40 Jaw-Dropping Photo Manipulations

By / Apr 22, 2010 / Inspiration

Give a talented and creative Photoshop user some photographs and the possibilities are only limited to the imagination. Photo manipulations are illusions created by photo editing techniques. There are subtle photo manipulations and there are those that depict a far-fetched illusion executed in a realistic way. The latter are normally meant to have some shock value with their audience. In this post we’ve rounded up 40 jaw-dropping photo manipulations. Some are funny and some will make you think, but they are all visually stunning.

    The snail with antlers, the tree sneaking behind the man, and the banana paste are my favorites. All of them are very well done though. These artists have an inspiring sense of creativity.

    Thanks!
