Unlike some of the others on this list, he did not feel the need to turn himself into a cartoon cyborg. He did however get rather experimental with some basic Photoshop tools and treated his photo to a virtual visit to the dentist as we can tell from his glaring teeth.
He could have almost had us fooled, perhaps with a little more skill, this dude could have created the illusion of real sparkling white teeth. Instead, he just brightened the heck out of his teeth, almost to the point that it looks like he was hiding a flashlight in his mouth.
Then and Now
Aging is a funny thing, one day you're 12, living your life without a care in the world. The next minute you look in the mirror and you're 30! Yikes! It just creeps up on you. Luckily, with photo manipulation, for the first time ever, aging might be the new way to reverse the clock, without the hefty price of cosmetic surgery.
This woman proved to us that's totally possible and actually took us on a journey through time, to the day she was 12 years old again. And yes, just to confirm, this is not her and a picture of her two daughters, this is just the same woman going crazy with filters.
This woman wanted to root for her favorite football team on Instagram, of course, she also decided to use the platform to do a little tweaking to her face, you know, to show us how much of a sports fan she truly is. How she's getting her point across? We don't know.
Seriously though, we all like a pair of expressive eyes but this edit is totally unnecessary. I'm starting to think there's a secret underground society of crazed ice queens that is starting to take over. If that were true, it would seem they prefer infiltrating girl-next-door sports fans' Instagram accounts.
A Chiseled Jawline
The odd skin blemish can put a real damper on a nice photoshoot, and perhaps you just need to spruce things up a little. It's totally reasonable. A touch-up here, smooth things a little there, and reshape your entire beard so that you look like a Lego figurine. You know, the usual.
We get it, sometimes you just want to look your best in photographs! But, this retouching job is seriously bad and the 'artist' managed to take a perfectly human face and turn it into an actual cartoon character. It looks like someone just drew his beard on with a Sharpie.
With Instagram and all the other social media innovations, we have reached a brave new digital world that our ancestors could never have imagined. And with that comes digital altering that can alter literally anything. From our wrinkles and fine lines, even to our hair, our waistlines, heck, even our eyesight.
This woman decided it wasn't enough to simply remove her glasses for the photo. Since she was already "getting some work done" she might as well drop those pesky spectacles. She also looks 20 years younger, but at least she still looks like herself! It's almost as if she went on an extreme makeover show and this is the result.
