PhotoShop Disasters

May 20th, 2008 | Posted in General

Still under the gun with work before the big Reubens trip, but rather than post the Dreaded Deadline Demon I thought I’d share a link to a website I recently discovered that is both a lot of fun and very sad at the same time.

PhotoShop Disasters is a website that’s a little like Jay Leno‘s “Stupid Headlines” skits on “The Tonight Show“… except funny. Contributors send in bad PhotoShop jobs and the authors poke fun at the results. Here’s one from a recent post at PsD:

Ooops. One too many hands! That guys must have trouble with “hand” penalties.

There are many examples, some subtle enough you have to look for them and some so horrible you wonder how in the world some of these people got jobs. Sure, there are thousands of community art colleges out there cranking out tens of thousands of graduates with degrees in “graphic design”, but are there really people out there putting together print ads where they forget to place both legs on a model?:

These are fun to laugh at, although I would be lying if I said I hadn’t screwed up a few illustrations in my time with dumb mistakes… including recently where I literally gave one of the figures in a poster image two left feet. D’OH!

    Not unless he’s perfectly ducked down behind the two players. No, there was a third person in there but they took out his head from between the other two, and forgot to remove his hand.
