Some of the greatest Photoshop battles of all time!
We all know there’s a metric s**tload of awesome things the internet has given us, and naturally, we all have our favourites. However, there’s one thing that we reckon pretty much everyone can agree on: a friggen good Photoshop battle is one of the greatest things man has ever invented. Deadset, we challenge you to find anyone with at least half a functioning brain-cell who doesn’t get excited when they’re presented with the prospect of watching one unfold.
Just in case you’re new to the internet and have no idea what we’re talking about, a Photoshop battle basically occurs when someone posts a new photo online and someone – it could be a chat-group moderator, the owner of a Facebook page, or, really, any bloody legend with the capacity to say, “Here, ya bogans, Photoshop this and see how funny you can make it.”
Of course, there can only be one winner. What’s probably not that surprising, though, is that depending on the context, the level of sophistication can be pretty bloody high. Deadset, the best ones reference pop culture, subvert the message of the original photo and add a good serve of satire.
Typically, other users of the site – or wherever the competition has taken place – will vote on the pictures and the one with the most votes wins. The reward can be anything from simple kudos to real prize-money. And, yeah, it gets pretty competitive.
As we said above, everyone loves seeing a bloody good Photoshop job, and when you’ve got a whole bunch of creative competing to out-do each other, the results are bloody brilliant. Have a good squiz at some of these former winners of various comps and laugh your arse off.
Final thought: Honestly, sometimes we wonder what real talent we’d like to possess. Usually, we’ll pop for maestro-level lead guitarist, but looking at these, championship level Photoshopper wouldn’t be a bad choice either. What do you blokes and blokettes reckon?
