We all know by now that Kim Kardashian is notorious for using Photoshop to edit her snaps before she posts them to her grid. From the time fans called her out for removing her belly button, to the even wilder time that she photoshopped her sister Khloé's daughter True in replacement of Kylie Jenner's daughter Stormi at Disneyland, the 41-year-old reality star has done it again. But this time, fans have not been as quick to get over it, with many commenting that these edits can cause real-life body issues.

The eagle-eyed spot came from TikTokker and photographer Caroline In The City. Posting a video to her account, she demonstrated how Kim allegedly edited out her trap muscles to make her neck look slimmer. During the video, Caroline showed viewers how using the liquify tool made the water behind her neck (and the apparent Photoshop area) look warped, before revealing what the image would have looked like without the edits.

"As you can see, the water reflection in the background starts to look a lot more natural as well, we don't have that warped effect," she said as she explained her demonstration.

Caroline then compared the Photoshopped image and the "fixed" image with stills from a video the SKIMS founder shared online. "Here's the photo that they released," she added as she pointed out the differences between the two images. "Here is the corrected version. Check out the water patterns in the background."

While many fans commented that the corrected version looks "so much better," others were more concerned about how these edits can be harmful to body image.

"Well this explains why I never like my shoulder in pictures," one user commented, as another said: "This is actually so not okay. You would think that now that they have daughters they would think about the impact of this more."
