There are so many apps available today that help people edit their photos. Some people use them to enhance the colors or fix details, while others use them to change their appearance completely. There is pressure with social media to look a certain way, and some people take it to the extreme. We found hilariously ridiculous edited Instagram photos that you won't believe people posted.
1. Her Reflection Speaks The Truth
This girl wanted to show off this dress she tried on. She posted this picture and people noticed that her reflection looked much different than her body.
She forgot to take note that people would see her reflection. She looked good in the dress in the unedited part, so we don't know why she had to change it.
2. Why Clothes Look So Perfect On Instagram Models
Have you ever seen clothing in an advertisement, and then you go to try it on, and it looks completely different on you?
Well, models usually have the clothing pinned onto them like this, so the garment fits them perfectly when it is photographed.
3. Something Happened To The Tennis Court
We don't know why she thought this looked realistic, but no one is believing that this is a natural photo.
You can see all the lines on the tennis court are wonky, and no one naturally looks like this. We are sure she was beautiful before the editing.
4. She Drew On A Fake Piercing
Have you ever wanted to get a piercing but you didn't know if it would look good on you? This girl found the perfect solution.
She drew on a fake piercing with an app, and now she knows what she would look like with a lip stud.
5. Her Face Is Used To Study Triginometry
Her chin is so sharp; it could be used to cut someone. This picture has been strongly edited so that her face looks extremely angular.
No matter what face shape you have, you are beautiful and do not need to edit it into a triangle.
6. Is She A Light Bender?
She must have some special powers because she is able to bend light rays. The laws of physics don't apply to Instagram posts.
She must have made an adjustment to her nose and didn't realize that the ray of light wouldn't look natural once it was bent.
7. You Move Too Fast And The Snapchat Filter Stops Working
Have you ever tried a Snapchat filter and you move too fast so it disappears? This is what happened to this woman.
She looks unrecognizable compared to the unfiltered picture, and it is too edited.
8. What Happened To These People?
We don't know what this couple looked like before they edited the photo, but it has to be better than the final result.
They look like they are cosplaying the corpse bride wearing matching Gucci with her husband. It is beyond fake.
9. One Must Have Lost Some Air
This girl is known for editing her chest for her Instagram photos, and in this post, she forgot to edit one side.
The right side has been enlarged while the other side looks much smaller in comparison.
10. Pictures You Post Vs Pictures People Tag You In
This is the boy who went viral for licking a public toilet seat and calling it the "coronavirus challenge," and then he tested positive for the virus. He was interviewed on TV and people saw what he looks like without editing.
It is going to be hard for him to post these overly edited pictures now that everyone knows what he looks like without a filter.
11. Look At The Reflection In His Sunglasses
If you look at the reflection in the sunglasses, you will notice that they do not match the surroundings of this photo. It is a reflection of someone taking a selfie in their car.
This man must have photoshopped his head onto someone else's body and pretended it was him. He forgot to make sure all the details were fixed.
12. One Tiny Hand, One Monster Hand
She must favor one of her arms because it looks much bigger and stronger than the other one.
We are sure this was not how she wanted the photo to look, but she also wanted to appear extra skinny, and her arms were sacrificed.
13. Objects In The Mirror Are Curvier Than They Appear
We are not sure if she edited the reflection or her actual body. It appears that she made her butt bigger in the reflection, but not on her actual body.
She looks beautiful either way, so why go through the trouble of editing it so much.
14. That Cannot Be The Same Person
On the left side, you can see the pictures this woman posted on Instagram. The right side is photos of her on TV. She looks like two different people.
A filter, smoothing, and good lighting can change your appearance drastically.
15. Those Are The Whitest Eyeballs
We know that makeup can do wonders to change a person's appearance, but that is not the problem here. The problem is that we have never seen an eyeball as white and bright as her edited picture.
It is almost blinding because of how bright it is. Also, your eyes naturally have visible veins, so what happened to hers?
16. The Camera Adds 10 Pounds And Photoshop Takes Away 15
This girl is gorgeous and looks stunning in the unedited picture, but she posted the other overly edited photo where she looks much skinnier.
People should be promoting confidence with your natural curves instead of feeling like everyone has to look a certain way.
17. Forget Catfishing, He Is Blackfishing
Have you ever seen someone online and then you meet them in person and they look nothing like their photos? Well, people must be shocked when they meet this guy.
We are not sure what he really looks like but it is bizarre and sending a bad message to his followers.
18. Where Do Her Organs Go?
The longer you look at this, the more ridiculous it seems. It looks like she is trying the paper waist challenge to make her look as small as possible.
It is incredible how her pants are staying on if this is her natural body, but we think there was definitely some editing.
19. Seems Legit
Her butt is so big it bends space, time, and reality. The problem here is that shadows never lie, and the wonky wood was a giveaway that it was edited.
We doubt anyone believed that this was real.
20. Someone Caught The Real Picture
When you post a picture that seems like it could be real, then someone exposes you by posting what you really look like.
