Photoshop is a special sort of magic where a regular girl can become Iron Man and a dog can start singing like a pop star. Professionals of this art sometimes turn a simple photo into a masterpiece just by adding a couple of simple details.
Since the introduction of the first image editing software, people have continually astounded us with their creativity and talent. And there is no better place to put your abilities to the test than the r/photoshopbattles subreddit.
The subreddit hosts a battle each week in which people are given an image to manipulate and are encouraged to be as inventive as possible. Check out the winning shots from the most spectacular Photoshop wars in the gallery below, which feature anything from cuddly bears to gorgeous ducklings!
