In this age of social media, looks can be very deceiving. It’s easy to look nothing like your real self when posting photos on social media platforms, like Instagram in particular. The app features different filters that alter the contrast and color balance to make your face Instagram-worthy. Most of the time, users manage to look good in their body shots by mastering the art of getting good angles.
But for one Weibo netizen, Kanahoooo, looking perfect for social media can be achieved through insane Photoshopping skills. Somehow, Kanahoooo’s work is clearly shocking that the girls on the Before photos do not resemble the girls in After photos — except maybe for the dress and the background. But if you know nothing and you happen to see the photos, you’ll surely be deceived by these Chinese girls.
#1. Weibo user Kanahoooo is famous in the Chinese social network.
#2. He has been given the nickname “Photoshop Holy,” according to MSN.
#3. Kanahoooo’s day job is actually manipulating photos so people would look “shiny.”
#4. Image editors usually trash the files once they’re done with them…
#5. For Kanahoooo, though, saving the files after editing has become a habit.
#6. Kanahoooo has a reason for sharing shocking before and after photos of Chinese girls.
#7. He warns everyone not to believe all the pretty photos you see on social media.
#8. Apparently, some people on dating sites would manipulate their profile photos so they look more attractive.
#9. Kanahoooo advises people to see their dates in person if they want to know how they really look like.
#10. He not only alters women’s faces…
#11. But also turns this guy into a woman!
#12. He can even turn ladyboys really pretty.
#13. Kanahoooo does all that by using color correction, eye correction and the like.
#14. If you’d look at this girl with the Before photo, it would be hard for you to believe she is the same person.
#15. Not only does he work on making pretty faces, he can also make someone appear slimmer.
#16. Basically, he’s a wizard-level photo editor.
#17. It’s easy to fool people these days.
#18. If an image editor is not available, several apps can do the same thing.
#19. People would do anything these days to achieve that “perfect look.”
#20. Just to get likes and more followers on social media.
#21. Even this cat has been given a digital makeover.
Would you rather have people praise and like you for your manipulated photos or be accepted for showing your true self? Leave a comment below!
18 Least Helpful But Most Hilarious Police Sketches You’ll Ever See
Imagine the police’s reaction when they see these sketches.
One can only imagine the pure talent a composite sketch artist has. Just think about how these artists can amazingly recreate a person – the criminal – through details provided by the eyewitnesses. That said, a good quality facial composite is important to help track down a perpetrator and hopefully solve the crime.
However, there are times that things could go wrong and the sketch ends up looking less like a human. It's also in the way an eyewitness conveys the information. In that case, if the details were not properly explained, the sketch will turn out to be a disaster and the artist can’t really do much in helping solve a crime. The sketches you’ll see below are the least helpful - but totally hilarious -- you would wonder where the police got them.
#1. One would wonder if he approved of that sketch.
30 Hilarious Photo Edits By Korean Photoshop Trolls
#4 and #21 made my day!
If you have ever seen the work of James Fridman, you’d be fully aware by now that asking for free Photoshop help over the internet isn’t exactly the wisest of ideas. This photo editor trolls people who make free requests and churns out insanely hilarious results.
Well apparently, Fridman’s kind has multiplied on the web as several Korean guys are following his footsteps. One Facebook page called We Do Phosop (yes, you read it right – that’s not a typo) offers free Photoshop editing help for interested individuals. The catch, however, is that they’d either take your requests literally or just simply give them a funny spin.
Check out some samples of their work below and prepare to have a hearty laugh!...
The Euthanasia Rollercoaster Was Designed to Propel Its Passengers to the Afterlife
The extreme ride is supposed to propel riders to the afterlife “humanely with euphoria and pleasure.”
Many of us fear death while others seem to chase it consciously. Thrill-seekers and daredevils, with their thirst for risk and adventure, oftentimes put their lives in grave danger. Indeed, danger can induce euphoria for some.
One Lithuanian engineer named Julijonas Urbonas probably had this in mind when he designed the Euthanasia Coaster, a rollercoaster meant to literally kill its passengers. Now, the killer ride has not been made, and there are currently no plans of actually build it.
