Have you ever scrolled through Instagram and noticed that people's pictures didn't seem super realistic? While some users are only touch up the color on their photos, others go over the top and photoshop the entire image to change how they look. Some people become unrecognizable, and it is blatantly obvious. From added abs to enhanced backsides, continue scrolling to see the outrageous edits people made and remember it is ok to be natural.
1. Eyes Bigger Than My Future
Maybe this large eye trend is because of the Disney princess animation style, but every girl seems to think this looks normal. No one's eyes are naturally like that.
Can we leave the doe eyes and small nose trend in the past? It is physically impossible to have these facial proportions, and it is scary looking.
2. There Are Dolls That Look More Realistic
This woman looks about as real as a Sim character. Her waist is snatched and her skin looks like plastic.
The question is if she photoshopped her body into the picture or if she was really in New York.
3. Her Eyes Follow You Around The Room
It seems that this woman replaced her eyes with those from a barbie doll. She no longer had veins in her eyes, and they look painted.
The only people that would believe these are her actual eyes are people with bad eyesight. Why isn't anyone calling her out for doing this?
4. Karen Bot 5000
This woman has turned herself into the ultimate Karen overlord. She looks like she is going to ask to speak to every manager in the entire world.
This is almost frightening, and it is a mystery why she did this to herself. People have called her out on Facebook for over-editing her photos, but she blocks people who question her.
5. It's All Fun And Games Until You Get Exposed
This girl is known for calling people ugly on Facebook and claiming that she doesn't edit her pictures. She has some explaining to do since an actual photo of hers was posted without photoshop.
You can't call people ugly online while hiding behind a fake photo. She isn't fooling anyone with these overly facetuned pictures.
6. "I Have A Tiny Head And A Little Body"
We have so many questions about this one. First of all, why did she make her head so small compared to the rest of her body? Does she think this looks normal?
We aren't sure what kind of look she had in mind when she started photoshopping this picture, but we think a hangar or a bowling pin inspired her.
7. We Found The Queen Of The Catfish
With the power of photoshop at the tips of our fingers, catfishing has become much more common. People have made themselves look like different people, so you never know what they will look like in real life.
This woman's photo looks nothing like her, and when people meet her in person for the first time, they are in for a shock.
8. When You Can't Find A Pregnant Model
This swimsuit company couldn't be bothered to find a pregnant model or use a fake belly for this photoshoot, so they edited it to make her look pregnant. Most companies do not use real pregnant people because they use fake bellies.
There should be more companies that use real pregnant women for maternity clothing. Again, the fashion industry is creating unrealistic standards, even for women who are growing another human.
9. "Who's That Girl Staring Back At Me?"
She went through the trouble of photoshopping her face but forgot to fix her reflection while she was editing. She gave herself away because everyone knows what she actually looks like now.
People try to show these unattainable beauty standards that no one can achieve. She is just as pretty without the editing, and she should show off her real face.
10. Who Needs Organs Anyway
This woman has the same body shape as an ant. Her head is bigger than her waist, and her organs must be in the lower half of her body, where there is more room for them.
We wonder if she can lift as much weight like an ant. If only people would show their natural bodies on Instagram instead of these ridiculously edited photos.
11. He's The Legend Of Fake Bodies
This guy could have worked hard for a ripped body, but we will never know what is real and what is fake due to the extreme editing.
He must have been on the quest to perfection, but this is unrealistic and concerning. These are not achievable proportions, and people shouldn't think they have to look like this.
12. The Shadows Always Tell The Truth
There are so many fitness Instagrammers, and you see how amazing their bodies look online and wonder how they have the best bodies. The secret is photoshop.
This person gave herself away because she forgot to edit the shadows, which show some deflated curves.
13. On Top Of All The Body Edits She Added Fake Sunglasses
This woman clearly changed her body shape by enhancing her butt and making her arms skinny. She also added a sparkling belt and floating sunglasses.
Everybody is beautiful in their own way, and it would be nice for people to start embracing that instead of sharing these fake pictures.
14. We'll Have An Extra Serving Of Facetune
These girls have facetuned their faced to look like they are characters in a low-quality video game. It is a shame that they over-smoothed their faces.
Everyone has lines, pores, and defined features on their faces, so what is the point of trying to hide those things? We really don't understand why this has become a trend.
15. Three Years Later And She Looks Like A Different Person
The picture on the left is when she first started posting on Instagram, and the second image is three years later when she felt the need to change her face with the power of photoshop.
It seems that she lost herself along the way because of the pressures of societal beauty standards. She is naturally a beautiful girl, so why go through the trouble to change herself so much.
16. When Your Eye Merges With Your Nose
This woman could have easily fixed this mistake by erasing the part of the filter that went onto her nose, but she thought it would be better to leave it for a more original look.
She probably thought no one would notice or think about it, so she left it. This woman probably never thought that her photo would be shared with millions of people on Reddit.
17. Seems Natural, Right?
From her overly enlarged eyes to her extremely pointed chin, nothing is normal about this photo. It almost looks like someone put a doll in a puffy jacket and took a picture.
