This may not rank among the worst examples of Photoshop ever assembled, but that says more about those examples than it does this particular case.

Fella Swim's retouched photos featuring Australian model Meaghan Kausman did not sit well with Meghan herself. Kausman posted this photo on Instagram:

Meaghan Kausman Pics

Kausman is not missing a limb or anything like that, but the side by side comparison - one pic prior to editing and one from after - is still striking.

Not only was her stomach slimmed down, the rest of her body appears retouched, too. The most important part of her post, however, is its caption.

The model condemns the obvious editing as evidenced here, labeling it as "shocking", adding, "my body is a size 8, not a size 4. That’s my body!"

She goes on, incredulously, to state, "I refuse to stand by and allow ANY company or person to perpetuate the belief that 'thinner is better.' EVER!"

When it comes to beauty and body image, no one is as heavily to blame for society's unrealistic standards as the fashion and modeling industries and those who wield the almighty Photoshop tools.

(And Barbie, but that's another story...)

One thing's for sure when it comes to Photoshop: NO ONE IS SAFE. Not even our BFF Jennifer Lawrence! NOT EVEN BABIES! Yes, this goes beyond glossy magazines.

Even adorable, cute, amazing, giggling little babies who just want to drool on their bibs and chew their feet aren't off limits from advertisers. Case in point:

Fisher-Price Baby Photo
That baby's head and body can't be from the same person, can they?

That baby is actually TWO babies. WHAT THE WHAT?

From shaving off women's inner legs to create a thigh gap to jacking with Kate Upton's armpit to adding clothes to kids in the yearbook, maybe, just maybe, it's time to put down the e-paintbrush.

Let's just be real. Yes, even you, Kim Kardashian.

Lolita Richi, the latest Human Barbie, says she is the only REAL Human Barbie.

Allow her to explain. You see, the latest human aspiring to emulate a plastic toy's rendering of beauty says that her striking appearance is all-natural.

The irony is thick, as no "natural" teen strives to be a doll. But Lolita Richi says that unlike other hopefuls, she can reach this pinnacle with no surgery!

Lolita Richi: Teen Barbie

The Ukrainian-born Lolita wears a 32F bra, has a 20-inch waist, and besides not having surgery to achieve her look, says she doesn't even diet.

“I have a naturally gorgeous figure so I don’t even have to diet,” the 16-year-old Richi tells the Daily Mail, apparently not lacking for self-confidence here.

The 5’4'' teen went on to diss Valeria Lukyanova, her fellow Ukrainian who laid claim to the Human Barbie title last year, because she's like SO FAKE!

We're not exactly sure who decided to photoshop the teeth out of celebrity mouths or why, but this is a thing that exists on the Internet. For better or for worse.

The pictures are frightening and funny, sometimes simultaneously.

In some cases, it feels like we're getting a glimpse of what would happen if these celebrities had to age without the benefit of cosmetic dental implants to ensure their teeth are obnoxiously white while their skin shrivels and their hair fades to gray.

In others, well, we're horrified. You probably will be too.

So here's a look at what 19 celebrities would look like without teeth. Now if you'll excuse us we'll be brushing and flossing so this never, ever happens to us:

Anne Hathaway
Scale of 1 to OMG, Anne Hathaway with no teeth is OMGOMGOMG.

Often been criticized for her reliance on Photoshop (and lip-syncing), Britney Spears to took to Instagram on Wednesday to show us what the real deal looks like.

Spoiler alert: It looks rather amazing:

Britney Spears in Her Underwear

The image above comes from photographer Jeff Lipsky, and features the singer displaying her washboard abs in a long sleeve crop top and black panties.

Unretouched, it would appear.

Wow. If Spears' lingerie ads have been photoshopped to flatten her stomach, there's not too much work to do (though there's also the Britney laser fat removal rumor).

Spears captioned the photo:

"Amazing amazing shoot with @jefflipsky today! Been working hard this summer! So ready to bring it for the next round of #PieceOfMe shows next week."

The piece of her she's shown us here is worth another look. No wonder she's set to earn $12 million for an extension of her Planet Hollywood shows in Vegas.

The ads for Britney Spears' lingerie line that hit the web last week showed the pop star looking more trim and toned than she has in years.

But while Brit's clearly been working out, and may even be benefiting from laser fat removal treatments, an expert in digital photo editing says the lingerie ads were still altered to flatten Brit's midsection.

  • Britney Spears Lingerie

"They've been retouched," says Giles Fabris, CEO of LookingBetterOnline, adding that Photoshopping on pics as revealing as Brits has become "the industry standard."

"While Britney Spears is obviously naturally a beautiful woman, when it comes to modeling, most modeling shots are retouched," Fabris says. "It creates an image that often is realistically impossible for women to attain."

Toronto native Cassandra Blackwel developed an interesting strategy for getting over her ex-boyfriend: photoshopping pictures of Beyonce over his face!

In starting her Beyoncify My Boyfriend project (and Tumblr page), she said, “If imagining yourself at your happiest with Beyonce doesn’t help, I don’t know what will.”

No arguments here.

And yes, she knows that when it comes to photoshop skills, these are about as far from professional as you'll find on the Internet. Not that she's concerned.

"The pictures aren’t the best quality, but that’s kind of the point. I have no idea how to use Photoshop. I’m not trying to professionally cover him."

"I’m just slapping him with Beyonce, and people are really responding to that ... it’s an ode to how much effort I put into the relationship, if you will.”

Touche.

When you want to get rid of your boyfriend but keep the photos of yourself, who better to paste over him than Queen Bey?

Not only does Kim Kardashian long for the #SkinnyDays, she's reinventing those days of yore, a bygone era when she was oh so thin, many eons ago.

Photoshop style.

Yes ... as if image-obsessed Kim yearning for the skinny days of old weren't setting a poor enough example, now she may have retroactively made 2010 Kim thinner ...

Kim Kardashian Photoshopped Pics

If you missed it, Kim recently shared a shot of herself rocking a white Balmain skirt and a tight ponytail from an event in Los Angeles a few years back.

Apparently wishing that she looked like that right now, the reality star captioned the sexy pic, “Throwback to a few years ago #SkinnyDays #OnTheTreadmillRightNOW.”

Upon kloser examination, several major differences between the way this Kardashian picture looked Tuesday and four years ago have become apparent:

Prince William and Kate Middleton cover Vanity Fair this month along with their adorable one-year-old son, George.

Lately, most of the media coverage surrounding the royal couple has been focused on rumors that Kate is pregnant with baby number two.

That news has yet to be confirmed or officially denied, but today the British tabloids took a break from the Royal Bump Watch to examine Will's chrome dome on the VF cover.

Many eagle-eyed royal obsessives have noted that Will's hair seems significantly fuller in the cover shot than it does in real life.

  • Prince William After the Match

The accusations of Photoshopping gained so much traction that Vanity Fair issued a public statement on the matter today:

Sometimes, the use of Photoshop removes arms and takes away nipples.

Other times, it restores your faith in humanity.

Such was the case for Nathen Steffel, whose daughter Sophia passed away in Cincinnati's Children's Hospital after suffering a hepatic hemangioma in her liver at just six weeks old.

Not long afterward, Steffel told his sad story on Reddit and made a request of other users:

"Since she was in the hospital her whole life we never were able to get a photo without all her tubes," he wrote. "Can someone remove the tubes from this photo?"

Sick Daughter

And complete strangers took it from there.
