to photoshop herself for, but whatever it was left her with an unusually large hand. Looks like someone might've tried to make her look taller?

Load Comments

26. I'm glad Zendaya called out this horrific photoshop fail.

Instagram | @zendaya

If magazines are actually going to be this terrible at photoshopping, I think we can all agree it's time to stop.

No one actually needs to be photoshopped. Let's just let people be their beautiful selves.

27. Apparently they were not all about that bass.

When the music video for Meghan Trainor's song Me Too came out, she noticed that they edited her waist to make her look slimmer. She demanded the video be taken down and the unedited shots be used instead.

28. Ariana's doll hands.

Instagram | @arianagrande

It looks like Ari can't decide what she wants her hands to look like. In this now-famous pic of her tattoo accidentally proclaiming her love for tiny BBQ grills, the skin on her hand has been smoothed out so much she looks plastic.

29. This door frame was constructed very poorly.

When Lindsay Lohan uploaded this photo, it looked like she might've possibly edited her figure to look a little more well rounded. When fans pointed out the warping door frame, she deleted the picture, but the damage was done.
