Humor: CollegeHumor Takes on the Anti-Photoshop Movement in Hilarious Fashion

The anti-Photoshop movement is serious business. Videos that demonstrate what the liquify tool and an overzealous retoucher can do deliver an important message about unrealistic expectations and the need for transparency when significant Photoshopping is involved.

The video shows by far the most drastic Photoshop transformation we’ve ever seen and nails all of the anti-Photoshop video clichés in the process.

Humor: What Would Instagram be Like if it Had Been Invented in the ’80s?

Here’s a fun little thought experiment for you: what would Instagram have been like if the filter-tastic service had been invented back in the 1980s? Well, in the most recent episode of Wonders of the World Wide Web, the folks at Squirrel-Monkey try to answer that question… with a little touch of humor of course.

We won’t ruin the details for you, but suffice it to say 1980s Instagram offers a lot less filter options and requires that you take a short jaunt to the local gas station every time you want to turn a snapshot into a slightly blurry, pixelated or sepia-toned versions of the original.
