52 Worst Photoshop Mistakes In Magazines

By Dibakar Jana. Filed in Inspiration

We love Photoshop because it’s one of the most useful photo-editing applications for both web and print designs. With some fair amount of knowledge, you can manipulate any photo and turn them into anything you want. Few of our previous articles (human photo manipulation, animal photo manipulation) are great examples of what Photoshop is capable of.

However when Photoshop falls in the hand of careless designers, poor jobs are created. Obvious flaws are missed and when designs are printed it leads to laughter and sometimes embarrassments. In today’s article, we’d like to show you the worst of Photoshop flaws in magazines, things that slipped editors’ eyes. The next time you flipped through a magazine, take a closer look, you might spot one if you are lucky.