Someone did a great job editing her to look real, but she looks much different in reality.
21. Green Screen At It's Finest
Those train tracks seem legit, and we didn't know it could snow inside of a car.
So many influencers will do whatever they can to get as many likes as possible on a photo. There are so many things that are obviously fake in this picture.
22. They Are Apparently The Same Person
People are supposed to believe that these two pictures are the same person. The black and white photo looks like he photoshopped someone else's face onto his body, and then photoshopped his body.
This could be a real photo of him from 20 years ago, but it is definitely not the same person in the same year.
23. Unlike Shakira, Her Hips Do Lie
Her proportions in this photo are impossible, and an unrealistic standard. We cannot tell how she edited it, but it cannot be real.
It is hard to be confident with the social media influences of today, but as a mother, she should be teaching her daughter body positivity instead of photoshop.
24. Photoshopping A Mugshot Is The New Trend
Have you ever heard of someone photoshopping their mugshot? We don't know many people who would publicly post their mugshots either.
She thought it would be appropriate to smooth out her skin and brighten her eyes to make this photo look better.
25. What She Posted Vs. What The Photographer Posted
It must be awkward when you post a photo, and it looks one way, and then the photographer posts the same shot, and you look totally different.
In her photo, she changed her face so she doesn't look like herself, but the other picture is still pretty even without the editing.
26. Hair Editing Is Also A Trend
This woman has been called out on social media for editing her hair. In the left photo, she edited it to make it look like she has waves.
In another shot, she added bangs and changed the color. Don't you wonder what her real hair looks like?
27. It's The Real Ken Doll
This man posted this picture, but only edited himself, and made it look far from natural. He added sparkle to his sleeve, whitened his teeth, and smoothed his face.
He looks more like a plastic doll than a real person now. It is kind of frightening.
28. "Remove All My Pores"
Apparently, having any kind of texture on your face is wrong and should be smoothed out. No one should appear to have pores or blemishes ever.
In reality, no one has skin that is perfectly smooth because we all have pores and blemishes, and that is part of life.
29. She Aged A Few Years In The Right Photo
The left picture is the one she posted on Facebook, so her friends on Facebook think she looks not a day over 40.
In reality, she is 71 and should be proud of how good she looks in the unedited photo for her age. Everyone ages, it is not a big secret.
30. Something Is Wrong With The Door Frame
The Kardashian/Jenner clan are always being called out for editing their photos. In this photo that Kylie Jenner posted, her fans noticed the door frame was slightly bent.
People are like detectives when it comes to finding the editing fails with Jenner's photos.
31. Animations Or Real People
Have you ever wanted to know what you would look like as a Barbie doll? These girls have edited their faces so much that it looks like they photoshopped Barbie's face onto theirs.
They were probably gorgeous before they did all this editing, and now they look fake.
32. When Your Feet Are Bigger Than Your Waist
We have never met anyone who has bigger feet than their waist. She doesn't even look like a real person after all the editing she has done.
We are sure she looked perfectly normal before she made so many changes to the picture.
33. Facetuned To The Max
When you want to be a Bratz doll so bad that you edit all your photos to look like one. This is way too much facetune and editing.
She even changed the color of her eyes in the photos which make it look so unnatural.
34. The Restoration Of This Painting Revealed The Truth Behind It
It is hard to believe, but even in the 1500s, people were editing pictures of themselves. In this case, there was a portrait of Isabella De' Medici, and after many centuries, it was restored.
When the artists were restoring this painting, they realized someone had painted over the original to make her look more beautiful. The before photo is what it looked like when they painted over the original, and the after is revealing what she actually looked like before it was painted over.
35. Armpit Remover
This deodorant is so powerful, it appears to remove your armpits or any indication that you have an armpit!
We understand that armpits aren't the most flattering body part, but everyone has them, and they are not this smooth.
36. Instagram Vs. Reality
Did somebody say catfish? This man posted one picture on Instagram with filters, skin smoothing, and eye-brightening.
When people saw him on TV they couldn't believe he was the same person who posted on Instagram.
37. Something Is Wrong With Those Stairs
When you see that the stairs have been stretched and deformed in a picture, you can tell a person edited their body. In this photo, there are other clues as well.
We would like to remind everyone that there is no need to make yourself look like this because everyone is beautiful the way they are.
38. Tagged Vs. Personal Instagram Post
When someone else posts a picture of you on Instagram, you usually cannot control the editing. This girl took the photo that someone posted of her and edited it to look much different.
She gave herself a smaller waist, larger eyes, and a thinner face. She doesn't even look like herself anymore.
39. It Looks More Like A Painting Than Real Life
This picture looks more animated than real. She has smoothed out her skin so much that it looks computer-generated.
At this point, no one is going to believe people look like this, and it is better to be real and post unedited photos.
40. Queen Of The Catfish
This woman is the queen of editing her pictures to make herself look like a different person.
She went from being a soccer mom to her daughter in college. We don't know how she did it, but she must be a wizard.
