In 2019, she posted this picture on Instagram - it appeared edits had been made to her hands and hair.

In 2019, Khloé paired the picture with a caption which reads, "You are so much more powerful than you know! Keep going."

But it was her left thumb that caused the most controversy. It seems to have been duplicated as if there's a second one hiding behind the original. Khloé defended herself in the comments, saying the effect was from an editing app.

"Babe, it's a glitch app. You can't control what it makes a glitch effect to," she wrote. "The fact that y'all think one would Photoshop thumbs concerns me a bit. What the hell are y'all Photoshopping?"

There also appear to be airbrush marks on Kardashian's hair, suggesting she also edited the shape of her hair.

Khloé also got into trouble earlier in 2019 when she posted a picture of herself heading to Diana Ross' birthday party. Again, her hands were the focus of attention.

"'When the legendary Ms Ross invites you to her birthday party, you show UP as best you can. What a beautiful inspiration!! Thank you for having us," Khloé captioned the photo.

However, commenters were quick to zoom in on Khloé's hands again in this picture. Many said there seemed to be too many fingers. While it's possible that she had a similar problem with a glitch app, she did not comment on the speculation.

One person wrote, "Please take a close look at both her hands and tell me I'm not the only one that sees the bad photoshopping," while another commented, "14 fingers?"

She got into hot water once again with this Instagram photo, as people were confounded by her proportions.

The reality star posted this picture of herself in 2019 in a sparkly bodysuit, pairing it with a sparkle emoji in the caption. 

Instagram followers pointed out the weird proportioning, writing, "This looks odd," and "so very strange looking." But one person explained it best, commenting, "Does nobody see that the head does not fit on the body #QueenofPhotoshop."

Kim Kardashian posted this picture of herself strutting in a parking lot to her Instagram in 2018 - but she had an explanation.

The image was supposed to raise awareness for gun control, as she captioned it, "Let's March! @AMarch4OurLives @EveryTown (Wear Orange)"

A closer look at this image hints that it was heavily edited. In the foreground, the sidewalk seems to bend and curve unnaturally, while the car in the background is flattened into what seems like an otherworldly vehicle. 

Kim K had an explanation, however. She said she took the original photo from a fan who added a mirror effect, which distorted the image. 

She caused more controversy when she posted this photo for KKW Beauty with baby Chicago, as her arm didn't look right.

"My heavenly baby!" Kardashian captioned the photo in 2018. "Showing off the new pink shadows in the Flashing Lights Collection wearing Flashy and High Key available at KKWbeauty.com."

Kardashian fans questioned if her arm was edited to appear thinner, however. These seems to be an odd edit in the photo. In the middle of Kim's bicep, there appears to be an indentation, which many believe was a mistake due to photo editing.

As one fan put it simply, "Why does her arm look odd?"

After Kim shared this photo, which was initially posted by her hairstylist Chris Appleton, it sparked more questions about photo editing. This time, her eyes were the focus.

"Laid and stayed," Appleton captioned the photo, which was posted in 2018.

When Kim posted the same picture on her Instagram, however, the photo seemed to be doctored. It's very subtle, but Kim's version of the photo clearly has lighter eyes. Some commenters questioned if she had also edited her nose.

In 2019, Kylie Jenner was criticized after she posted an apparently edited picture during her time in Turks and Caicos.

In the picture, Kylie sits next to her friend Anastasia Karanikolaou. "Her vibe is pretty," Kylie wrote in the caption, pairing it with two blue butterflies. 

But commenters weren't interested in their vibe. Instead, they called attention to the pillow behind the pair because its stripes appeared to be distorted, seemingly a sign that the image was edited.

"Next time you Photoshop your pictures, make sure you're not sitting in front of a pillow with stripes," one person wrote.

Kylie Jenner was accused of editing this photo after it was uploaded to Instagram in 2017, but she shut down the claims.

When Jenner posted the picture in 2017, many pointed out that the curtain seemed to bend and curve as if the picture was stretched to make her waist look smaller. However, Jenner took to social media again to explain that her curtains are just "crooked."

"So this is like my selfie mirror and my Snapchat mirror, so for future, this is a curtain behind me that looks crooked," Jenner said in the Snapchat video

In 2016, she posted this photo to promote Fashion Nova's jeans.

"Obsessed with my new @fashionnova jeans," she captioned the photo.

But fans were quick to point out what seemed like an enlarged backside. They pointed out the belt loop in the center of the jeans looked significantly larger than the one visible at the side.

"Obvious Photoshop. Look how big the pockets and belt loops are," one comment read.

Chef Gordon Ramsay posted this picture of himself with Kris Jenner in 2014 ... but it looked totally different when Jenner later reposted it.

"Great seeing you tonight @krisjenner, can't wait to read the cookbook," Ramsay captioned the photo

When Jenner posted the same photo on her Instagram, however, their faces were noticeably different. In Jenner's version of the photo, both of their faces seem to be airbrushed and much smoother than in the original photo. 

In 2018, the Kardashian and Jenner sisters posed together for a Calvin Klein underwear ad, but people pointed to the unnatural size of one of Kourtney's arms.

"Our new Fall 2018 @calvinklein underwear & jeans campaign," Kim Kardashian captioned the photo on Instagram. "Join Our Family."

People were quick to point out the size of Kourtney Kardashian's arm because it appeared to be edited to look thinner.

However, Calvin Klein posted the same image to their social media and denied the accusation that the picture was doctored. 

"As you'll see from the high-res version of the image, there are no issues with Kourtney's arm," Calvin Klein wrote in a statement to Insider at the time. "However, the light is hitting it which makes it slightly less defined. Unfortunately, when the image is posted to social media in a lower-resolution format, the shape of her arm loses its definition, creating the effect which social media users have commented on."
