Photoshop is a great tool for brushing up misplaced hairs, wrinkled clothing, or the odd zit.

But it’s no secret that retailers love to abuse Photoshop to make women pencil-thin.

Sometimes this obsession with Photoshop leads to massive, comical fails. The hilarious website Photoshop Disasters has collected many of these mishaps.

Take a look at some of these outrageous Photoshop fails:
