Britney Spears has been looking better than ever recently, and sharing the pictures online to prove it! But is her body transformation thanks to the gym or creative editing? Photoshop expert Alan Barry exclusively told RadarOnline.com that he believes some of the images might have been altered before getting posted.
During a recent vacation to Hawaii, Spears shared these side-by-side images showing off her toned bikini body. However, Barry believes poor editing is obvious in the image.

"The line of her torso, if you take a look at her right arm and you trace that line down to the point where it intersects with this guy in the background – at that point, that line becomes incredibly straight and then there's all kinds of stuff going on in that guy's right shoulder," the esteemed photo expert told Radar. "He standing in open sunlight. There would be no reason for him to have any kind of shadowing on his shoulder. So it appears that somebody, for some reason, decided that that line of her body needed to be straighter and that looks like it was manipulated to me. It's just unnatural."

"On the other side, there's a lot going on with the girl's hand in the background – it's really got a lot of signal noise going on there that makes me think something was done on that side as well. It's just a mess," he continued. "On the other side, they made her arm completely straight and on this side maybe somebody said 'I don't have the skills or the time to try to do that so they took a chunk out of her body. It's really weird.'"
While the 34-year-old's body was untouched in in this summery image, her too-perfect face raises some red flags, Barry revealed.

"I think her face was cleaned up," he said, claiming Spears, 34, "looks like a teenager. There's only one way you achieve that and that's by some type of manipulation of the image and that's what went on here. I don't think that's her face at all."
Flaunting her abs again, the "Oops I Did It Again" singer shared this photo about six weeks ago. However, Barry is suspicious that her stomach isn't as defined in real life.

"There's a lot of unusual highlights on her abdomen. I don't know how it would get there, right at the top of the shorts on her waist. It looks like somebody took a highlighter and drew it in," the expert told Radar.
Perhaps the most bizarre of all, Spears posted this mid-split gym selfie about nine weeks ago. Although she looks amazing at first glace, Barry claimed, the strange marks on her right arm are a dead Photoshop giveaway!
"I don't understand what that is on her right arm, but I can tell you that when you blow this up, it's really a mess. It took me aback, because it looked like there had been a lot of editing going on with that," he said. "If you're going to edit it, why not edit it all out? It would have been an easier job. It looks like someone started to edit that but didn't go all the way."
Still, not all of Spears' photos have been altered! In this photo she shared yesterday, Barry explained that he did not see any signs that the pop singer's body or face was changed in any way. Although many questioned her thigh gap in the image, the expert said that perhaps her thighs are just "naturally" that way!
