There can be little doubt that Photoshop is an incredibly useful image editing tool. However, it can go out of kilter when it is used to make impossible looking images that are obviously fake. Of course, some people use it to create pictures that are cartoon-like in their appeal and there is certainly nothing wrong with that. However, we all have a little bit of fun and a wry grin on our faces when we see an image that has been Photoshopped which, well, wasn’t supposed to look like it has ended up turning out. In 2018, there were plenty of these Photoshop fails brought to our attention thanks to the world’s press and online media outlets. Even more spicily, many of them featured celebrities, and who doesn’t like to see a celeb making a bit of a fool of themselves from time-to-time, after all?
Calvin Klein’s Our Family Campaign
In one of those embarrassing moments for a major clothing brand, the launch of a 2018 campaign by Calving Klein featuring the Kardashians was called out for silly Photoshopping. If you look at the image of Khloe and Kim Kardashian modelling underwear with their sister, Kylie, nothing appears to be too untoward at first. Looking at Kylie’s legs gives the game away, though. One is missing or must be impossibly bent behind her siblings.
Rihanna’s Exotic Look

Singing sensation Rihanna may look like the very picture of the Caribbean in a picture she shared on social media in 2018 but there’s something up. Look at her right hand and you can see the tell-tale signs of Photoshopping. Her thumb appears to have two well-manicured nails which cannot be right, surely?
Grande Has a Grand Hand

If you feel a bit sorry for Rihanna, then don’t worry because she is in good company. Ariana Grande also posted an image of herself on social media which wasn’t exactly realistic. The singer is hugging herself but fans soon pointed out that something is amiss in the photo. It appears to include a hand which is nearly as long as her entire upper arm! Of course, it could come in handy if you have a hard-to-reach itch.

What a Vista Holden Has
Widely shared in 2018 over social media was an image of the British celebrity Amanda Holden in her bikini. The photo is certainly sympathetic but it is not entirely realistic. Look at the horizon Holden is staring out towards. The bend in the shape of it is all you need to know that digital trickery has been involved somewhere along the line.
School’s Faux Pas
Bear in mind that it is not just celebrities and celebrity endorsed brands that make Photoshopping an art in the pursuit of failure. In France, a school decided it needed to make its students look more diverse, so it used digital editing to alter the appearance of some of its intake by darkening the skin colour of some of its students. It caused quite a stir at home and made headlines around the world.
Swift Makes Waves
Another singer who managed to get caught out by a Photoshop fail recently was Taylor Swift. She posted a picture of herself on social media for all to see, surrounded by a group of friends. The happy image certainly includes many of the most likeable traits including the fact that it overlooks a wonderful sea view. However, some fans pointed out to the singer that the guard rail that is stopping her from falling appears to be misshapen. Does this mean Swift enjoys hanging out in potentially dangerous spots or is it the hand of the digital editor at work? Only you can decide!
