40 Times Those Instagram Photoshop Maniacs Were Busted

by Damjan

Social networks gave us the ability to reach people we’ve never met, and some of us became quite good at it. Yes, we are talking about notorious influencers.

And even though some of them actually have something interesting or meaningful to show, most of them are pretty shallow and rely on posting images of their beautiful selves. Of course, their online appearance is not even close to what they really look like.

Photoshop, heavy filtering, and all kinds of advanced (and not so advanced) tools are employed to present an image that’s completely unreal. Sadly, these influencers are followed by many kids and teens who are still not experienced enough to tell what’s real and what’s fake.

And, as a result, kids develop a warped image about what they should look like or act. r/Instagramreality is s a subreddit whose members strip down the glamor of make-up, flattering poses, and all kinds of photo editing and expose the truth behind the facade.

And, we have to tell you, it ain’t pretty…You wouldn’t want to meet any of these “beautiful” people in a dark alley.

Or anywhere else, for that matter. We have selected 40 of the “best” pics, and we know you are going to love them.

And while influencers are not that hard to understand, we can’t say the same for “regular” people. Influencers do it for profit and show their heavily altered pics to people they will never meet in person.

But regular people share filtered pics with people they know. And those people know what they really look like…
