Photoflopped; We reveal secrets of how celebs 'fix' their own pictures.


KELLY Brook raised eyebrows with her latest photo on Instagram yesterday.

Her famous curves were not the only thing driving fans round the bend.

Some were quick to say that her waistline might have had a helping hand from Photoshop editing software.

Critics pointed out that the decking behind her waist looks curved and the wall behind her right shoulder also appears to have been edited.

One told Kelly, 37: "Photoshopped! Look at the decking! You don't need to do that! You have a great body!" Warped backgrounds can appear when someone uses editing software - normally on their phone - to pinch in their waist or thin down their legs.

Kelly admits she sometimes edits her pictures. But she's not the only star to have been accused of a Photoshop fail


Miranda, 34, posted this shot of herself with a sensationally slim waist in 2012. It turns out an almost identical photo taken that night was rather different. Model Kerr, who wed Snapchat's Evan Spiegel in May, claimed she copied it from another site, adding: "I had no idea it was Photoshopped."


The singer, 35, is regularly accused of editing her "thigh gap" in Instagram snaps. A fan spotted a distortion of some steps between her legs in this 2014 pic. It could just be a wonky riser. Just as well she's not in high heels.


It's just a bit of armless fun as Kim Kardashian, 36, loses one of her limbs after a suspected touch of Photoshop trickery. Posing for the snap after a night out with best friend Jonathan Cheban, Kim's right arm seems to have vanished during the partying, prompting her to caption the pic: "Ummm where's my arm lol."


Is this a case of porky pies? Mariah Carey, 47, was accused of slimming down her legs in this Thanksgiving pic of her holding a pie and cream last year. One user wrote: "Have a word about those bends in the cupboards and mirror."


Actress Lohan, now 31, denied this image was Photoshopped, but critics said the bendy edges to the white door were deeply suspicious of attempts to achieve a curvy waist and backside. One Instagram poster said: "Wow! So obvious! Poor thing!"


Sometimes you just can't predict what's on the horizon as Amanda Holden, 46, discovered when fans blasted her for seeming to improve a picture with Photoshop. Some of her followers on Instagram thought the curves to the sea and the decking were evidence of tampering. One user wrote: "Unless there's a tsunami, that photo has been Photoshopped."
