The worst retail Photoshop disasters of all time

Photoshop is a great tool for brushing up misplaced hairs, wrinkled clothing, or the odd zit.

But it’s no secret that retailers love to abuse Photoshop to make women pencil-thin.

Sometimes this obsession with Photoshop leads to massive, comical fails.

Website Photoshop Disasters collected many of these mishaps. The hilarious website recently closed down, but we can still laugh at these mishaps.

Take a look at some of these outrageous Photoshop fails.
