Instagram vs Reality ep. 8 | Big Celebs Making Small Gains


Hello and Welcome to another episode of Instagram
vs reality. If you’re new here, this is the segment of
the channel where we look at how your favourite fakestagrammers edit their photos into making
you believe they’re the real deal.I know many of you have been asking for a full episode
covering real time editing like with twitch streamers and livestreams but thats in the
works for the next episode. This week all of the photos are from the ig
reality subreddit so give them a visit for some extra context. I’ve upgraded my mic to a rode NT1-A after
hearing your complaints, and I’ll speak slower so that things are a bit clearer. As always I’d like to put out the disclaimer
that this video is simply meant to be informative and is not target at harming or injuring anyone’s
brand or their image. Look man, if its up on insta its free game. Alright let’s start with an easy one. This is such a cookie cutter example of your
favourite influencer’s travel pics with hashtags such as wanderlust and travel diary,
when we both damn well know shes trying to show us her life is better than ours. If we take a quiet look at the waves, it’s
very odd that these runup waves curve to the contour of her body but these cresting waves
are parallel to the shore. Unless there was some kind of hidden sand
trap behind her out of view, there’s no reason for water to take the path of most resistance
and curve like that. I do work for Instagram influencers in my
free time so this is a very common type of liquify edit that’d I’d be asked to do,
the majority of which are from big travel influencers selling bikini pics to thirsty
men. It’s true I’m selling both the poison and
the cure, but hey that’s capitalism folks. A better way to do this would be to create
a freeze mask that tells the computer to leave the wave pixels alone and only focuses on
her. She must have done this with a very large
brush because all of the ripples follow the same direction, so my guess it was done with
her thumbs on the facetune app and not on photoshop. See this next one, I wouldn’t have called
it out if it weren’t for the extra cockiness. Look if you’re going to edit yourself that’s
fine, but for the love of all things holy be subtle about it and definitely do not draw
attention to it. Even the best in the industry, and I mean
working for the top modelling agencies admit that they can never do a perfect job in their
edits, because they’re limited by the pixels of the computer and not their own eyes. It’s all about misdirection and praying they
don’t notice. So right at the back the bench is bending
downwards, the walls are bulging outwards and there’s a huge amount of image artifacts,
in this case blur zones in this region here. Also this joinery seal on the floor is curving
upwards, where as the bench is curving downwards meaning they’re two different edits and
that one was used to make her stomach flatter and the other to make her breasts larger. Moving on, we have another case of adobe gains. This one is a bit harder to spot. She’s done a solid job with the liquify and
has clearly used a freeze mask to make sure that this frame doesn’t bend. She’s wearing what I’m guessing is a black
satin dress so it should absorb most if not all of the light hitting it. This region here is unedited because the ripples
of her dress cause light to reflect along it obliquely. This region here is edited because A) zooming
In you can see a blur zone here of heavy pixelation as all the pixels surrounding her butt get
mashed together. See how clear the reflection here is, you
can see the creepy masked doll in the reflection, what the hell does she have in her house. There’s also an aura which is another image
artifact left behind after her editing, because as I mentioned in a previous video, reflections
are almost impossible to edit without leaving behind some kind of tell tale sign, it’s just
too complex. B) The light hitting her butt does downwards
and not obliquely like the rest of her body, and is for the most part dissipated because
the pixels that were showing the light were mashed together in the liquify tool soup. If anything there should be more light on
her butt because it’s closer to the light source. I expected better of emrata. I get comments on my previous videos like
dude, you don’t need to focus on the technicalities and these minute details, you can clearly
tell its edited. I’m sorry for the voice, I just naturally
assumed they’re low iq. The reason why I go into the finer details
is to provide evidence of editing. I can clearly see that it’s edited, but If
i said oh here you go it’s edited, how? I don’t know, I’d be no better than the
thousands of other sensationalist drama channels. If it’s not an easy case of bending walls
you might be able to tell me how it’s edited but you wouldn’t be able to tell me why
it’s edited without these finer details. Sometimes people just post such blatantly
bad edits I can’t help but think the jokes on me. I mean, the gap between the panels tells you
exactly what she’d moved around in the liquify tool. A cinch at the waist here and a little adobe
gains there and the photoshop fairy is all done. Oh this is a good one that I’ve been meaning
to show you all for weeks. In instagram reality ep.1 there were comments,
not a lot but few that absolutely refused to believe kylie edited her photos and it
was all bad angles, a long day at work making billions and bad lighting. In this photo the door frame appears to be
bending inwards, which is called me crazy, is an indicator of liquify tool use. It’s also a good example of illustrating what
I mean by image artifacts and blur zones, because to me that’s the best evidence of
liquify edits there is and the majority of instagram uses this type of edit more than
any other. Here’s a not so quick recap, when you use
the liquify photoshop, or whatever app you’re using, it converts all the pixels to a pixel
distortion map of X,y coordinates, when you move a pixel it remaps it to a new coordinate,
but the existing pixel that was already there doesn’t get deleted, it either gets blurred
or the two pixels get combined resulting in image artifacts. If it got deleted you’d end up with black
dots all over your image. There’s an in depth article on how the algorithm
works in javascript in the description if you’re really interested. In kylies edit, there’s an aura of overlapped
pixels that forms around the doorframe because modern cameras pick up all shades of a shadow,
meaning when they overlap you get a distinct glow around the edited parts as pixels are
combined. I don’t even know why she did it, it was
such high risk for such little reward. Strange how there’s always distorted lines
around their hips. Maybe it’s an artistic effect because these
lines are as straight as James Charles. I can’t see a reason for editing the tiles
here because it wouldn’t affect her body shape but this line here definitely indicates
that her hips were widened. She has red pupils, at this point I think
she knew she messed up and called it art. You know what annoys me. When people edit their photos and then put
a motivational quote acting like its au naturale. Her left elbow is 2 times as thick as her
right. She’s pulled her waist in from both sides,
the problem is her arm got in the way so the liquify tool dragged those pixels with it. Does this shape look natural to you? Straight, sin wave, and they say maths isn’t
useful. Here’s one for the boys, where he’s pulled
his jaw outwards causing the pole on the fence to bend. Now this one throws in a bit of doubt, like
12 angry men. The singular pole is bent’ but the others
are straight meaning it was done with quite a fine brush to not disrupt anything else. There are two different types of inflections
on the pole, one one and one here, indicating two separate edits. This inflection here suggests that he raised
the skin underneath his jaw, there’s also a bit of a pixel spill over creating an blend
in pixels from where his jaw ends and the background begins. His hyoid bone has been raised because this
shrub in the background curves in the same direction as his lower hyoid bone. Last bit of evidence to present to the jury
is the blurring of light here. If you notice very carefully, as soon as I
touch the pole with the liquify tool it instantly starts to blur and its most noticeable on
the bright white reflection which turns into an offwhite colour. These poles are straight and unedited but
the wavy pole has this offwhite, blurred effect in the original image, meaning it was tampered
with. Impossibly perfect jawlines are a lot rarer
than you think. Alright, that brings another episode to a
close. As always leave a like because it supports
the channel. I’ll be putting out defining beauty ep.3
soon where I cover the how the nose influences your face shape and week after it should be
the jaw. Be sure to click the little notification bell,
or so youtube keeps telling me to tell you that and follow me @shvfee if you like chill,
aesthetic vibes.

