What are some telltale signs that a picture has been photoshopped? Aside from the obvious airbrushing of waterfalls and such, what should be looked for if looking for a photoshopped pic.?

Shadows! It's one of the most reliable proofs that you can check to know if there's something wrong with the picture. It may not apply to every image, but you can still note it.

Check the edges of the picture when in doubt, and something seems fishy. You can zoom in for that if the mistake is not that obvious. Honestly, I find photoshop scary when it concerns sensitive topics and fake news.

I once saw a photoshop where the person wasn't standing on the ground, but hovering a little bit above it. Huge giveaway!

Reversed text is another dead give away. It seems obvious, but if the text is mirrored or flipped in one part of an image, but then it's correct in another part of the image, then you have a good case that the image was doctored.
