photoshop fail

From her high profile split with billionaire James Packer to the shade she received from singer Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey hasn’t had it easy these past few months.

And just as the hype surrounding the once celebrated star turns towards her new makeup collection, Mariah has been criticised for photoshopping her Thanksgiving photos.

Last week, the 46-year-old New Yorker shared a series of images of herself preparing for the American holiday on Instagram, one of which caught the eye of some very observant fans.

The picture shows the popstar standing in a plunging white bodysuit and distressed pair of jeans while holding a pie in one hand and a can of cream in the other.

Mariah’s followers were quick to call her out for digitally manipulating the shot, using tell-tale signs like a strange indent by her upper arm and a warped cabinet door behind one leg as proof of the offence.

“All that money she got and nobody could photoshop her correctly,” wrote one social media user.

“Mariah Carey was grateful for photoshop on Thanksgiving,” quipped another.

Actress Lindsay Lohan loves sharing mirror selfies with her fans, but it seems she just can't resist a bit of gratuitous editing here and there.

The 28-year-old shared a (now-deleted) image on Twitter earlier today of herself trying out a new waist trainer, the same contraption favoured by all three Kardashian sisters.

Keen to show off some Kardashian-worthy curves, it seems Lindsay had Photoshopped this image to make her waist appear smaller:

The photo was captioned, "Just received my waist trainer from @nowaistclique!! #LovingIt #majorsituation."

Lindsay's followers quickly noticed the wobbly stairs on the right of Lindsay's waist, a telltale sign of bad Photoshopping. "Photoshop is hard," wrote one snarky Twitter user, with another adding, "The photoshop is hilarious (look at the bottom of the stairs!)"

This is not the first time poor Lindsay has been caught out for obviously editing images to make her body look curvier. Twice this year she has posted edited images, one enhanced to give her a more bootylicious bum:

And another edited to slim her waist:

Calm down Lindsay, you're gorgeous as you are!


First an "accidental" racist tweet, and now a seriously obvious Photoshop fail… Lindsay Lohan needs to step away from her smartphone!

The actress is in Paris at the moment, where she took in one of Kanye West's concerts earlier this week.

Last night she posted a "casual" photo of her posing in a black leotard, taken from her hotel room at The Plaza Athenee.


My feet look red lol- had to take that out. Only real red is my hair.

The photo, in which Lindsay's feet are cropped out, was captioned, "My feet look red lol- had to take that out. Only real red is my hair."

It wasn't her missing feet that were the issue though – what most followers instantly spotted was that the white doorframe behind Lindsay was completely distorted – a telltale sign she had Photoshopped the image to make her bum appear more pert or even curvier.

Lindsay has been accused of editing her images before, but last's night post was definitely one of the more obvious attempts.

Commenters were quick to point out the rookie mistake, with one writing, "Mmm nice bent door!! Photoshop galore!" and another saying, "worst photoshop ever but I mean she looks cute."

The post is still online after 8 hours, so either Lindsay hasn't read the comments yet or she just doesn't care. We're guessing it's the latter!

It has been an embarrassing couple of weeks for the actress – aside from her social media fails, she is also required to re-do an additional 125 hours of community service for her 2012 reckless driving case, after her lawyers originally submitted her hours on stage in West End show Speed the Plow and her meet-and-greets with fans as community service work.

Cheeky or what?!


Fans of actress Kerry Washington got a bit of a shock yesterday when InStyle magazine released their latest cover image.

Kerry posted a picture of the magazine's March cover on her Instagram feed, and followers were quick to comment on the fact that her skin appeared dramatically lighter than usual.

The Scandal actress shared the image with the caption, "I'm THRILLED to share with you all that I'm on the cover of this year's March @instylemagazine! Can't wait for you guys to see it and read it! So honored. And crazy excited."

Although she seemed delighted with the cover, commenters were less than happy with the changes to her skin tone. "I don't like this picture of you Kerry. It looks way too light I had to look twice," wrote one follower, with another saying, "I'm glad that you made the cover, but you should speak out about them lightening your skin. Not cool. Tired of the media doing this type of stuff."

InStyle yesterday issued an apology via their website. Although they have explained the reason for the lighter colouring, they have not admitted to intentionally lightening Kerry's skin in the cover image.

"While we did not digitally lighten Kerry's skin tone, our cover lighting has likely contributed to this concern," the magazine explained.

"We understand that this has resulted in disappointment and hurt. We are listening, and the feedback has been valuable. We are committed to ensuring that this experience has a positive influence on the ways in which we present all women going forward."

Kerry too seemed happy with InStyle's explanation, writing, "Beautiful statement. Thank u 4 opening this convo. Its an important 1 that needs to be had."

Definitely a faux-pas, but very well handled by both Kerry and InStyle.



Lindsay Lohan may have been in hospital battling symptoms of the rare virus chikungunya this week, but she showed she's never too ill to cause controversy!

The Mean Girls star shared a mirror selfie on Instagram which soon sparked a massive reaction from her followers, but probably not for the reason she had hoped.

Lindsay's photo, which showed her teeny-tiny body clad in a pair of Calvins and a crop top, was captioned "#mycalvins are helping me fight off my chikungunya hehe"

While the actress' noticeably slimmed-down waistline may of course have been a result of her recent struggle with illness, fans were quick to point out a number of discrepancies in the photo including some wonky-looking bottles on the right of the sink and uneven lines on the wall behind. Both are telltale signs of Photoshopping which have caught out other celebrities such as Beyoncé and Paris Hilton in the past.

Commenters soon ridiculed the picture with one writing, "lol photoshop fail" and another saying, "lmao the photoshop is so obvious here."

Lindsay has yet to confirm or deny the rumours but either way we're delighted to see that she is on the mend at least, after contracting chikungunya from infected mosquitos during her holiday in French Polynesia over Christmas.



If your picture is going to be shown online all over the world, it's understandable you might like your teeth whitened a little, or some extra colour in your cheeks. But there is a point of no return when it comes to Photoshop – and whoever edited these poor women's photos has just gone WAY too far.

The 26 portraits, which were taken last month at the finals of the 2014 Miss World Phillippines competition, have come under fire for showing wildly unnatural skin tones, face shapes and eye colours.

This model's eyes look totally freaky:

While this woman's face has lost all contours altogether:

Commenters on were quick to criticise whoever oversaw the editing of the images, with one saying, "All these girls look like they've been sandblasted smooth. They have almost no faces left."

Another asked if the editor was possibly "high when he post-processed these photos." 

While the Photoshopped pale faces and red lips are an interesting comment on cultural beauty preferences, we can't imagine these women were too happy with the finished product!
