Photoshop Disasters Web Site

For those of you with a bit of time on your hands (or want to check out just how bad some people’s Photoshop skills are), check out PhotoshopDisasters.com.

Here you’ll find some really shoddy Photoshop work. So bad in fact that it’s really rather amusing…such as this Hungarian ad for Red Bull.

Red Bull: Gives You Nightmares

Comment: Red Bull in Hungary makes you wish you had never seen this image. Scrubbing your eyeballs doesn’t work, I tried.

EEEK!

Most of the posts seem to have been made by Cosmo7…but aside from a web mail form, there’s really no way to know who’s behind the site. The main intro says: “Have you seen a truly awful piece of Photoshop work? Clumsy manipulation, senseless comping, lazy cloning and thoughtless retouching are our bread and butter. And yes, deep down, we love Photoshop.

Here’s another unforgivable disaster…

Zoo: Adolf Hitler Is A Babe And She’s Melting

Comment: Gemma Atkinson gets some rough treatment from this tawdry babeblog. It looks like her right hand is a flip of the left, or would have been if the artist hadn’t quietly given up. I have no idea what they were trying to remove, but the unfortunate shadow under her nose suggests a whiff of the third reich.

I guess there’s still room for schlock in the marketplace, but it would be useful for some of these “professionals” to take a Photoshop class…

    I think the first one with the big mouse might be a deliberate exaggeration as this ad is supposed to be funny. The text is slang in Hungarian and is about a movie festival on movie endings, happy ending and other endings. This kind of advertising is very common in Hungary when targeting young audience. (I am Hungarian, living in Hungary.)
