We’ve often thought there are two primary kinds of Photoshop fuck-ups. On the one hand, there’s the overzealous touching up–with enough buffing, scrubbing, lighting trickery and digital sweetening, this first kind of problem usually results in famous people looking nothing like themselves, in skin losing texture or internal organs magically disappearing. More generally, this first kind results in human bodies no longer looking anything like they belong to humans.
The second kind, though, that’s the kind we can all agree with. The fuck up. The blunder. The all out catastrophe…
Apparently Giuliana Rancic leads a double life as the face of aerobics/activewear/leggings brand Danskin.
…Or should we say as the “giant head” of aerobics/activewear/leggings brand Danskin? More
Not only can Photoshop remove any and all texture human beings have for our skin, it can also apparently take away all those pesky internal organs we’ve been struggling to get rid of for years! Who needs a spleen when you have “skater dresses” to fit into? More
South Korea’s foremost joke Photoshopping service has turned to altering photos to fit unattainable beauty standards. Not to be outdone, we photoshopped pictures of our staff with cats! More
The cover of straight-to-video gem College Vampires is a fantastic template for a Sexy Photoshop Disaster Halloween costume!

Now, if you’re a very rude person, you might be thinking, “Britney Spears hasn’t looked like that in twelve years!” More
Gwyneth Paltrow has been the face of Boss fragrance for a while now–it was over a year ago that her first (“extremely awkward”) Boss Nuit campaign dropped. Now she’s fronting ads for Boss Jour, the brand’s sister fragrance, and they’re a mess of over-eager Photoshop. More
It turns out that if you take the bones out of a woman’s face, she tends to look like an alien sex android built from the finest of skin-like materials. More
British high street chain Next (their price point puts them roughly in competition with Zara) offers a “black panelled jersey bodycon dress” for the low, low price of £35 and a narrow slice of your torso. More
We’d never heard of Shop Tasneen until this morning, though it appears to be one of those sites offering “clubwear,” the skintight tube dresses, flouncy ruffled tops and scarves for shirts that JWOWW might prefer. More
We see a lot of Photoshop disasters around here and oftentimes, they’re examples some readers would dispute–it’s not an out and out disaster, they say, if it’s just an overabundance of airbrushing. We admit we’re probably more inclined than some to call disaster if it’s an example of too much Photoshop (as opposed to an example of particularly bad Photoshop), but this time, we can probably all agree.
Above is a product shot for the ‘Charming Layered Ruffles Lace Hem Dress’ over on SammyDress.com–a seeming bargain at $5. …BUT AT WHAT COST?! Unless we’re being totally ablest and the model actually only has one leg, this is some … More
Did anyone else grow up playing The Sims? Sure you did. Did anyone else go real far down the rabbit hole of internet downloading (at TheSimsResource, perhaps?) so you could customize your Sim families with characters from television, comics and assorted pop culture ephemera? We used to download hundreds of skins–you know, so we could finally make Buffy and Spike happy together. By which we mean, Melissa McCarthy looks exactly like a shitty version of that–the incompetent mapping of human features across a digital canvas. More
