15 Embarrassing Photoshop Fails People Will Never Live Down

You can't trust everything that you see. These days, photographers have countless tools at their disposal that they use to color the truth and blur the lines.

Undoubtedly, the most popular and prominent is photoshop. But even the most skilled users can falter at times. Have a look and check out these 15 embarrassing photoshop fails that people will never live down.

Don't let it go to your head.

Did you ever happen to see that old movie Mars Attacks? Whoever took this photo has made this poor woman look like a giant alien! Her head is twice the size it should be.

Those peas look incredibly unappetizing.

This is the kind of thing you expect to see at bad tourist trap restaurants. The peas make the dish look even more unappetizing than it already does — as if that were even possible.

That's one way to play the guitar.

What on earth is happening here? Would it have been so hard to have the models in the photos actually holding a guitar, as opposed to miming the motion and photoshopping it in later?

It's like you're not even trying anymore, Amazon.

All I can say is that the original family in the photograph must have been incredibly ugly. How else could you justify putting up such a slapped-together photo; the faces aren't even in the proper place!

Stay calm ma'am — your plane has just crashed into the Hudson river.

in case you've never been to New York City, allow me to explain. The only way you'd ever be able to see the Statue of Liberty this close up from a plane window would be if it crashed into the river immediately after takeoff.

This looks totally natural.

It's literally an ad for a store credit card, yet they still somehow managed to forget to include an image of the model actually holding the piece of plastic? That's a real smooth move there, guys.

I'm pretty sure that something's missing here...

This one actually took me a while to figure out. Once I realized what was missing I was embarrassed it took me so long. Pay close attention to the bottom half of the man and woman in the photo — they're missing their legs!

That's a seriously giant straw.

Not only that but the editors have done a truly terrible job making this photoshop appear natural. Anyone can see that the straw isn't actually in her mouth at all; it's just been precariously placed.

You're doing it wrong.

The guy on the far right isn't even in the frame of the camera — so how on earth is he appearing in the selfie image on the screen? Also, it's facing the totally wrong direction.

The human neck shouldn't ben that way.

Oh my god just looking at this photo makes me want to book an appointment with my chiropractor. The tilt of this woman's head is so unnatural that it borders on being disturbing.

I think she sold low.

If you're a real estate agent and you're trying to come up with ways to entice buyers and drum up new business — maybe you should be posing with more than $9 worth of singles in your picture. It's just a thought.

Can you spot the mistake?

Onc again, this one doesn't immediately jump out at you. Do you give up? OK — I'll tell you! Look at the reflection in the pool, notice the umbrellas? OK good...so if they're in the water, why aren't they on the pool deck?

Somebody call a doctor!

Dear lord this poor girl's arm looks as if it's been broken in at least three different places! Who in their right mind would ever want to purchase a swim membership from a place like this?

But how does it go to the bathroom?

This adorable little Pug is missing a pretty important piece of his anatomy — his butthole! I get that it's not the most flattering angle, but as the classic children's story says — "Everybody poops."

What in the horror movie hell is happening here?

The picture of the little girl on its own would have been creepy enough, but can someone please explain what's going on with the reflection? Is she supposed to be possessed by the devil or what's happening here?

"My local fitness studio made this."

This woman clearly has achieved some kind of incredible mastery over her bones, muscles, and tissue to be able to turn her head like that.

I'm astounded and in awe all at once.

"Nothing to see here."

I will say: if you're scrolling very very quickly without paying attention, this is one that seems like it can go under people's radar.

Until they stop to look, that is.

List Item #18

Ah, we've all been there. That awkward part of getting older where we have to paint a shirt onto our bodies because simply nothing else will fit us.

"Morphing legs?!"

If your eyes hurt when looking at this one, know you're not alone.

I don't know who okayed this particular picture, but I'm sure it's not the first time they see it online.

List Item #20

Again, this is one, if you're scrolling pretty quickly, you might not even notice it.

But as you can see since you're here with me, it's clearly photoshopped.

"Love this song, but the guy to the right has a concerning ankle."

It definitely looks like that scene in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets where he gets all the bones in his wrist removed.

Is that what happened here?

"Why is his hand so big?"

Listen, I understand depth and perception and all that, but no matter how far away this guy is, his hand can't be that big.

Unless he has one long arm.

"That’s not how that works."

That is one badly positioned mask.

But hey, if people are still buying the product, they clearly don't care about how well they can photoshop!

"Omg.... faks tattoos and abs-"

Unfortunately, you can very much see where photoshop begins and ends in this photo.

Love yourself, people! Don't photoshop your body!

Just a casual stroll.


VERY CLEARLY, this is photoshopped, and beyond just the dress. Those arms and legs don't even look like they belong to that head!

Warped mirror frames.

It's subtle, and definitely falls into the whole "blink and you miss it" ones, but you can see the shift in the mirror frame on the right-hand side.

"Cute picture but why did you have to facetune your man’s face too 🤦🏻‍♀️ No pores found between the two of them in this pic."

I don't know what this person is talking about: with or without any photoshop, they clearly look like a stunning couple.

So regardless, they have it working for them.

"Ribs and internal organs are totally superfluous."

We really need to be kinder to ourselves when it comes to acknowledging the fact that we have a ribcage.

Otherwise, what's the point of any of it?

In the air tonight

I can't not hear Phil Collins in this picture, don't ask me why, because I'll never have an answer to satisfy you.

But yeah, I mean...you can literally see the sunset through her pants.


I have no words for this one.

Except to point out that she looks like a cartoon next to a very real human being. But besides that, totally normal photo.

When the head doesn't match the body.

Not even a little bit, not even at all.
