Is there really an international beauty standard? This is what Esther Honig, a 24-year-old radio journalist in Kansas City, Missouri seek to find out about how people around the globe define female beauty. She started by sending her self-portrait to a designer in Sri Lanka with the simple request, ‘Hi, my name is Esther Honig. Make me look beautiful’.
So, this photo series was soooo cute until I started realizing how creepy it really is. Some guy has photoshopped himself into all his girlfriend’s childhood photos. Ok, so that’s cute. Romantic even. But he’s placed himself as a grown up into these images, while his girlfriend (at the time) was obviously a child. Some […]

We all know the sad truth about the role Photoshop plays in shaping our unrealistic standards of beauty. What’s sadder is we turn a blind eye towards this awful reality. But after watching this shocking video of a Photoshop process in reverse, you’ll be saying to yourself, ‘Photoshop has gone too far’.
‘Woof woof’, said the bird perched on a tree branch just outside your window. And you have just entered The Twilight Zone. The Photoshop masters of the internet have brought us realistic photos of Dirds, birds with the heads of dogs. Now, all we need are Pokemon names for the different breeds of Dirds. Pugeon, […]
This is self-explanatory: guys posing next to imaginary girlfriends, made possible with that magical software of all, Photoshop. We don’t know whether to laugh more at their blatant non-display of mad Photoshop skills or, well, pretty much everything about the pictures. Probably both.
Fascinated with both painting and photography from a young age, it was only a matter of time before Michal Karcz would combine both techniques with digital art. His gorgeous images of parallel universes are breathtaking and mind-bending. The Polish artist has a knack for transporting viewers to landscapes that don’t actually exist outside of his imagination. But he does it in […]
Remember these weird hybrid animals by Gyyp? We’ve found more of these mind-bending chimeras online, thanks to Reddit member Arne Olav’s irreverent mashups of animals, such as a killer whale penguin, hare mare and bulldog falcon.
What would you do if you woke up and your whole bedroom has become an aquarium? And what would you think if, while you’re watching a movie with your partner, you suddenly found yourself surrounded by squirrels?

Do you have trouble making yourself appreciate classic art? Then these photoshopped paintings of modern celebrities are a great way to slowly ease yourself into something more classy.

You can’t change the past. Or can you? Photoshop wizard Flóra Borsi has been doing for a while. Using humour and quick wit, the 19 year-old Hungarian artist puts a spin on famous black and white photographs. What would happen if Elvis Presley’s fans all had cell phones at his concerts? Well, take a look at Borsi […]
Artist Gyyp likes to blend different species. That’s it. He uses all his Photoshop skills to create unexpected combinations like Slawk, Killer Penguin, Heagle and so on. Some species are actually cute, like the Guinea Bear. But most of his stuff is just plain weird.
I was made aware of Jeremy Wong’s playful approach to Life Buoy Soap’s You Eat What You Touch advertising campaign recently. The pug loaf in particular made me smile. His other work is definitely worth a look, too.
Budapest-based photographer Flora Borsi wondered what Photoshop would look like in real life, so she made a bunch of manipulated photos — what else? — parodying photoediting tweaks such as the patch tool and hue/saturation presets. These are way fun.
