Photoshop is an amazing tool that has revolutionized the world of editing. With Photoshop, it's possible to alter an image in any way you want, and make people believe what you want them to believe. This tool has helped photographers and editors to produce flawless images of their not so perfect models by eliminating any unsightly marks, while at the same time enhancing some features that will make the models look even more beautiful.
However, when models and very beautiful celebrities use Photoshop to enhance their already "perfect" bodies, what message does that send to teenagers who are insecure about their appearance? Hollywood and magazine covers are sending out a strong statement that to be perfect you have to be extra thin and have flawless skin, a feat that is impossible to achieve even for the celebrities themselves. Thanks to Photoshop, plus-size girls end up feeling even more insecure about their appearance, and young boys are willing to do anything to look a bit more macho and masculine just like their heroes on magazine covers.
Photoshopping a celebrity at times defeats the point, because it is possible to come across these celebrities in different forums where their image will not pass through an editor before it lands before your eyes. Some celebrities even take the time to edit and enhance their images themselves before they post them on Instagram or any other social media platform, just to make their followers think they are perfect in every way. Here is a list of celebrities who have fallen victim to the trap of wanting to look perfect, when we already love them just as they are.
10 Lady Gaga
8 Jennifer Lawrence
7 Kourtney Kardashian
6 Megan Fox
5 Keira Knightley
4 Demi Moore
3 Beyoncé Knowles

1 Kim Kardashian
Keeping up with the Kardashians is a reality TV show that keeps Kim Kardashian in the limelight, together with other stunts such as posing naked for a shoot and releasing the photos online, getting married to Kanye West, and releasing a sex tape that made her famous in the first place. Kim is undoubtedly the most photoshopped celebrity of all time, whether she is the one doing it or a magazine that wants to meet its sales quota. It is hard to understand her need to Photoshop herself, yet she has gone through all forms of cosmetic surgeries to make herself look "perfect".
