20 Images Show you How Much Online Images Are Photoshopped

Peter Stewart is an internationally published photographer with thousands of followers and millions of views. He’s also a wizard with Photoshop, and you can see from these revealing before and after pictures just what sort of difference some clever editing can make.
“I like to approach my digital photography with a certain sense of the fantastical and the surreal,” Stewart told PetaPixel. He uses a technique called bracketed multiple exposure, which allows him to retain highlight details from different photographs before stacking them together into one picture.
“These before and after samples are simply meant to highlight what can be done with the power of Photoshop,’ says Stewart. “As such, I have deliberately provided the most dramatic examples.”
