These photos are not what they seem. That's because they are all Photoshopped.

Initially, I began merging photos together as a way to illustrate my posts -- and because I couldn't find decent photos of those artists together.

Take for instance, this photo of Tameka, Usher and Chilli. This photo was lifted from my blog and reposted -- uncredited -- on numerous blogs and message boards and even on a news site as a legitimate news photo. But the photo is fake. I Photoshopped Tameka Foster into the photo with Usher and Chilli.

A few sharp eyed readers among you guessed that the above photo of Jay Z and Selita Ebanks was a phony. So I had to step my game up after that one. :)

But no one guessed that I inserted Jay Z into this infamous pic of Beyonce. Or that I juxtaposed Rocko and his mic into the pic below with his fiancee Monica.

Beware if you lift a photo from my blog this year -- it just might end up in my Best Photoshopped Photos of 2009. :lolol:

  • terika83

    wow you had me fooled sandra. The only ones that look fake are the ones of Jay and Selita and Monica and Rocko, but I thought all the rest were real! lol.

    P.S. yeah I've seen your rocsi/prime minister and ursh/meek/chill pic on other sites too

    Wow!

    I don't how I feel about this one. Kinda hoodwinked and bamboozled!

  • http://myspace.com/thegameoncw Bird

    Er um uh are you saying that you pass pics off as legit that you have photoshopped? That's what it sounds like. What's up with that?

  • http://myspace.com/lorettadivine DivineBrown

    Why does Tameka look "lesbun" in that picture?

  • melinla

    Those are good ones - I fI knew how to photoshop i'd been in trouble >:}

  • BayArea

    Sandra just let the cat out of the bag. Now if a celeb is caught up to no good, all they have to say is: THAT PICTURE IS PHOTO SHOPPED SHORTY! Must be nice :)

  • KAT

    LMAO @ sandra! these were some good ones!

  • kwallace577

    Why does Tameka look “lesbun” in that picture?

    dayum you alexyss tylor! look at what you started.

    DEAD @ you divine.

  • prynsexxx

    I remember the WORST Photoshop Sandra did.........

    It was the one with Shavonne (sp) from College Hill. Sandra tried to make her look preggars, gave her ten fangas on one hand......AND she put the hand on backwards! Yall remember that? LOL

  • iscream

    Are you responsible for the Bey & Jay vacation photo's when they were shopping. I swear he looks photoshopped in.

  • Daisy

    @DB now that you mentioned it she does look a lil suspect in that pic..lol

  • Daisy

    Monica knows her hair stays fly 99% of the time. Even if the color is off or to much for me the hair is usually on it. She has always had the im grown and don't give a damn vibe about herself. Works for me.

  • http://myspace.com/lorettadivine DivineBrown

    Lmao @ Weezy!!!

    She does....

    Lesbun cracks me up!

  • http://smokiesays.blogspot.com/ Smokie

    Uhm, why'd you do that Sandra?

  • kwallace577

    @prynn...NOT a backwards photoshopped hand. just...no!!

  • http://myspace.com/tamarlese Peachizz

    LOL Lebun.. LOL LOL Like old country folk.. LOL

  • Shauny

    o.k, the picture of Tameka through me off of the reason I was looking at this post in the first place. She has got to be mad that she was shot looking like that.

    I remember a discussion about Chili being light skinned over the weekend when I peeped in. Unless I'm light skinned (which I have never considered a remote possibility that I am) Chili is definately a brown/dark skinned sista.

    The one of Bey and Jay was done really well.

  • keely107

    But hey the lesbun look is good for Ole Meka, that way we dont mistake her for "looking like a man", it'd just be a lesbun.

  • teecee

    so now we got to question if the photo is real.....

  • Nina

    Sandra - you got some great ps skills. I always wondered why Usher would take a picture with his girlfriend and jumpoff.

  • LB

    I've always said my blog is for entertainment purposes and not to be taken seriously. Haven't I? And if you looked at the photo credits, I always wrote "Photos by" instead of "Photo by" even though it was one photo. :)

    Damn Sandra you are good!!!

    I send you some semi-nude pictures of me, put me on top of Nelly and post them on your site!!!

    Just playing...

  • cahjan

    Shevon might not have 10 fanger in that photo, but her hand is definately backwards...lol!

    Most of the photos that are photoshopped I knew, but a copule you had me fooled.

    Good Job, and shame on you at the same time!

  • LB

    oh ok. i try both and mine never comes out like that lol. i gotta practice

  • indesign18

    Sandra, you did good. I remember earlier in the year I said something about the photoshopped photos and you jumped on me talking about you don't do that kind of stuff, but it's all good we family. But since graphic design is my profession, I knew. But that Usher, Tameka, and Chilli one, you got serious coverage for that one. Go Auntie!

  • dollfacechick

    You forgot to put the one up with the kids from College Hill, where you tried to make it look like she was pregnant. Did you think we forgot about that one Sandra?
