All professional photographs are usually touched-up a tiny bit. Sometimes specks of dust need to be removed, maybe the image needs a little bit of color correction or even a dose of red eye reduction.
Then there are images that get completely ‘shopped (aka Photoshopped). For example, look at the terrible image of Oprah to the right from a 1989 issue of TV Guide. Oprah’s head doesn’t even look natural transplanted on Ann-Margret’s body. It’s ridiculous!
While “Photoshopping” an image might be a creative opportunity for artistic photographers and designers, for news editors, it can all be a bit of a nightmare once the public finds out.
Here are 7 of the most famous Photoshop fakes according to Photopreneur.com.
