Over the years, Psdisasters.com has fearlessly called out industry giants such as Ralph Lauren, Victoria’s Secret, Gucci, Vogue, and more for their flagrant misuse of Photoshop. With numerous lawsuits, angry emails, and rants from famous models and photographers, Psdisasters still continues to follow their mission; point out everything unrealistic, physically impossible, and just plain strange-looking in today’s advertising.
Just like grammar Nazi’s, people who believe proper grammar and spelling should be used by everyone whenever possible, there are graphic designers, photographers, and photo editors who solely focus on bad photo editing. For them, bad adverts stick out like a sore thumb.
Everybody makes mistakes. We’re supposed to learn from our wrongs, right? Well, when money and reputation are both on the line, the cute “we all make mistakes” excuse doesn’t cut it.
Today we collected 40 entertaining Photoshop mistakes for you to enjoy. While we don’t really know the background story of each advert, one thing for sure is that the teams or departments behind these mishaps need to take a class on quality control. So without further ado, we invite you to come along and enjoy the overuse and abuse of Photoshop in the advertising industry. Enjoy!