  1. Listening back on it, the audio quality is day and night compared to my past videos. So… thanks for putting up with it this far!

  2. I have no idea how I found this channel but man I'm glad I did because the amount of ways people manipulate themselves is crazy.

  3. Deareth detecctivves! Would you pleasez helpeth me investigate if this image looks realz or fakez? Thanks in advanzzze.

  4. Her life is better than ours…that's exactly y I stopped using Instagram cuz I found it so fake and cute animal photos can only makeup so much.

  5. When did underboob become a thing? Nothing looks more ridiculous than somebody who's wearing a bikini that is clearly too small for them…

  6. Being following your series, really interesting content with technical analysis that I can understand easily, and I have zero experience and knowledge of all this! Just wanted to point out that for the photo of the guy, it's not the hyoid bone that's been edited, it's the thyroid cartilage.

  7. I love your channel because you show that although they are famous or influencers they will never be perfect because that standard of beauty is impossible to achieve and that idea is what makes many have mental problems.
    I wish they could show themselves as the humans they are although I don't doubt that they also suffer pressure.

    Keep it up, I love your work, greetings from Mexico!⭐️

  8. Continue doing what you do. Your videos are really informational. Also , on people's demand, if you really just start pointing at pics and saying it's edited you will be like the Instagram pages. Your explanation provides insight into how the picture was edited and by what degree. Keep up the great work 😍😍😍

  9. This is great.
    I still don't understand the appeal of editing your photos to look thinner/fitter. Just work out or diet instead of lying to everyone and to yourself.

