photoshopped photo sneaks past Attitude editors

Looking through the Attitude website to find out if the October issue had been published, I clicked on a link which just enticingly said ‘MEN’. It took me to this page: which encouraged me to vote for their hukiest cover star. I found the following photo with the caption: ‘Hell Yeah!’

So, my interest firmly aroused, so to speak, I went a googling for ‘Swedish Decathlete‘ and quickly found this item:, which said the athlete in question, one Björn Barrefors, had been the unfortunate benefactor of a photoshopped penis enhancement. I would have thought Attitude might just have been a tiny bit more careful in their research of this picture before publishing it!

And I found this rather wonderful ‘before and after’ animated gif:

Maybe not the most riveting piece of news, but the opportunity to post the photo was largely irresistible! I could watch this for hours!

Having recently learned how to make my own animated .gifs, I couln't resist the opportunity to try and see if I could return the favour. It proved absurdly easy. Here's the result:

Incidentally, when I tried to download the picture, I got a different file, so I had to do a screenshot of the before and after and make an animated .gif using Then it wouldn’t animate when I looked at the preview of the post. I’ve had to resort to hosting it on my own website and then using the URL of the image in the <img> tag.

tinyURL for this post:


  1. Barrefors was photoshopped by me, one of the first I did for my project my email

  2. I still won't buy any photos at this point. I'll simply add the photos I've chosen to a lightbox and email

  3. You will see that once you get hold of the techniques that will make your photos look more presentable or would make them look like professional works of art, you will be more satisfied with your work once it is done.More about the author
