Another day, another Photoshop fail.

This time, fashion retailer Banana Republic is at fault, seemingly erasing a model's entire knee in an image included in its new newsletter which was emailed out to subscribers this morning.

The space in which her right knee should be has been replaced by, what seems to be, visible Photoshop swipes, transforming her shapely leg into what looks like a stiff wooden tree stump.

Unlikely: Banana Republic has seemingly committed yet another Photoshop fail, airbrushing a model's knee entirely off her right leg (left). The effect appears to be visible through the odd editing strokes that appear instead

Spotted by Photoshop Disasters, the retouching is made even more noticeable when comparing the model's legs with one another.

The left is a far more realistic shape
and although her knee is hidden behind the male model standing behind
her, the leg is curved rather than plank-like.

Her skin's shine is also visible on the untouched leg, a very different sight to the brunette stunner's right leg.

It is not the first time the chain store has seemingly committed such sloppy Photoshop jobs.

An image of a man's pants was
seemingly altered in order to eliminate a lump that had originally shown
through at the man's upper thigh.

It had appeared on the company's website in 2010.

Another
image, spotted on the site, showed a woman holding a black grey panel.

It seemed that photo editors had neglected to eliminate the random image from the shot
before it went live on the site.

But it had been fellow retailer Forever 21 that originally left one of its model knee-less.

The clothing chain seemingly brushed out a model's knee on its website.

And it was only in March of this year.

That all-familiar fuzzy Photoshop wash was left hovering over the space instead.

The new image comes amid energetic discussion surrounding Photoshop practices after an anonymous digital retoucher, who often Photoshops the world's top supermodels, told BuzzFeed that advertisements are even more airbrushed than magazine shoots, especially 'ridiculous' mascara campaigns.

She said earlier this month: 'I remove veins and freckles and moles and bags under the eyes all the time. We often remove body hair, subdue wrinkles, whiten teeth, pop the eyes. We also smooth kneecaps and veins in the hands.'
