This is the worst photoshopped image of all time, courtesy of a South Korean newspaper


In a recent meeting at the White House, President Obama met with South Korean President Park Geun-hye to talk about the recent growing tensions due to North Korea’s threats. They of course shook hands while I assume numerous photographers took pictures of them. So why in the world did Korean newspaper Yonhap decide to go with this ridiculous-looking Photoshopped image above?

I mean, I’m not even sure how to describe it apart from saying that they didn’t even try with this one. LOOK AT THAT THING. It’s also even more puzzling when pictures of their handshake are readily available, as Gizmodo points out:


To make it even stranger still, “Yonhap News Agency is South Korea’s largest news agency” according to the ever-reliable Wikipedia. Maybe they were extremely affected by Adobe’s decision to discontinue physical copies of its Creative Suite, causing them to forget every basic fundamental of using Photoshop? That or they were using MS Paint to do the job.

Yonhap has since removed the image from their news article. But the internet will never forget. Never.

    This *apparent* Photoshopping goof is actually caused by the difference in the Presidents’ native time-zones and the quantum shift in pixels when Google-translating them to/from Korean/English. And, of course, jet lag.

    @Raeldin – Pretty good quickie fix. .

    Does anyone know why President Obama is trying to pull President Park’s finger?
