Celebrity Photoshopping is nothing new. It’s been on magazine covers for ages. And with social media, celebrities are now capable of posting digitally altered versions themselves.

As a trend, celebrity Photoshopping is frequently criticised for promoting unrealistic body standards that, at worst, can leave the star looking almost inhuman.

And it’s pretty pervasive. Everyone from Kylie Jenner to BeyoncĂ© have been accused of peddling falsified images of themselves online. Here are 14 alleged celebrity Photoshop mishaps that everyone noticed:

Vogue posted this photo of Miranda Kerr on Instagram after the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

But when Kerr posted the same photo on Instagram a few months later, fans noticed a huge difference.

Take a look at her right side.

Kerr's waistline is noticeably smaller than it is in the original photo.

She claimed she pulled the photo off the internet and didn't know it was photoshopped, but it's not the only photo she's posted with those issues.

Lindsay Lohan forgot to take care of one crucial feature in this shot.

'My feet look red lol -- had to take that out. Only real red is my hair,' she wrote in her now-deleted Instagram post.

The door behind her is warped, indicating that some parts of the photo were curved.

Doors shouldn't look like that.

Fans called out this Kylie Jenner selfie for Photoshop.

One of Jenner's many selfies.

The wall in the background appears to curve right around where her stomach bends in.


For what it's worth, Jenner took to Snapchat not long after to explain that it wasn't Photoshop, it's simply the way her curtain looks.

Jordyn Woods recently posted a photo with her BFF, Kylie Jenner.

Just a couple of best friends, posing.

Look closer at the carpet.

That doesn't look right.

The lines should be straight, but they have been distorted, indicating some digital work has been done.

Beyonce definitely doesn't need any Photoshop.


But in this 2014 photo posted to her website, fans noticed something was amiss.

If you look closely, the stair doesn't appear straight.

How are you supposed to walk down those?

It's not the first time she's been accused of manipulating her thigh gap in pictures.

Strange stairs have also haunted other celebrities, like Lindsay Lohan.

Ariana Grande counted down the days until the release of her single 'Focus.'

Look carefully at her right hand.

Her right hand looks bizarrely long.

Not sure what happened there.

It could be because of the camera lens. Or maybe someone decided to make Grande's hand twice its usual size in Photoshop.

Photoshopping isn't always for bodies. Check out this photo of Selena Gomez that was posted by her makeup artist.

The door appears warped -- it may have been manipulated to make her hair look more volumized.


The doorway is warped right above her shoulder, indicating that's where it was Photoshopped. The effect may have been to make Gomez's hair look more full than it actually is.

Model Martha Hunt is selling a swimsuit with another model in this Victoria's Secret Instagram post.

It's beach season.

But did something happen to her arm?


In this image, it looks like her left arm disappeared somehow, with an elbow impossibly far away from her body.

This Instagram photo from Taylor Swift got attention for showing off her belly button.

But the metal guardrail behind her and the band Haim shouldn't look like that.

Guardrails shouldn't be flexible.

As with doorways and walls, there's a curved background feature that should appear straight. It's a dead giveaway for Photoshopping.

This John Mayer selfie was supposed to be a joke, right?

They look like cartoon characters.

The singer posted a photo of himself with his friend Ricky Van Veen, who co-founded College Humour.

Needless to say, their skin is usually not that smooth.

Good one.

People accused Kim Kardashian of Photoshop in this mirror selfie.

Selfie queen.

The door frame appears to bend right around where she might want to make her stomach look flatter.

Do you see it?

A representative for Kardashian later denied the image was altered, and Kardashian herself said she's 'just trying to motivate others & show anyone struggling with weight they can totally achieve whatever they want if they are dedicated.'

It's far from the only time that Kardashian has allegedly been caught posting altered images.

Kris Jenner has also been called out for Photoshop. Here's a selfie Gordon Ramsay posted when they met in 2014.

Just two cooks in the kitchen.

And here's the version Jenner posted to her own Instagram page.

In this one photo, Lady Gaga is working out.

Gaga appears very focused.

It looks like the image may have been digitally altered.

What happened to the room?

The whole room seems to bend upward, right around where her upper-arms are.

Gaga has spoken critically about magazine covers that Photoshopped her image in the past.

Britney Spears looks great, and she often shows it off on Instagram.

But commenters noticed that you can't see the pool behind her back arch.

Where'd it go?

It makes it seem like the arch was digitally expanded, instead of being her actual pose.

For what it's worth, Spears doesn't seem to have an issue with Photoshopping.

'There's so much they can do with computers to make people look a certain way,' she told Ryan Seacrest. 'So, when I'm waiting for them to take a picture, I'm like, 'I might as well eat six pieces of pizza.''
