70 Worst Photoshop Mistakes In Magazines And Advertisements

In this day and age, who doesn’t love Photoshop? With it you can manipulate any picture you want, however you want. Add in, remove, trim a bit here and there; if you know how to use Photoshop, you know how to truly edit a photo. So it’s no surprise that it’s considered the Swiss Army Knife for designers, letting them chop away at any flaws.

However, just with any tool, you need to be trained or you could end up with a blunder. Even the professionals sometimes don’t notice the mistakes they make, and it is especially funny to find a Photoshop error in a high end magazine. This list is the sequel of our previous worst Photoshop mistakes and this time we’ve featured other ads as well. You might find this hard to believe but we have 70 of them.
