Here Are All The Times Celebrities Apparently Photoshopped Their Instagram Photos In 2014

You're better than this, ladies.

1. Kim Kardashian kicked the year off by sharing these two photos after a work out session with a friend.

But look at the door frame. It has a very obvious curve. Distortions like this are commonplace in digitally re-touched images and are usually the give-away that Photoshop or something similar has been used.

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

There are several suspicious things happening in the second image.

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. And the outline of Kim’s perfectly flat stomach is also blurred.


2. Here's Kim Kardashian hanging out with her friend Jonathan on a yacht. But on closer inspection, it appears that half her arm is missing.

3. There are also a couple of images on her Instagram account which don't have any visible distortions, but comparing them with paparazzi photos from the same day is pretty interesting. Take this photo, for example.

4. Then there's this image which she posted on her Instagram before going out...

5. There was also this "throwback" photo that she shared, where she reminisced about her "skinny days".

Kim’s breast and nose have been reshaped, her waist pulled in, her arm ever so slightly slimmed down and a bruise on her leg removed. Weirdly, the zip down the back of her dress has been removed too.

What's unclear is whether Kim altered the image herself or whether she just grabbed an edited version from the internet.


However, within minutes that image was deleted and replaced with this one.

In the original photo, there’s a fuzzy outline around Kylie’s body which fans immediately suggested was the result of Photoshop or a photo editing app.

Fans were also quick to say that Kylie deleting the first image so quickly suggested she’d uploaded it by accident, and had only meant to post the second edited version.

7. It's not just the Kardashians who have been accused of Photoshopping their Instagram photos. Miranda Kerr has, too. Here she is at a red carpet event, wearing a dress with cut-away sides.

9. A few months later this photo surfaced on her Instagram. But both the wine glass and the phone in the image appear distorted.

But if you look closely at the curtains in the background, you'll see that the lines appear to bend inwardly towards her hips in the way they would if her hips had been slimmed down digitally.
