About

Emmanuel Macron's Official Portrait Photoshop Battle refers to the spread of photoshopped images of the official portrait of French president Emmanuel Macron after it was posted to the internet in late June of 2017.

Origin

On June 29th, 2017, Emmanuel Macron officially released his Presidential Portrait in a tweet[1] that gained over 30,000 retweets and 92,000 likes (portrait shown below).



Spread

Shortly after Macron posted the picture, Twitter account @Topito_com[2] posted a template version for future photoshops (shown below, left). Shortly after, Twitter user @LeMendibilien[3] posted a photoshop of Macron as Kate Winslet's character in iconic scene from Titanic, gaining over 220 retweets and 670 likes (shown below, right). Several other photoshops were posted to Twitter that day, resulting in a Twitter Moment.[4]



Meanwhile, a thread about the image was posted to /r/PhotoshopBattles[5] and gained 148 points. There the top posts featured Macron with his shirt unbuttoned (shown below, left), and as a French stereotype (shown below, right).
