Kim Kardashian is not afraid of photoshopping if it means getting a job done more easily.  

The Kardashian family Christmas card is always a dramatic affair in the famous clan, and this year Kim decided to just pose with her immediate family. And even that was an anxiety-fueled event. In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Kardashian revealed that her oldest daughter, North West, was edited into the family photo after throwing a tantrum. 

It's not the first time the family has had to work around their children's behavior to get the perfect photo. During Halloween, baby Chicago was so afraid of her dad Kanye West dressed as Dino from The Flintstones, she had to be photoshopped into the family photo. Unfortunately, that photoshop hack job was not as seamless as the Christmas one. 

Here's the family Christmas photo. If no one had said anything, I'd never be able to tell that North was photoshopped in. 

While the Kardashian family Christmas card usually features all members of the huge, blended family, this year Kim decided to go small-scale. Even scaling down the card to just her immediate family, Kanye West, and the four kids, it was still impossible to get everyone smiling and sitting pretty at the same time. So she used a little editing magic to get it just right. 

In a recent interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Kardashian revealed the secret. 

Kardashian assured the audience that the small family photo wasn't due to any family feuds, she just wanted to make it easier for herself. But even this small photo shoot was near-impossible. "North was having a day, so she refused to be in the shoot. So I said, 'Fine, you're not going to be in the card.'" 

Of course, the six-year-old felt left out the next day, so Kardashian wrangled the photographer into getting a photo of North on the card.

During Halloween, Chicago was photoshopped into the family photo, and people were in awe at the hack editing job. 

Kardashian revealed on her Instagram the challenge of getting all four kids looking happy in their costumes. "This family pic was such a challenge because Chicago was so scared of Dino! LOL We tried to explain and show her that it was just daddy but she didn’t get the concept yet! So shout out to the photographer for editing her in & making our family Flintstones dreams come true!" 

Unfortunately, the editing looked awful, and fans roasted it. 

People were massively disappointed, and couldn't help but make fun of how badly it ended up. 

"Did they edit her in using Snapchat?" one person questioned on Twitter. Luckily, the new family photo looks much better, so they clearly found a photographer who knew what they were doing. Anyone could have told you that Chicago was photoshopped into this picture, but North West in the Christmas card was much more discrete and seamless. 

One person understood that North was having a day, not only because she's six years old, but also because she's Kanye West's daughter. 

Kanye West is infamously a bit of a diva, so it only makes sense that North have some of his personality. Kim has said before that North is "Kanye's twin." One person joked on Twitter, "So North was having a Kanyeday." Luckily, Kim kept her in the photo regardless of her little temper tantrum.
