These family portraits may be the worst Photoshop fail of all time

Heavy-handed photo retouching has come under scrutiny in recent years. But you’ve ever seen a botched Photoshop job like this before.

Pam and Dave Zaring shared a series of photos to their Facebook page on Friday of a family photoshoot they had taken last year.

“We paid a photographer, who claimed to be a professional, $250 for a family photo shoot. Please learn these FOR REAL photos she delivered to us, ” they wrote, along with six fantastically scaring photographs featuring some serious digital alterations.

According to the post, this is most definitely NOT a joke, and their own families entirely paid the photographer for these photos. Apparently, the photographer said here darkness were bad, and she was never taught how to retouch photos.

“She said the shadows were really bad on the beautiful, clear, sunny day and that her prof never taught her to retouch photos, ” the salty post reads.

At least everyone had a good attitude about the whole thing: “I literally have not laughed this hard in YEARS, ” they wrote.

Honestly, $250 well spent.

We’ve reached out to Pam and Dave, and we’ll update this history with additional comments and information if we hear back.

IMagery by Lesa Hall, which each photo is watermarked, is a registered business in Missouri, where the Zarings live, according to Facebook.

This Astronaut Just Shut Down Trump On Twitter Twice In 24 Hours

Astronauts, apart from living happy lives back on World after the fact, should be spend most of their occasion either in space or expressing science to the masses- or both. They should not have to trash any time arguing with flat-earthers on Tv , nor should they have to shut down the President of the United States.

Sadly, although a brand-new time has been engaged in, this is the age of Alternative Facts. Shortly after ending 2017 on a mind-achingly sad statement about climate change issues science, Trump started 2018 as he meant to go on: tweeting inflammatory statements, including information responding to North Korea’s drama-matching leader, Kim Jong-un, wherein he spoke of an omnipresent nuclear button on his desk.

“I too have a Nuclear Button, ” POTUS responded, with his usual eloquence and attention to proper grammar and punctuation. “It is a much bigger& most powerful one than his, and my Button operates! ”

Apart from being the most nauseating and concerning genital assessing competition in human history, this is clearly not how nuclear strikes are launched, and anyway, the physical size of the button is irrelevant to how many nukes it could hypothetically launch.

Weirdly, this was probably Trump’s attempt at a metaphor, where the button referred back to the size and destructive capability of America’s nuclear arsenal.

In any case, it’s obviously ludicrous to razz a volatile nuclear power like this, which is why one Mark Kelly– a retired astronaut, and brother of fellow spacefarer Scott Kelly- are determined to step in, as spotted by the Washington Press.

Trump hasn’t replied to this purveyor of the cosmos at the time of writing, and he’s unlikely to. Kelly, for one thing, is simply too on the ball for a linguistically objection President to fend off.

Shortly ahead, Kelly spotted another of Trump’s tweets. Although not exactly inflammatory, it makes a claim which is beyond ludicrous.

Now, clearly , good-for-nothing Trump has done has had an effect on the safety of air travel. There’s no proof to suggest anything has changed in this regard, especially on Trump’s orderings. Air travel has indeed never been safer, but Trump claiming credit for this is like a hamster taking credit for writing Wonderwall by Oasis. It would be funny, if it wasn’t so offensively daft.

Kelly took another shot at the Tweeter-in-Chief, use nothing but factual information and one inferno of a slap down at the end.

We, for one, to be expected that Kelly preserves this up. Maybe it’s the Britishness in us coming out, but sometimes best available form of opposition is a strongly worded note- or tweet, in this case.
