    Whoops, our hands slipped.

    Here at The Mary Sue, we try to report on all the news that's fit to geek out about in comics, gaming, pop culture, science, and more. But c'mooon. Let's not kid ourselves here. You all tune in because you want to see our ridiculous photoshop skills, right?

    Have courage & be bind(ed).

    Ok, we know corsets can do some wild things to the human body but we're 99.9% sure this image of Lily James from the upcoming Cinderella film is photoshopped. Right?

  3. “It Doesn’t Matter What Shape You Are”: Keira Knightley Poses Topless To Protest Photoshopping

  4. What Other Anachronistic Items Were Left In That Downton Abbey Promo Pic?


    It's been a really tough week in general, so I think I speak for all of us when I say we needed something like this Downton Abbey promo pic to come along. Look at it. Look hard. See something that shouldn't be there, considering Downton is set in the 1920s? Yeah. The person who was supposed to take that water bottle off the mantle just made everyone's week a whole lot more fun.

  5. Batman Hearts Superman, And Other Hilarious Memes Of Yesterday’s Batman v Superman Image

    "I want you to remember the man who looooooooves you."

    No one quite knows why Superman looks so glum in the Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser photo that was released yesterday. Still shaken up over the whole Zod thing from Man of Steel? Just saw The Iron Giant and feeel personally responsible? Who knows, but his misery (as well as Batman's misery, of course) is our amusement in this gallery.

  6. Esther Honig’s “Before and After” Series Shows Both the Dangers of Impossible Beauty Standards And Bad Photoshop

    You wanted your eyes to be angling the wrong way, right?

    Seeking to explore different national expectations of beauty, journalist Ester Honig asked 40 graphic designers from around the world to "make her beautiful." A cool idea, especially when you note that all of these designers were of widely different skill levels and were only paid $5 to $30 for their work, so some of that work is... not what you'd expect. It raises the question: how much of what we complain about when we look at magazines is because someone is not so great at their job

  7. Men Who Take Up Too Much Room on Subway Explained… With Cats!

    Elsewhere on the internet

    Men Taking Up Too Much Space on the Train is a blog dedicated to showcasing how easy it is for the masses to obtain pictures of men spreading themselves across two seats on a train, when they could easily take up one. It's framed, as much as any single serving Tumblog can frame an issue, as a demonstration of one of the myriad small ways in which the societal urgings -- that encourage women to be slight and small and above all not impose on others and that encourage men to assert their presence and claim their space -- manifest even in the smallest of ways. Saving Room For Cats posits that it's not the result of subtle societal messages at all: it's because all those guys are saving room for enormous photoshopped cats. And sometimes those cats are saving room for other cats.

  9. Unsurprisingly, Michael Bay’s Ninja Turtles Look Better Without Real Noses

    Oh good, I can feel my childhood-induced trauma waning.

    After seeing these photoshopped images that removed those terrifying noses from the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters, we have to wonder: what is it about the snouts that make the turtles so much more appealing?

  11. West Des Moines Police Department Shows Off Killer Photoshop Skills to Warn You Not to Drink and Drive

    We hope their sketch artist is better than this.

    Don't drink and drive or you might turn into a weird sad looking stick person and go to jail. At least that's the message we're taking away from this image posted to the West Des Moines police department's Facebook page yesterday as a warning to St. Patrick's Day drinkers. Seriously though, don't drink and drive.

  12. Superheroes Are Super Fine (Art) In This Photoshop Challenge


    Worth1000 knows the way to our hearts: By mixing sci-fi and classical paintings. Last month we showed you the results of their Star Wars Photoshop challenge, where artists took characters from a galaxy far, far away and inserted them into works of fine art. They’ve run several challenges in the same vein, but with superheroes. Yes, there is a lot of Wonder Woman. Some of our favorites are behind the jump. (via: Geeks Are Sexy)

  13. Wil Wheaton’s Fans Photoshop Him Into, Well, Everything

    what is this I don't even

    I don't know how fans photoshopping actor/writer Wil Wheaton's face into other pop-culture properties became such a big thing. But it has. And I'm glad. As far as I can tell, it all started when Wheaton tweeted a photo of himself on a green screen and one of his followers, a graphic designer, quickly photoshopped him onto the bridge of the Enterprise. So he posted another green screen photo and things just evolved (devolved?) from there.

  14. Movie Theater Uses Photoshop Instead of Real Thor 2 Poster Because the World Is a Magical Place

    What we wouldn't give for a copy of that poster.

    Imagine it: you are going to see Thor 2: The Dark World at the Shanghai Bona Insun International Cineplex. No doubt you're probably excited to watch all your favorite Norse gods battle it out a second time. And then you turn the corner and see -- this. Could it get any better? No, it can't.

  15. Photoshop Mash-Ups Marry Star Wars and Fine Art

    May The Force Be With You

    This Worth1000 photoshop challenge had digital artists take Star Wars characters and edit them into iconic works of art. Where else but the internet could we see Luke Skywalker as Jesus at the Last Supper? Or Emperor Palpatine with a gaggle of cherubs? I don't know about you, but I think this calls for a Renaissance AU.

    Back before the days of photoshop, brave muppeteers used to do this with actual puppets and fabric and cameras. Technology is a lovely thing.

  18. Don’t You Believe It: Fake Photos From Hurricane Sandy

    There's no shortage of impressive photos of the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy, as we showed you earlier. Of course, a steady supply of real photos isn't going to stop some people from passing along faked ones, whether to get their jollies or just because they don't know any better. Here are some of the most famous fakes of Hurricane Sandy so far -- some of which may even seem familiar.

  19. Learn Your ABC’s With Bikes, Booze, & Bézier Curve Flash Cards

    Things to Do With Your Kids

    Designer Emma Cook thinks regular ABC flash cards are outdated so she created some for a new generation. She writes, "Now design geek-hipster-interwebbers can teach their kids their ABC's with more culture-relevant examples." The result is a lot of photography and technology with a little bit of alcohol and coffee thrown in for good measure. Take a look!

  20. Seventeen Magazine Says No More Photoshop, Courtesy of the Work of a Fourteen Year Old Girl

    This Exists... Because of A Lady

    The battle against photoshop in women's magazines is not new; it's been waging for decades, and has become especially heated in the last ten years. For the most part, though, the forces on either side of the debate have been in a stand-off for some time, sometimes nudging towards acknowledgement of the other's validity, but never really getting anywhere long-lasting. When it comes to Seventeen magazine, that paragon of idealized (read: airbrushed) teen splendor, it fittingly took an actual teen voice (and the voices of the 84,000 people who stood behind her) to break through and take what could be one small step for the human image, one giant leap for Seventeen magazine.
