Photoshop at Uncyclopedia

According to Uncyclopedia, Photoshop is a verb to describe the action of modifying an image with computer software, usually MS Paint.

Photoshop can be used to make very convincing modifications to photographs. In this example, several team members have been removed. See if you can guess which ones!

Ok, it’s not real, but it is funny. In a parody of Wikipedia’s Photoshop entry, Uncyclopedia has it’s own “Photoshop” entry explaining just what Photoshop is with tongue in cheek explanations of what people do with it.

From the parody page:

“What Photoshop can be used for:
Photoshop or as they want you to call it, Adobe® Photoshop® Image® Enhancement® Creation® Software® Version 6.®0®, can be very useful to create all kinds of cool and dumb pictures. A person unskilled in the photomanipulative arts can now show works displaying his unskilledness in an embarrasingly crappy manner.”

I personally enjoy the special note:

“Adobe® and Photoshop® are either registered trademarks or trademarks of ®Photoshop® Company® Inc®orporated® in Nigeria*, Finland® and/or other countries. Violation of this trademark may result in personal injury, death, and/or nothing at all—thus, the activity is often practiced as a form of high-stakes gambling, much like Slovakian roulette. Say photoshop and you will go to jail.”
