Celeb Images: Photoshop To The Rescue!
It's hard to look picture perfect all the time. For celebrities it is almost a must for them to always look there best or risk being ridiculed by the media. So on some cases it is best that celebrities photoshop their pictures to hide any flaws that might have been present during this moment. The bad news comes when people get a hold of the real picture and are able to compare. Here are some examples of those pictures.
Kim Kardashian is arguably one of the most beautiful women alive. Her multimillion dollar empire has catapulted her into fame. A lot of people accused her of Photoshop in personal photos. This picture is clearly filtered.
It’s easy to understand that certain angles make people look thinner. Here Kim is standing in a mirror. On the left hand she’s pictured during the day. When people are photographed standing straight up or from an extremely flattering angle it can make them look thinner. It’s obvious that Photoshop accusations are false here.
Again, the angle is definitely different in these two photos. Though it’s the same outfit being photographed, Kim looks completely different. On the left she appears to be a little plumper than on the right. People can be a little harsh. In each photo she looks stunning!
This photo set looks a little crazy. Same outfit, same day probably but drastically different figures. Kim looks extremely svelte in the picture on the right. On the left she’s a bit fuller in the midsection. Is this an angular thing or is it Photoshop?
This photo of Kim and Blac China happened way before the drama. Chyna’s recent engagement and pregnancy with Kim’s brother Rob has stirred up a lot of controversy. This photo and the curved wall is definitely the least of their problems. People went nuts over this bit of Instagram Photoshop.
So the odd part of this photo isn’t Kim looking thinner. What happened to her arm? This actually might be an optical illusion. The star could be tucking her arm behind her back, but this could also have been a careless Photoshop disaster.
Kim looks great in both photos. Her famous curves are definitely back after having son Saint. On the left, it’s easy to call out the shiny photoshopped version of the most famous Kardashian sister. It’s a promotional photo of some kind, and most magazine images have the same sheen to them.
Now this is just ridiculous. When you angle your head upward all of the skin or fat under your chin disappears. Seriously, just do it yourself. Pull up your head and look to the sky. No fat at all. People are looking at her photoshopped hair too. Probably not a thing.
This is another case of the angular photo. When people are taking pictures of themselves hey have the luxury of positioning themselves in flattering ways. Standing straight up or popping out a hip can make you look thinner Here, Kardashian is caught off guard and photographed from a different angle.
Photoshopping yourself has to take some time and energy. Here’s an unprofessional image where there is a bit of gradient on the left leg of this star. Most photoshop experts take hours to perfect their work. It’s not for everyone.
Most women look drastically different with makeup on. As techniques advance and products get better it can be hard to tell the difference between no makeup and makeup. Kylie Jenner has changed the face of beauty with her large lips and smoky eyes. Here, the pictures look different because she’s wearing makeup.
Selfies can do wonders for our confidence. We have the ability to use light and angles to achieve the most flattering photos. Here’s a paparazzi shot on the left making it easy to understand that photoshop couldn’t have been used. On the right, Jenner took a selfie. It’s filtered. Not a big deal at all. And there’s not really even a big difference.
Now, these two photos of Kylie appear to be tampered with. There is an unnatural glow in her face and eyes in particular in the right-hand photo. Of course, she’s changed a lot in the past few years. Cosmetic surgery has been the culprit along with some photoshopping. This photo was definitely altered technically.
People were accusing Khloe Kardashian of photoshopping this photo. It’s no secret that the star has been working on her fitness. Her focus on health and making herself happy has been an inspiration to anyone who has struggled with her weight. Her incredible figure isn’t photoshopped. It’s all real, and this photo was later debunked with tech to prove it hadn’t been altered.
Cindy Crawford is one of the most famous supermodels of all time. She would never take a photo with this kind of situation happening. It’s more likely that someone photoshopped her to look worse than she does. This photo on the left appears to be a fake, although the one on the right was photoshopped for a magazine.
This photo of Jennifer Lawrence fell under fire because it photoshopped her to look unnatural. Sometimes people look better with a little meat on their bones. Jennifer Lawrence is by no means fat or plus sized. This photoshop deal is just gratuitous and unnecessary.
Tyra Banks’ career spans many different genres. She’s been an incredible TV host and model for the greater part of her career. This photo was illuminated on the right a bit. It by no means denies her beauty on the left. This kind of photoshop can be compared to using a filter on Instagram.
Kate Winslet looks gorgeous and radiant on the left. The airbrushing in the photo on the right is just ridiculous. She doesn’t really need photoshop! Her body positive outlook and outreach for actresses getting fair treatment in Hollywood has inspired many. Her “real” outlook on beauty is something everyone should take note of.
This picture of Fergie seems to just be light adjusted. Sometimes photographers have to mess with light after a photo is taken. Something about some studios can take the light out of photos. It’s interesting to see how people can mix up photoshop and retouching with something like light. Of course, there’s a bit of that going on in the photo on the right.
This photo of Madonna has been circulation around the internet for years. Madonna is in her 50’s and looks incredible. People who rag on her for being photoshopped ought to look more at themselves. If you’re doing as much as Madj when you’re her age, then you might be able to criticize her. It’s also worth noting that this photo was for a magazine. It’s likely she had nothing to do with it.
This photo was altered slightly, but enough to garner negative attention. This young star has been through it. Justin Bieber is in great shape, but apparently it wasn’t great enough for the ad people at Calvin Klein. They pumped up his muscles and made him look a little more buff than in the photo on the left.
The picture on the left is of Kim Kardashian without makeup on. Everyone has skin problems in their life. If you don’t you’re probably lying. Someone simply photoshopped makeup on to her face on the left. They didn’t do a very good job either!
This photo of Kiera Knightly was clearly for a Pirates of the Caribbean. When photos go up on posters they have to go through some kind of filtering process. This photo sort of looks like it was put through an Instagram filter. It doesn’t really change the features of Kiera.
Sharon Stone is an incredible actress. Her Basic Instinct performance was one of the most famous performances in all movies. This photo was photoshopped on the right. She looks pretty great in the photo on the right as well. Not sure why this was necessary, we tend to hold people to crazy standards.
Scarlet Johansson looks perfect in both photos. It looks like her natural complexion is perfectly fine! The photoshopping on the right doesn’t really do anything to help her. It was probably done by some jerk at home on his computer. People and boredom and the internet go hand in hand.
Aging is a thing. It happens. Here’s a photo of Helen Mirren, one of the most talented and celebrated actresses of all time. Her work speaks for itself. She’s always ahead of her contemporaries and can show actors everywhere what resilience and versatility looks like. Photoshopping her is just an insult.
Shakira has been in the spotlight since the early 2000’s. Her hit “Hips Don’t Lie” made her an instant superstar. This photo set makes her look stunning in both photos. It’s not hard to make Shakira look beautiful. Photoshop not needed.
Beautiful people always look beautiful. This photo of a gorgeous actress pretty much proves that point. The unnecessary photoshop job on the right is just interesting to compare to the natural photo on the right. Photoshop is useful for certain things, but this photo definitely doesn’t need it.
Laila Rouass is one of the most famous models in Great Britain. She’s been featured in a lot of different formats like TV, film and in magazines. This photoshop job is attempting to make her look bit slimmer in the stomach. She looks great in both pictures.
