Are These Celebrities Photoshopping Their Instagram Photos?

Photoshop? Phone app? Nothing at all? You decide.

So Kim Kardashian has been posing for selfies again.

Recently she shared this photo of herself. You'll probably agree that she looks incredible.

And we all know how hard she's been working to lose her 'baby weight,' because she mentions it in approximately 92% of the sentences she says.

The only slight issue is that when she went out later that day, her figure looked different.


It was almost as though her hips had been trimmed down a bit* in the original selfie.

*And yes, that is a technical term.


It's not the first time suspicious things have gone on in Kim's Instagram photos. Remember the time she posted this photo after a work out?

Everyone was like, 'Wow, she looks amazing'. Until some Photoshop wizard was like, 'No, look at the door frame...'

Now, we're not architectural experts or anything, but door frames don't tend to be curved like they are here.

The distortion also occurs around Kim's torso, which usually happens when waistlines are digitally altered.

And as for the other picture, there's quite a few things going on.

For starters, the curvature of the door is completely different to the first photo.

The floor is also wobbly, following the exact shape of Kim's waist and hips.

The outline of Kim's perfectly flat stomach is also blurred.

We contacted Kim's representative who denied that Photoshop was used to edit the photos.


And here's where you should be looking.

The drawers in the background are visibly curved, with even the bottle of wine following the shape.

The side of the table is also curved.

But hey, Peaches may just enjoy wobbly furniture.


She had an explanation for this one...

"Hi guys, here is the original VS image! When I re-posted the photo this week to support the girls I screen grabbed it off the internet when I was working in Japan. I had no idea it was photoshopped. All good intentions- sorry for the confusion and congratulations to the girls for such a great show! <3 "


But what about this one of her posing in a hotel corridor?

Miranda Kerr also shared this photo of her at a showbiz bash, showing off her stomach in a cut-away dress.

However, this original photo from the event is slightly different.

Not only does her waist look slimmer, but Miranda's hand looks like it could've been caught up in the editing, with it appearing bigger and a different shape.


TV presenter, Donnatella seemed to be taking a leaf out of Kim Kardashian's book with this post-work out photo.

And finally, Britney Spears' Instagram followers were quick to accuse her of Photoshopping this snap.

Why? Because they suggested she'd 'drawn on her abs'.

Whether this is just a clever spray tan rather than Photoshop will probably never be confirmed as Britney hasn't responded to the comments.

We reached out to Britney Spears' representative who didn't comment.