This woman was interviewed, and she said she edits her photos like this because she wants to look like an alien.
18. She Forgot To Photoshop Her Video
That awkward moment when you see someone's photo, and that look snatched, and then they post a video where they can't edit their body, and you realized their photo was edited.
There is this trend to have a super small waist, and people are editing their photos to make their waists smaller. They fail to remember that people who see them in real life know they don't look like their pictures.
19. Legs For Days And Days And Days
We are going to take a wild guess and say that her legs are photoshopped unless she is naturally 25 percent torso and 75 percent legs. She wouldn't be able to walk if those were her real proportions.
Also, she made her head smaller, which makes her neck seem like it is a few inches too long. This must be some kind of alien photoshop experiment.
20. Balloons Or Butt?
We don't know what kind of look this girl was going for, but she edited her backside and it looked like she had to balloons instead of a butt.
No one, and we repeat, no one has a butt that looks like this. It is evident that it is photoshopped and not real.
21. "I Would Like A Hairstyle That Could Double As A Helmet"
Someone found this photo while they were looking up hairstyle references, and we hope they didn't go to their salon and ask for this. The removed her ears from the picture because who needs those.
Her jaw is severely edited, and we don't know why anyone would want their hair to look like this.
22. A Family That Facetunes Together Stays Together
"Okay, everyone, smile like you are dead inside." These women are the Stepford Housewives coming to life, so beware. They look more confused than happy.
Why would you post a picture of your mom and sister with this much facetune? Did she not think they were pretty enough to fit her Instagram aesthetic.
23. When Someone Posts Your Photo Before You Had A Chance To Send Them The Edited Version
On the left side, we have the image that the shows official account posted. There was no editing, and she looks perfectly normal. On the right, we have the picture she posted to her personal account. Can you spot the difference?
It must have been awkward when she realized everyone would be able to tell how much editing she uses for her photos. Why pretend to be someone you are not when you can embrace your natural looks.
24. Something Is Fishy With Those Abs
When you have been slacking at the gym and developed a dad-bod, but it's beach season, and you want your followers to think you are in shape.
It is apparent that he does not have a six-pack, but he thinks that people online will believe this is his body.
25. Someone Had A Major Glowup
In ten years, this little boy grew up, worked on his muscles, and somehow his torso got smaller than it was when he was a child. Is anyone buying this?
It looks like he is missing a few ribs with the edits that he made. What will happen in another ten years? Will his waist disappear entirely?
26. Photoshop: Erase Years And Pores Off Your Face
This woman was running for mayor in her town, and she used the overly photoshopped picture on the left as her campaign photo. People must have been very confused when they saw her in person.
The people in her town must have laughed when they saw this because they knew she looked nothing like the advertised photos.
27. Why Did She Have To Smooth The Dogs Face?
What has the world come to that people are now photoshopping their dogs to look smooth. Mariah Carey clearly smoothed out her skin and her dog, so you can't see that it has fur.
Who would want to see a dog with realistic features anyway? If people are going to edit themselves, can they leave the animals out of it?
28. When You Get Carried Away With The Smoothing Tool
This girl was heavy-handed with the smoothing on her fake. You can also tell that she used an effect on her eyes and whitened her teeth. It is fine to use a little to enhance the photo, but it becomes too much when you don't even look human anymore.
She is a beautiful girl who doesn't need so much editing. Also, no one on Instagram is going to believe that she naturally looks like this.
29. Hot Dogs Or Fingers?
Not only do we have to be self-conscious about our waists, thighs, and back sides, but now we also have to feel bad about our knucks and fingers?!
This person smoothed out all the wrinkles on her knuckles and fingers, but people wouldn't be able to bend their fingers without those things.
30. Animation Is Getting More And More Realistic
This girl is notorious for editing her face to look like an animation. In all of her pictures, she looks more like a cartoon character than a human, and no one is buying it.
She smooths out her face to a level where there are no realistic features, and then she whitens her eyes, which is unnatural because everyone has veins in their eyes, and she adds highlights to her nose.
31. No Pores, No Problem
Did this person put on the Michael Jackson filter when they were taking this photo. He accidentally made the woman behind him fuse to his cheek.
Not only did he edit every inch of his face, but he also pulled in his ears. Wouldn't you love to know what he really looks like because we would?
32. Lesson Learned: Never Trust Hair Coloring Results You Find Online
When you see hairdressers postin color results online, you can't always trust them. It takes a lot of time and patience to get your hair to a silvery blonde, and many people don't realize that.
The person who posted this was not happy with the yellow-toned blonde result, so they edited it to be a silver-blonde that is misleading to people who want that color.
33. She Claims To Naturally Look Like This Until Someone Tagged Her In A Video
This woman will block your account if you comment on her photos, saying that she edits her photos. She wants everyone to believe that she naturally looks like the photo on the left.
The right image is a video she was tagged in, and you can clearly see that she doesn't look like the photos she posts, not that anyone believed it.
34. In What World Does This Seem Natural To Some People?
What is with people trying to make their faces look like they have been smushed into a smaller shape. She made her jawline into a triangle, stretched out her mouth, pinched in her nose, and widened her eyes.
