    No mistake in the “En Marche” one 🙂 It’s an advertise for social insurance : 100% free (repaid) for children. We can see, or guess that the missing legs are under the coats.

  2. Jenny says:

    the mistake in the second picture is her arms. you see how unrealistically skinny her arms are? and her hands, they look deformed or something.

  3. nieke says:

    and the first leg looks like it’s all one piece. too much photoshop..
    it’s just a complete disaster, if you look closely..

  4. Cathy says:

    The first girl’s arm looks fine to me. One is between the legs, but completely doable in real life.

  5. Michelle says:

    the first one it IS possible to pose like that if you take ballet you’d know that! lol! She’s just flexible and that is not an extra leg it is her thigh and her calf!

  6. amba says:

    the first picture is the girls arm :L
    and the second picture is the girls hand look its all weird lol
    but yeh really good spotting in that(Y) :L

  7. CDR says:

    Kinda lame.

  8. What am I missing on #2? (Sorry…) Also, the first one (woman’s hair) is lost on me. It looks like a completely “genuine” (albeit unattractive) hair style. You sure on that?

  9. Graphiics says:

    this is freaking awesome.

  10. Allie says:

    The mistake in the first one is that she has an additional leg and/or arm coming out of her back leg…

  11. VR says:

    There is no mistake in 1. Her pose is entirely possible (by a young flexible girl, not by an old inflexible me), and her hair is on purpose. It is the exact hair style she was going for – if you clicked through and read the article you would know that.

    I can’t find the error in the second picture. What is it?

  12. kittyvonlitter says:

    I think the mistake in the 1st one is her back foot is pointing at the camera whereas her front foot is pointing forward. that was the only one that baffled me for a while.

  13. Michelle says:

    The first ones mistake is the hair? Are you sure? I see hair styles like this all the time in magazines. I quite like it.

  14. Willie Atengco says:

    I’m not a fan of dark roast. This is my favorite – very bright, smooth and sweet. I never leave an unfinished cup of this brew!

  15. Livyir says:

    In #1 her hair is tied up like that explicitly to make it easy to Photoshop out and replace with something else. Whoever the artist was completely dropped the ball and forgot to change it.

  16. auRa says:

    I’m not seeing the mistake in picture #1. It looks like an unusual pose, that’s all. Am I just too tired?

  17. Tim says:

    #8 is actually a fantastically amazingly good piece of photography, and not a Photoshop mistake. The people are posed with their legs hidden behind the coats on purpose and I don’t even think they used Photoshop.

    Whoever did that is freaking awesome.

    Note to catch: It’s her right leg, his left leg. Seriously nice work.

  18. Wendy says:

    These are GREAT!!! I can’t believe some of these. Beyonce’s arm? The reflection on the car one, doesn’t even show the check’s rectangular shape in the shadow behind him either. #10 looks like she may even have SEVEN fingers!!! How in the world could someone let this slip. It just simply amazes me! LOL.

  19. Sonam Miller says:

    Big companies aren’t smarter or quicker than small companies. In many cases they’re slower, and less agile. People still rush for deadlines, and people everywhere get sloppy. It”s hilarious.

  20. Chuckles says:

    I love this stuff. Every time I see these I still can’t help but think…”how can these big companies miss these things?”

  21. Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!

  22. Jim says:

    when you said the worst, i thought to myself they can’t be that bad….i was wrong these are great….how does a company like JCPenny’s miss something like that…they need to hire you 🙂

  23. that was shocking yet funny.

  24. Vally says:

    Womens+photoshop is always a disaster. Even if everything goes well, its still a disaster if someone rly needs it to show self. Pathetic

  25. thanks for sharing 🙂
