PHOTOSHOP DISASTERS GREATEST HITS
Monthly Archives: June 2012
While the all-wheel drive and 600 horsepower are attractive features to be sure, the coolest new tech in the Lamborghini Urus SUV is AutoValet®, a computer-activated driverless system which instructs the vehicle to locate and self-park in the closest unregulated street space it can find.
I feel for this GA. Really, I do. They put a lot of effort into adding motion blur to the background layer, as well as the wheels, to create a realistic illusion that this was an actual photo of the car speeding down the road, only to experience that sinking feeling one gets when the plane lifts off the runway just as they remember they left the passport by the front door.
Thanks Kevin. You can see the original on the Jalopnik site.
I said to ‘take a little off the ears,’ not take the ears off!
Ugh! This cutout is so bad it actually looks as if the model is standing behind a cardboard print with a light bulb-shaped hole to put his head into. He may be saving money on gas, but that’s nothing compared to what he must be spending on steroids.
Welcome to your weekend edition of Photoshop Disasters: Links We Love. We had a really enjoyable couple of weeks here on the site. We visited a haunted restaurant, lined up our cardboard cut-outs for Silly Monkeys, and cuddled with a holographic baby. Then there was this post, which boasted so many disasters that we could barely even count them all! Now it’s time once again to turn our attention to the ways in which our favorite software has been making news around the web. Check it out.
- Great news for people who want to look like Nic Cage in their photos (whomever they may be), but who lack the Photoshop skills to make it happen. Now you can pay $12 to get “Cage-ified.” [BuzzFeed]

- Soon we may know definitively whether images have been Photoshopped, and not just because we’ve spotted a disaster. New software that may be able to detect the use of Photoshop is in development. [Media Bistro]

The new restaurant was a big hit. All of Gary’s Facebook friends showed up to the grand opening.
The complete lack of shadows the GA neglected to add to this fabricated queue of “customers” is but one glaring giveaway of this disaster. What I can’t decide is if each person is a separate layer, or if the entire lineup was lifted.
Thanks Kevin. You can see the original on the Silly Monkeys site.
Gennady “The Grabber” Voynovitch, the infamous pickpocket, was granted a brief release from prison today to attend the funeral of his sister, Irina, who was laid to rest wearing her mother’s priceless pearl earrings.
Yes, Thing has made yet another appearance on PSD, probably as the severed hand of a prison guard. For clearly this prisoner did not get released from jail to attend this funeral, and it was only some Borat-type flunkie ordered to make it appear as if Fearless Leader had bestowed an act of kindness upon this poor man. Must be a fixed election on the horizon.
Thanks Kasia. You can see the original on the USA SE site.
One of the better-selling novelties at The CNN Store in Atlanta is the “Dana Bash” bobblehead doll.
That girl’s head definitely looks pasted on to me, but then what’s up with the body, as well? The entire image looks like a screenshot from “Team Fortress 3: Morgan-Stanley Mayhem.” The ever-popular sniper character has been replaced by this chick: The Forecloser.
Thanks Kathy. You can see the original Lake Forest site.
Besides the obvious, another advantage of the holographic baby is qualifying for the carpool lane.
Either this baby is imprisoned inside a Magic 8 Ball, or the GA needs some remedial training in basic Photoshop skills. Utilizing feathering or the blur tool to define a sharp edge reveals a need for both classes as well as glasses.
Thanks Marcelo for the find. The original was found in a baby store in Orlando.
