Photoshop is an amazing piece of software. It allows you to take a photo and, if you have the skills, transform it in such a way that not only could you completely change it compared to what it looked like originally, but also make it seem like there was no “originally” at all, and the photo was like that the whole time. However, not all people that use Photoshop have the skill to create truly unrecognizable transformations.
This gallery of edited photos, as compiled by 9gag, is not meant to show off how people transform photos, but it’s more of a way of the person behind these edits to showcase just how far they can go to transform whatever is on the photo. Check out the gallery below!
1. Slimmed down
2. Alright, this one is slightly easier to tell that it’s photoshopped
As evidenced by the somewhat unnatural complexion in the edited photo.
3. From normal looking lady to kawaii lady
4. This is how easy Photoshop makes weight loss
If only it was that easy in real life.
5. Toned up face
6. Once again, you can tell this one has been edited
But still, when you compare the differences between the two photos, it just shows what this software can actually do.
7. Whoever this person is, they really seem to like slimming down people’s cheeks
8. Certainly a big difference here
9. Nailing the big-eyed, tight faced look
11. The first one, as heartless as this may sound, looks incredibly amateur and unnatural
12. From a mugshot-esque portrait to an anime look
13. Weight loss in 5 minutes
14. A nice beach shot
15. Slightly narrower
16. I like how the editor slimmed down this lady’s waist but kept her breasts the same size
17. Asleep on the plane
18. “This coffee is not what I expected”
20. Getting into CGI territory…
Proof that you can go crazy with Photoshop should you want to.
