Do you ever feel like half the images you see online are fake? So do we. Below we’ve pulled together twelve photos and GIFs that have been floating around the internet recently. And they’re all fake.
Ankur Patar is an artist with a talent for recreating famous paintings. His forgeries wouldn’t fool a child, let alone an art expert, but they’re still absolutely remarkable pieces of art unto themselves because they’re painstakingly assembled in Photoshop using nothing but stock photos.
Software updates exist to patch vulnerabilities and to add features, and installing those updates is just common sense. Photoshop will usually remind you on startup if you haven’t updated, but Adobe has gone the extra mile and created an ad based on phone sex hotlines.
So writer Nick Spencer had a bad idea for Captain America. And Marvel had the worse idea by letting it happen. But, as is often the case, the fans took the shitty lemons they were handed and made lemonade.
Lian Marrero has an unusual job. When a customer arrives at his studio, he takes their photograph in whatever they happen to be wearing. Then, he fires up phot0-editing software, so his subject can leave looking smarter in print than in person.
Regular users of Photoshop have probably come across this problem before: After you’ve straightened a photo by slightly rotating it to one side or the other, your ability to then crop the image is severely limited without having to clone in missing corners. The next version of Photoshop, however, will do that all for…
Selfie sticks are inherently silly, but they somehow become even sillier when they get Photoshopped to replace guns in movie scenes.

Last week, we tasked you with celebrating the release of The Force Awakens by trying to match the movie’s completely bizarre and overwhelming array of tie-in products. The results are in, and from what I can tell, io9 readers love bad puns and going a little lewd (which is why we love you). Check ‘em out!
Happy Star Wars eve, everyone! We might all be waiting for The Force Awakens to finally premiere, but it won’t be the movie that overwhelms us going forward— it’ll be the tie-in merchandise.

Designers at Clearlink dressed up under an X-Men theme and then…
British Prime Minister David Cameron is struggling to catch a break at the moment.
