PHOTOSHOP DISASTERS GREATEST HITS
- Adding rough borders to cutouts
- Making people look as though they are an assemblage of pasted parts
- Shadows solve everything
- Necks are unimportant
- It is photorealistic if you close your eyes

Thanks to Brit!
Foreshortening can be a tricky thing to get right. One minute your image is bursting out of the frame, the next you seem to have assembled a cast of deformed mutants. The strange thing is that the picture above is in order, from right to left: OK; a bit dodgy; a lot dodgy; freakish.

Thanks to Will!

PS Grunt: Ha ha, as if.
Thanks to Mike G.