This is beyond unnatural, but people will go to great lengths to appear a certain way on social media. It is sad because they can't accept themselves for how they look naturally.
35. When You Want New Expensive Clothes, But Can't Afford Them Use Photoshop
Do you remember those dolls from your childhood that had velcro clothing to change their outfits quickly? This influencer has made himself the real-life version of those dolls.
This is not a bad idea to see what you would look like in certain clothes before purchasing them.
36. Something Is Not Right In This Picture, But We Can't Put Our Finger On It
Where do we start with this one? Do we talk about the fact that her feet are bigger than her head or that her hand is an inverted pirate hook hand?
Also, how are her legs so long? Maybe she's born with it; maybe it's photoshop! It seems like she even photoshopped the sky to be purple. There is nothing real about this image.
37. They Must Have Very Strong Genes
This girl loved the look of her icy blue eyes, so she gave them to all of her family members. Seriously, who facetunes their grandpa?
People are so obsessed with their social media aesthetics that they will smooth out the wrinkles on their parent's faces, so everyone looks ageless, but it does not look natural.
38. Instagram Vs. Court Date
This is another version of catfishing. She changed every feature on her body to look like a different person. Who is she trying to impress because anyone that meets her will realize it was all fake.
Imagine if you were meeting this woman for the first time, and you had only seen her pictures. You would be looking for a completely different person before realizing that she doesn't look like that.
39. Find One Realistic Thing About This Photo
It is pretty sad when the only real thing in a photo is someone's fake boobs. This woman has made every part of her body smaller beside her head and boobs.
She has the legs and arms of a daddy long leg spider and the waist of someone who is missing a few ribs.
40. Don't You Hate It When Someone Posts A Picture Of You That Isn't Edited
In one photo, she looks like an exaggerated action figure that has a muscular build with a tiny waist. In the original photo, there is nothing wrong, but she was unhappy with it.
Sadly, she feels like she needs to change her body to fit the Instagram beauty standards. She looks fine without all these bizarre edits.
41. Instagram Vs The Harsh Reality
There is a lesson to be learned, do not always believe what you see on Instagram, because you never know who is editing their photos. This girl changed the shape of her body to make her waist smaller.
Some girls scroll through Instagram, wondering how everyone has the same perfect body, but they fail to remember that a majority of photos are edited to make them look perfect.
42. This Is Called "Blackfishing"
There are so many things wrong with this. This girl edits her photos to look African-American, and it is wrong on so many different levels. This is blatant racism and cultural appropriation.
Blackfishing is the modern-day blackface, and it needs to be stopped. While it is nice to appreciate a different culture, it is not ok to try to make yourself look like a different race.
43. When You Forget To Cover Your Second Bellybutton
Remember the show Kyle XY where he didn't have a bellybutton cause he was some kind of alien? Well, this girl has two bellybuttons, so does that make her an alien or extra-human?
This girl must have forgotten to erase her original bellybutton when she was adding a new one higher up on her stomach, a classic mistake.
44. Kylie, You Have Some Explaining To Do...
Kylie is the inspiration behind many of the crazy edits on this list. In her photos, she has a small waist, big hips, and the perfect hourglass figure.
These standards are unattainable for most women without surgery, and she doesn't even really look like that.
45. Britney And Her Curvy Cabinets
Britney Spears posted this photo to her Instagram, and it is clear that she edited her body because of the curvy cabinets behind her. We aren't sure why she felt the need to edit her toned body.
If you look at her Instagram, you can see how fit she is without the help of photoshop. She posts many of her workouts on social media, so you know she doesn't need to fake pictures to look toned.
46. Tagged Vs. Uploaded Photo
When you have a large following online, you should be aware that people will upload pictures of you that they took at events or meet and greets. This woman is an influencer, and someone took this photo of her at an event, and then she uploaded the right image to her Instagram.
She is posing differently, and she has a filter on her photo, so we like to think that she didn't over-edit it too much, but you can never know what is real or fake these days.
47. When You Decide To Change Races And Become A Different Person
This is another version of someone darkening their skin tone with the help of editing apps. It is bizarre that people feel the need to darken themselves instead of embracing their natural tone.
She also gave herself a nose job and changed her body shape, among other things. Who does she think she is fooling?
48. He Dropped Out Of College To Become A Model
This boy was exposed on social media when people realized he didn't look like the pictures he was posting. He used photoshop to change his eye color, skin tone, and hair color.
He also decided to drop out of school to pursue a modeling career, but that might be difficult when all your photos are heavily photoshopped.
49. Those Snapchat Filters Are Getting Stronger
The woman on the left looks like she is the daughter of the woman on the right. However, these photos are the same person, but one is overly edited to erase any sign of aging.
We understand that it can be difficult for people to accept that they are aging, but it is impossible to stay young forever, so just enjoy the journey.
50. We Have So Many Questions
The longer you look at this, the more bizarre it gets. Where do we start? He is missing fingers because he dragged them together as he was editing his body.
He gave himself fake abs and a more defined waistline. Also, why are his pants almost off? Everything about this picture leaves us with more questions.
