Everyone loves to look at celebrities. But a lot of people also like to see what they REALLY look like. You know what I mean…without all of the make up, the fancy clothes and jewelry, and most importantly, without Photoshop.

That program can be given credit for the success of countless celeb's photographs over the years. Since it came out, it has changed the appearance of countless stars all over the world. It can take an okay face and turn it into a glamour shot. Another popular use for it is taking the weight off. You know what I'm talking about. A picture has a few more rolls than a star wants the world to see…no problem, we'll just Photoshop it!

The program itself is really quite amazing. You can add muscles or even take them away. Who needs to pay thousands of dollars on a boob job when Photoshop will take care of it for them? Now of course you run into the problem of that you might actually need to leave the house at some point. That could pose an issue with your adjusted appearance.

So let's take a look at some of photoshop's best work and what it hid from us!

#1. Demi Moore

Demi Moore is a beautiful woman and has been for a long time. But sometimes she doesn’t always have a great day. No different than any of us. This is what Photoshop did for her.

#2. Cindy Crawford

Cindy Crawford got in an amazing work out in the time between when this photo was taken and when it was printed. Look at those abs! I think the machine she used was 30 second abs!

#3. Keira Knightley

Here you can see a perfect example of one of the most widely used features of the program. No breasts on the left, breasts on the right. If it was only that easy in real life, right?

#6. Katy Perry

Here you can see Katy Perry wearing a better make up job in the final result than when the photo was taken. Photoshop is also used to fix up covers of magazines. The program has so many uses that it’s hard to remember what we did before it.

#7. Candice Huffine

Candice Huffine isn’t always the medium sized beauty that we see in photos. Here you can see that she clearly didn’t miss any meals a few days before the photo shoot. But it’s not a problem at all. Photoshop fixes all!

#8. Madonna

This is another example of a great make up job by the program. Madonna has some pretty clear blemishes on her face in the before picture, but they are completely gone in the final result.

#9. Don't like your shape? No worries!

If you think that you look top heavy, or even bottom heavy in a photograph, just Photoshop it! It’s like duct tape, it fixes everything! Oh and it works on hair too as you can see here.

#12. Fergie

Fergie doesn’t really look all that bad here. But she looks even better with a little help from Photoshop. A little brighter background and a little bit lighter on the skin tone and whalah!


#13. Madonna

Age gets the best of all of us. But thanks to Photoshop the world doesn’t really need to know. Here is Madonna again showing you what can be done.

#14. Kim Kardashian

You don’t really think there are any photos floating around of the Kardashian’s that haven’t been touched up do you? Well they may get released but not because the family approved it. Here you can see Kim clearly touched up in the mid section.

#18. Johnny Depp

Photoshop can not only fix some short comings in photos, it can also completely alter the look of something or someone. If you know what you are doing the things that can be done are endless. Here is a good example with Johnny Depp.

#19. Ryan Seacrest

Ryan Seacrest is one of those guys that never met a camera that he didn’t like. He will talk to anyone that wants to listen and let anyone take pictures that wants to. But it doesn’t always work to his advantage. That is until Photoshop comes into the equation!

#20. Britney Spears

Sometimes you may find it hard to see the difference. Here is a great example of Britney Spears in an altered photo. From this point forth anytime that you see a great picture of a celebrity you have to wonder…Photoshop or not?
