She's not that good, really.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.
I love sarcasm. It's like punching someone in the head ... only with words

Telling digitally manipulated a.k.a. "Photoshopped" images is quite easy if you know what to look for.  A lot of the techniques date back to around 17 years ago and were popularised on a Singapore based photography forum.  It's really easy to tell the amount of manipulation as the usual tell tale signs include:

Artificially "too sharp" eyelashes and irises.
Eyes that are too large and or perfectly symmetrical.
Soft focus on the facial and neck skin yet showing small details in the clothing.
The over use of high key lighting methods. (It hides skin blemishes)
Exposure variations, this one is hard to explain, but by looking at the shadow depths and foreground and exposure levels it's not too hard to tell if a shot has been manipulated in the exposure area.
Unnatural differential focus techniques.  Digitally added differential focus looks fake but most people can't spot this one. It's a popular technique used with some phone apps.
Perfect face symmetry. The usual give away is a "feathering" type filter that's applied to the jawbone and cranium leading to a somewhat smoothed transition zone. Depending on the skill of the graphics manipulator and software it ranges from easy to spot to very difficult.
Limb stretching. Usually quite easy to spot but if it's done by a professional graphic artist it can be very hard to spot unless you know the tell tale signs, for example slightly smooth leg edges or very slight colour variations.

There's a few dozen other giveaways as well.  Once you know what you're looking for it's quite easy to spot the majority of faked images.
