100 Heart-Thumping Photo Manipulations

From Fruity Everyday Objects to Snow-Covered Scenescapes

— November 16, 2011 — Art & Design
Those with weak stomachs should be warned that one look at these photo manipulations could leave you speechless. This set of freakish photo art will test your patience with some jaw-dropping pieces.

Photo manipulations suck viewers in and hook readers with a variety of cleverly Photoshopped images. Many advertising and marketing concepts dwell on this theme and the results are quite catastrophic. Some would love to see cheese celebrity blogs or faux skinless faces, while others would need a steel stomach to bear freaky and horrifying digital manipulations.

If a couple of these images have scared you off, well, pull up your socks as photo manipulations have crept onto the billboards and glossy pages of many magazines, and sure aren't going anywhere anytime soon.
