'Tis the season for ... Photoshop?
In an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
, The X Factor host Khloé Kardashian
shared the secret of her family's annual Christmas card
: If a family member can't attend the shoot, they get Photoshopped in to make the picture complete.
"We pretend that we're always together," Kardashian said during the interview airing Wednesday. "The powers of cameras and Photoshop."
While the Kardashian clan
can't always be in the same physical space, they do their best to make lasting memories, she says.
Lamar Odom, Kendall Jenner
and Scott Disick
will all be expertly (and digitally) placed in this year's card.
"The older we get the more we stick together. Who knew?," Kardashian said. "I'm surprised Scott’s still around but he's here."
