Unless you're a model who has perfect skin, perfect sunset lighting, and a body that never looks awkward, you know just how hard it is to get the perfect photo to post online.
However, these near-perfect photos that people put on the internet were ruined—either by someone in the background of their own editing choices.
So Strong, Dude!
If you're hoping to flex how strong you are to the masses, perhaps make an effort to hide the mirror image showing that you just photoshopped most of the plates onto the bar.
Nice try, dude.
I genuinely cannot wrap my head around her decision to photoshop the Starbucks logo onto the cup.
Like, what value does it actually add to the picture? A coffee is a coffee.
Congrats On The Engagement!
This couple hired a professional photographer to snap a collection of engagement pictures to share with their friends and family.
Turns out, they have an extra participant in the joy.
The Fence Doesn't Lie
People will try so hard on social media to look like their lives are exciting through constant travel.
However, this guy just tagged photos taken in his backyard as foreign locations.
Reflective Surfaces Are The Enemies Of Photo Editing
You might work hard to manipulate and edit a photo so that you look thinner or "prettier," perhaps even making sure that you haven't warped anything in the background in the process.
Reflections will still get you.
This Arguably Improves The Photo
These two women were taking a selfie while out on a boat only to have a surprise guest jump into the picture as well.
It's not every day you catch such an incredible picture of a whale breaching.
L.A. Girls Are Shaken At Getting Found Out
I am absolutely lost for words.
Imagine being so obsessed with people you don't even know on the internet perceiving you as rich and exciting that you pay to use a set of a private plane.
There's No One Better To Photobomb Your Wedding Pictures
Picture this: after years together with the love of your life, you finally decide to tie the knot in a ceremony on the beach.
Out of nowhere, Jason Momoa shows up to the ceremony with a trident.
Not Even Nature Is Safe
After seeing many photos of a place called Crater Lake that looked like the picture on the left, this person was inclined to visit and awe at it in person only for the reality to be underwhelming.
I'm underwhelmed, too.
You're Not Fooling Anyone, Sweetie
This woman decided to try and flex her nonexistent wealth by photoshopping the Ferrari logo onto the steering wheel of a car that clearly isn't a Ferrari.
It's okay to drive a Ford Focus.
"Am I Cute?"
This person was trying to take a photo of the famous ruins of Machu Picchu from a higher vantage point only for a llama to stick its head into the view right after they clicked the button.
Honestly, still a great photo.
Overusing Features Is Worse Than Doing Nothing
There's such thing as overdoing the edits.
Sure, brightening the white of your teeth a little might make you feel more confident about a photo, but going too white is just blinding.
If you went on a hike and didn't post a photo of you posing on the top of the mountain on Instagram, did you even hike at all?
This husky had to make sure everyone knew he completed the hike too.
The Filter Name Is Right There
It's one thing to lie, but it's a whole other thing to lie when the evidence of your dishonesty is visible.
Like, not only is the truth exposed, but no one will trust you again.
There are some instances where I can understand people's desires to photoshop photos, but this one makes no sense.
No one would have cared if there weren't eggs on the plate.
I Think This Is A Great Idea
Imagine posting a selfie so vastly different from how you look in real life that it inspires the government of the UK to make it a criminal offense to photoshop that hard.
Please do this!
Cats Don't Care About Your Wedding
Oh, you were busy taking your wedding photos on one of the happiest days of your life?
This cat does not care at all because he has his own priorities—meowing at things and sleeping.
...In Fact, They Might Hate It
You know how parents sometimes worry about getting remarried to someone new out of fear that their children will not like the new partner?
Now you have to worry about your cat's feelings.
Not As Romantic As They'd Hoped
First of all, sticking half of your body out of a car just so you can kiss your significant other who is doing the exact same thing just doesn't seem comfortable or necessary.
Second of all, this is a great photobomb.
This Is Just So Unnecessary
I can understand why some influencers fake their body proportions, skin texture, or facial features to keep the likes coming in.
I don't think anyone really cares about clouds.
...It's Actually Shockingly Common Among Insta Models
The fact that multiple people on this earth regularly take it upon themselves to photoshop a stock image of clouds into their photos is truly a sign that the apocalypse is coming.
Make sure you have your supplies ready!
In His Feelings And In This Restaurant
This guy went out with his family for dinner and they decided to take a group photo.
It wasn't until he was looking at it later that he realized Drake was photobombing them in the background.
The Foot Is All I Can Look At
Once my eyes locked onto how absurdly small this woman had photoshopped her one foot to look, I couldn't focus on anything else in the picture...
Which I bet is the opposite of what she wanted.
This Is Like A Renaissance Painting
There's a lot going on in this picture. In the foreground, this couple is joyfully happy together.
In the background, a server is having his junk punched by a child while everyone reacts in horror. Art.
