Today we are sharing with you the top 10 hilarious photos where cropping changes everything! We’ve all been there. You snap a few pics of a place or some people with the intention of uploading them to social media. But wait – they just aren’t. right. Well, with the cropping here and there those pics are good to go. However, as these following images show, cropping can have a massive impact on the meaning and interpretation of your photos. So, before you crop your next photo, take into consideration some of these interesting cases. Here are the 10 hilarious photos where cropping changes everything!
10: When You See It
Number 1 on the list of 10 Hilarious Photos Where Cropping Changes Everything is about Selfies. They’re taking over social media and this is yet one more example. Likely taken at a party somewhere, what we see is actually the pretty typical shot of two friends putting on a show for the camera. So, why the crop job? After seeing the original, unedited version we all definitely get it now. Having a family member photobomb your selfie-moment while dropping a deuce in the background is definitely crop-worthy. In this instance, I think we can all appreciate the effort.
9: Dressed Down
Well, check out this rather dapper young man. Fully done up in a tux, we imagine this guy is getting all ready for the big prom. The fashionable looking photo takes on a totally cringe-worthy feel, however, when we show you the uncropped version. It appears the man taking the photo has opted for the exact opposite when it comes to making a fashion statement. But Hey, at least he made the right call to put on some underpants before snapping the pic.
If you’ve been on social media for a while, then you’ve run into your share of photos taken at the beach or pool. You know, the ones which also contain the legs of the person taking the pic. They’re about as clichéd as duckface, fingernail art and sunrises. So, what do we have here? It appears to be another pool shot. But wait, the color seems off, almost as if taken with a 1980s polaroid. The uncropped image shows it was all just a joke made by posing your fingers in just the right spot in front of a laptop screen.
7: Working Out
People love posting images related to their workout. From their awesome muscles to the details about how many calories were burned, you likely know a gym nut. Here’s a perfect example. This guy has posted a shot showing off his toned arms while he does curls. But why did he chop his head off? Oh, we see. Since this is actually a photo ripped off Drake’s social media feed, boo, we say, boo.
6: The Set-Up
Oh, what’s this? It appears this person has been caught in a rather embarrassing position of passing out while covered in potato chips. What a slob. Wait, before we like it, something just doesn’t add up. Where are the crumbs? Why are the chip pieces so big? The uncropped photo confirms it. This is a staged photo, all done in the name of gathering ‘likes’. As Donald Trump would say in one of his many tweets, it’s all just sad.
5: Dirty Minds – Hilarious Photos Where Cropping Changes Everything
Wow! what is going on in this backyard? What an incredibly inappropriate picture. We don’t need to go into details about what’s going on here. Or do we? Just so you don’t block us or get into trouble at work, we think we’ll explain. While that shadow is pretty dirty looking, once you see the ‘whole picture’ you’ll understand. In this case, cropping the image to show just the shadow leaves out the fact that it’s all just a rather normal drinking game that’s taking place.
4: What’s That?
If you’ve visited our site, then you know we love anything to do with UFOs. So, is this a case of alien craft visiting earth? Perhaps it’s some sort of ghost ship sailing off into the distant fog. Whatever it is, it’s kind of haunting to look at. Unfortunately, it’s a whole lot more vanilla than any of those things. You see, what we have here is simply the top of San Francisco’s Sutro tower peeking through the low clouds.
3: Monkey See…
What we have here appears to be your typical sight-seeing tourist picture. After all, it’s just a lady standing in front of some ornate structure, right? Well, as you can guess by now this image is cropped. So, what could possibly be so bad that a large part of this image was cut out? How about one monkey picking bugs off the Bu*t of another monkey? We get the cropping thing now, yet this little bit of monkey business does make for a rather humorous image.
Whether a vacation, honeymoon or some romantic retreat, couples head off to do things together all the time. The result is we often get bombarded on social media by images of the two sharing a romantic moment or two. Take this couple for example, having a kiss while riding on horseback through the water. Straight from the cover of a romance novel this image seems perfect – except for the fact that it’s cropped a bit awkwardly. Once you see the whole image, you’ll understand why. Nothing removes the romance and replaces it with awkwardness and discomfort quite like a third-wheel who appears to be on the verge of drowning while attempting to keep the horses in place.
1: NSFW? Hilarious Photos Where Cropping Changes Everything
Let’s do this one in reverse. Take a look at this uncropped photo. It’s simply too buddies acting like idiots and posing for the camera. Want to see how a simple crop can add a whole new level of disturbing to this? Here you go. Boy those facial expressions sure do take on an entirely different meaning now. After cropping off a bit so you can’t see what their hands are doing, we’ve single-handedly turned a friendly moment into one which verges on being NSFW. You are welcome.
That’s the end of 10 hilarious photos where cropping changes everything! So, having thought a bit more about it, can you think of some personal examples of photos that have got you into trouble because you used the crop feature a little too much or maybe not enough? In such cases, what do you guys think, would it be better to just scrap the photo altogether or post it totally unedited in its original condition? Let us know your response.
