Alexei Navalry Blunder

Earlier this year, a Russian newspaper published this image of the time when Navalny (an anti-Kremlin activist) met Berezovsky (a Russian oligarch who is wanted for criminal activity in his country). The image was, in fact, tinkered with by pro-Kremlin activists who were attempting to run a smear campaign against Navalny in the lead up to the March 4 elections. Ironically, Navalny was hanging out with a different oligarch at the time this photo was taken. Once this was made public, Navalny mocked the slanderous allegations made against him by creating his own humorous doctored photos on his blog.

Paris Traffic

A photograph aimed to show the traffic on the “peripherique” in Paris was an obvious Photoshop job doctored by ex-minister, Denis Baupin. The photograph shows streams of vehicles travelling on the road, with a few drivers displaying an impressive flare for reverse driving. While not a pretty sight, it’s clear to see that this is not what was happening at the time.

Canadian MP Rathika Sitsabaitesen had her portrait Photoshopped when the neckline of the shirt she was wearing revealed a little too much cleavage. The amended PG version of the photograph was welcomed and took the place of the original. While not so much a blunder, it was an obvious alteration that needed to be made before being made visible to the public.

The UK’s Tendring District Council use human cloning as their main selling point in this advertisement. Not only have the same people been used over and over again in close proximity to their doppelgänger, but the designer also thought a cheeky reverse image flip would be enough to fool viewers into thinking these were different people.

North Korea Funeral Procession

A photograph of the funeral procession of former North Korean leader Kim Jong-il was carefully altered to tidy up the media teams from the picture (left). This was only realised after the unaltered picture was sent to one newspaper, while the altered picture was sent to another. A surprising move considering how trivial the presence of the cameramen was in the original image. It leaves you wondering how many other images released by the Korean Central News Agency have been manipulated. Surely, it’s not just the one time…

Pyongyang Floods

Once again, North Korea were caught out with a Photoshop fail after Associated Press believed a picture submitted to them was altered to exaggerate the floods, in an attempt to get more international aid. Following this discovery, AP ordered all pictures to be withdrawn immediately.

    It’s surprising how crappy these manipulations are, especially considering the government was behind the funding. You’d think they could find someone learned enough to do simple manipulation.

    Hi Smashinghub team,

    The second picture above, about Philippine Officials, was one of the biggest issues in our country recently.

    In the negative side, it was really annoying and disappointing. However, in the positive side, I was proud since It looks more realistic than the other. :D

    Anyway, Excellent Job with this post. Good research. :)

    Regards,
    Manuel Garcia