This Is Highkey Terrifying
After she posted this on Facebook and some of her friends commented that it looked a little too edited, she insisted that this was all natural.
In fact, she blocked everyone who disagreed with her.
The Pose Is Impressive
First of all, this pose looks super uncomfortable for both the woman and the man.
Second of all, he's definitely killing it in the back and honestly makes the photo so much better.
The Blond Horse Is So Mad
The horse in the background looks like the horse version of the popular girl in high school, whereas the brown one in the front is the horse version of the class clown.
I'm always amazed by the things people will photoshop—their eyes, their knees, a tree, literally anything ever—but I never thought I would see someone photoshop their mugshot after getting arrested.
That's next level!
"Aw, Congrats Guys!"
A marriage proposal happening in a public space is enough to make any person want to stop and watch the happy couple for a moment, and baby hippos are no exception apparently.
Every animal is romantic at heart.
These Were Taken The Same Night
On the left is the photo that the woman posted of herself from the night. On the right is a photo that was taken by a photographer at the event.
Spot the difference.
He's So Long!
Taking a panorama photo seems like a fun idea until your dog decides that standing still just isn't for him and decides to start sprinting in the middle of it.
I'm laughing way too hard at this.
If Anything, It Makes The Photo Better
This family was trying to capture a portrait of them together when a rainbow lorikeet flew in front of them and photobombed the picture.
However, it's such a rare and beautiful thing to catch on camera that they couldn't even be mad.
They Don't Even Really Look Human
I understand that sometimes you might want to airbrush over a zit or two so that your skin looks a little smoother...
But this couple took things way too far.
She Claims It's "All Natural"
I can understand how, with all the beauty standards put on women in the day and age, she might feel inclined to want to photoshop her figure a little despite already being beautiful...
But this is just unbelievably fake.
Some Photobombs Are Good
The guy who took this explained that, on their trip to the Oregon coast, his son begged to get this plastic shark from the souvenir shop and then proceeded to photobomb his picture of the ocean.
Funny enough, it's now this dad's favorite picture from the trip.
The Whole Gang Wanted To Be In The Picture
This couple was just trying to take a nice photo together to share on social media...
But this family of raccoons decided that they too deserved to be in the picture.
What A Balling Engagement
I know that your wedding is supposed to be the best day of your life, but I think it's fair to say that the engagement was a little more special because DWAYNE WADE just showed up.
Did She Draw Them On?
The top half of her body looks perfectly normal, but the bottom half looks like it was drawn on.
Lowkey, she looks like a character in an early 2000s video game from the waist down due to all the editing.
He Was Just A Little Curious
This woman was trying to take some photos of her clothes so she could resell them online when this tortoise meandered into the frame of the photo to check out what was going on.
It's a good-looking turtle, though!
That's Why It Doesn't Look The Same On You
Have you ever ordered some clothes online only for them to show up and look nothing like they did on the model from the site?
It's because the clothes are pinned and clipped to look better on the models.
Not So Much Of A Flex
First of all, it's pretty tacky to post a photo of you holding a stack of money.
It's even tackier when you're trying to pretend you're holding a stack of $100 bills and not just one $100 around some $1 bills.
What A Weird Thing To Fake...
This Instagram model became popular for her heterochromia—a condition that makes each eye a different color.
It turns out, however, that she's been faking the condition with color contacts, which people realized based on her childhood photos she posted.
A lot of people and companies have taken to the trend of posting one large photo as a series of photos.
It might look cool sometimes, but that's only if you post them in the right order.
Mirrors Don't Lie
Here's the thing:
I think she looks a lot prettier with her natural skin texture rather than the excessive airbrushing and blurring intentionally used. Reality is always so much better.
From Stunning To Soaked
Sure, you get to see the aesthetically pleasing photos people post on Instagram...
But there is often an unpleasant backstory for how that perfect picture ended up on your screen.
How Is This Funny At All?
It is pretty embarrassing and pathetic, the lengths that people will go to try to gain a couple of minutes of fame from going viral.
Now, he might face fines and/or jail time.
This Has To Be A Crime
She's already got a great body, but ridiculously photoshopping herself to look like an entirely different person to get more followers online is not only unethical but also so unnecessary.
Behind The Scenes
Behind every girl posting beautiful Instagram photos in paradise, there is a boyfriend or husband who is sick and tired of taking hundreds of vacation photos every day they're on a trip.
I get it, dude.
Some People Lean Into The Lies For Fun
This guy has dedicated his Instagram to being a fake travel blog where he photoshops himself (sometimes even using the same photo of himself) into different foreign locations and acts like he's traveling.
Maybe change clothes!
I Love Her Honesty
Here's the thing: there's nothing wrong with putting photos of yourself looking your best on the internet.
However, it's good to be honest about the fact that you don't always look that flawless.
