45 Times People Uncovered How Fake Some Pics On Instagram Are And Just Had To Share (New Pics)

, , , , , , , , , ,

With the rise of photo-editing software and the increasing importance of our image on social media, most of us sometimes get worried about what people think of us. Do I look good enough? Do I dress stylish enough? What do people think of me when they see my picture? Would I get more likes/upvotes/notes/tiny red digital hearts if I did X, Y, and Z?

Unfortunately, some people have these thoughts far too often and take them to extremes: they care about their image so damn much that they start heavily photoshopping the pictures they upload online. This results in people looking radically different online than they do in real life. And when you put those pictures together side by side? Wow. The difference is striking, often hilarious, and might make some of us wish you were born before they invented electricity.

We’ve collected some of the best examples of Instagram vs. reality pics, so get ready for some shocking comparisons. Scroll down, upvote the pics you enjoyed, and let us know what you think in the comments. After you’re done with this list, be sure to check out Bored Panda’s previous articles showing the vast difference between what some people look like in real life and how they present themselves on social media right here, here, and here.

There are more people who Photoshop their pictures than most of us think. Of course, most of these edits aren’t as drastic as the ones shown in this list, but it still raises the question of how widespread this is.

According to one study, two thirds of Australian women believe that it’s wrong for magazines to edit photos before printing them. The irony is that 57 percent of them also admitted to Photoshopping their own pictures before posting them on social media.

The desire to receive approval and to create a positive reputation for oneself means that some people take multiple selfies in order to get the ‘perfect’ shot.

“The thing is, they’re constantly having to meet unrealistic standards of beauty,” Dr. Lewis explained. She noted that there is huge pressure for women to look ‘perfect’ in the age of social media. “Women in particular who are very concerned about their bodies can spend hours editing photos.”
