Selfie sticks are inherently silly, but they somehow become even sillier when they get Photoshopped to replace guns in movie scenes. So instead of Clint Eastwood balancing his revolver in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, he’s now angling a selfie stick to take a picture of himself smoking a cigar. Instead of menacing…
The truth is out there. And by “out there” I mean anywhere but the internet. We see hundreds of images flash in front of our eyes every month. But these are the ones you might have seen recently that deserve a second look. Because they’re all fake.
Last week, we tasked you with celebrating the release of The Force Awakens by trying to match the movie’s completely bizarre and overwhelming array of tie-in products. The results are in, and from what I can tell, io9 readers love bad puns and going a little lewd (which is why we love you). Check ‘em out!
Happy Star Wars eve, everyone! We might all be waiting for The Force Awakens to finally premiere, but it won’t be the movie that overwhelms us going forward— it’ll be the tie-in merchandise. There’s so much of it out there already, but we thought we’d add to the fun with some of our own—and that’s where you come in,…
Poor Adobe. Along with everyone pre-eulogizing Flash, the only other property of theirs you can name—Photoshop—is in danger. Intellectual property danger.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or more commonly, it’s shaped and defined by cultural standards that are different around the world. To try and understand how the perfect body is viewed across the world, designers from 18 countries were asked to Photoshop the same model.
Yesterday's solar eclipse was one of the most spectacular in recent memory. So it's a shame that thousands of people were duped into thinking this image — supposedly taken from the International Space Station — was the real deal. It's obviously not, and here's why.
So today during the hours in which I had nothing to do I made some images with new names for tv-shows. Four I like (So it is done with love) and one tv-show I do not like.
We've seen more than our fair share of disappointing follow-ups to the movies we loved, but just as disappointing have been some of the movies we haven't seen. Today, we fix that.
What would happen if we mixed a baboon with a sparrow, or a shark with a spider? We may never find out in the real world, but here is where Photoshop can help. Check out these absolutely horrifying hybrid species as envisioned by artist Sarah DeRemer.
Oh God, what have I done? Oh that's right, I asked the wrong people to create an alternative line of sexy video game Halloween costumes. I brought this on myself, and now I'm bringing it to you.
Last week, we asked you to put your digital manipulation skills to the test by coming up with a new look for Star Wars' Stormtroopers. Here are the greatest—and strangest—ideas that you came up with.
The big Star Wars rumor swirling about the Internet this week is that some Stormtroopers will appear in Episode VII with a major makeover. Folks, we think you can do better. Use your image editing skills to dream up the Stormtroopers you'd like to see in the next movie.
Whether tapping into the Hulk's sensitive side or taking the epic battle of Superman and Batman to the venue that it was always meant to end in (small claims court), the fact that these movies don't really exist will never stop making us sad. Fortunately, we've at least got the posters.
You've got Photoshop, an idea about how to fix a movie, and the absolute certainty that it's time to combine the two. Let's do this thing.
That these movies — featuring Oscar the Grouch taking the Hulk as a mentor, Gene Kelley fighting the matrix with dance, and Indiana Jones taking a Ferris Bueller style day off — don't really exist is a box office travesty. Fortunately, we still have the posters.
There are movies that are great as is and then there are movies that need a little something (more robots, or a Hulk cameo, perhaps) to take them from just okay to perfect. Well, no longer. Fire up your Photoshops, people! Today, we fix all the movies.