  10. I just looked at the pic of Emily Rksjfkslsjfk today and thought HOOOOW is she so slim but has a butt like that? Now I feel better 😅 she is beautiful either way

  11. 0:57 , is it just me or is that photoshop like hella ugly. Tbh it’s not cute, it’s not sexually appealing, she just looks like an alien. I don’t mind people photoshopping but this just looks gross? Whoever told her this was cute is lying..

  12. if I ever decide to become Instagram famous I'd avoid editing my photos, this dude will hunt me down in a scientific way 😂❤️

  13. Lov your videos, and thank you for being honest about "selling the poison and the cure" everyone has to make a living, but not everyone is honest about the industry they make a living off of, keep up the fantastic work

  14. Tiffany ferg has done social commentary videos on face tuning, filters, botox and how that affects us. I know your videos are more about techniques and the science behind beauty, but I think theres an intersection c:

  15. Please never stop going into detail
    – a graphic designer who is a sucker for spotting invisible postproduction everywhere

  16. Emily is so funny, cause she'll post both those pictures one after the other, like does she even care? lol You could definitely produce that difference based on clothing (straight super lowrise skirt vs bodycon dress), posing (mid stride vs hip jutting toward the camera), and the angle of the picture (eye level vs looking up), and she poses REALLY hard

  17. One thing that would help is if you showed more of a final product when you "undo" or "fix" the images. You show a zoomed in animation of you moving people's waists back into place, for instance, but we never get a better sense of the original image. Obviously undoing edits can be timely and won't be perfect, but it would help to show us just how much of a change took place between the original and the edited image. Maybe not for every picture, but one or two per video would be nice.

  18. 5:07 who the hell thinks that people like that is real???? if their income and popularity depends on how they look they are obviously going to change how they look by any means. You have to be a stupid 13 year old girl to believe this bullshit. The same goes for some fitness channels, if their income depends on how they look, it's not crazy to think they are getting extra help.

  19. 5:15 can u pick a different picture of Kylie to compare to? That one you have is when media picked up that she overfilled her lips and it was also visible in front view. When her lips went down over the days as usual is when her regular look came back. I see tabloids posting more accurate side views that you can use.

    I’m saying this because as a viewer I really like your content but when it seems a bit untruthful or like a stretch of the imagination like this with Kylie it makes me wonder what else might be a stretch.

  20. I love this series, even though I'm not really an Instagram person, I like to watch your vids.
    But honestly, all these people are so weird to me, why edit things like that, what's the point, they're not gaining anything from it, are they?
    I can understand editing black circles and zits out, but who caresif your stomach is 1cm flatter or your ass 2cm bigger? The self-conceit of this generation, I swear…

  21. No, i just came here to say tht Emily booty is nice. She has fleash on right place. Clickbait's white pic is So wrong😑

  22. The one who said that kylie jenner doesn’t photoshop her picture are the obsessed fans that belive everything she says even the pregnancy gain purity stupid shit like she’s insecure she always beeen insecure about her face body she always edit and photoshop her face and body and it’s never enough for her

  23. I was skeptical about Emrata having a big butt and being super thin. Then i saw your video and it all made sense. All the Instagram famous celebs don't look good in real life.

  24. Funny how the girls waist in the first picture is imo a lot more beautiful when left unedited. These people genuinely suffer from some kind of body dismorphia and are delusional about their appearance.

  25. Have you considered that being Emily Oscars’ lean would affect her glutes size? She could be editing her photos, but she seemed like she was very lean on the Oscars. It’s hard to have a perky butt unless your a bodybuilder who worked really hard on your glutes to step on stage.

  26. Your way of delivering info is so awesome it combines a bit of humour and a lot of knowledge so as not to bore us. Please do more of celeb instagram pics i think what you're doing is great work as you're making more people aware that what they see is not achievable in real life

  27. Emily ratajkowski does have a nice butt without photoshop. If you look up videos you can see that she looks like she does in pictures. Idk why she would even do editing when she looks great.

  28. The girls with such obvious mistakes show they are so self obsessed that they don't even SEE the crooked cupboard right next to them, they are only looking at themselves.

  29. I understand editing to clear up your skin, maybe a pimple here and there. But your breast size and butt size? When you go out or go on your tinder date they will be staring funny because you don't have the lie you are trying to sell.
