This is a list of the best fashion magazine Photoshop fails. These epic photo disasters found on various web sites will make you look twice. At first glance, these pictures seem normal until you start to notice phantom limbs, disappearing body parts, and other unfortunate Photoshopping mistakes. Made possible by using retouching tools that are supposed to enhance the appearance of famous celebrities, supermodels, and even animals, the following images in the gallery below are hilarious, awkward, and even creepy.
Some of the most popular women’s magazines sold everywhere often feature a famous person on the cover, from Hollywood stars to sexy models, attempting to sell the idea of beauty and luxury. Editors and designers of these fashion mags and advertisements want their readers to buy into some unattainable form of perfection and in order to do that, they use digital imaging techniques to make the celebs and models appear to be thinner, curvier, taller, and more appealing. Changes are made to the appearance, from trimming waistlines, to changing eyes and skin color, enhancing breast sizes, or simply making the cover image fit within the page. In some cases, backgrounds and props are changed or removed, but traces of the original image are mistakenly left behind, giving the illusion of hands appearing out of nowhere or an extra set of fingers.
