This Man Deliberately Misinterprets Photoshop Requests, And The Results Are Hilarious

These are too funny.

We’ve all been there. An otherwise perfect photo made unshareable because of one tiny thing that, if we were any good at Photoshop, would be a piece of cake to solve.

Well, be careful what you wish for. Meet James Fridman, a man who has a talent for altering photos and has chosen to use that power to do not quite what you were hoping he would do.

If you ask Fridman to work his Photoshop magic to give you a mullet, for example, you might end up with this:

Or, if you wish the writing on your shirt were different, you may end up with this …

Even more than his knack for altering photos, Fridman’s true talent lies in misinterpreting Photoshop requests in the most hilarious way possible.

“I did some funny edits for friends and family, and they ended up on the internet,” Fridman told the Telegraph. “Apparently, people found it quite entertaining and asked for more – that’s how I ended up creating my Twitter account.”

And we are all so lucky he did.

Now, in the past, this trend was more of a way to make fun of people who asked the internet for help in altering their photos.

But considering people have to read Fridman’s terms and conditions (or just follow him), those who submit photos to him know he isn’t going to take them that seriously.

It has become a sort of comedic take on the culture of excessive social media sharing.

He’s even dipped into some animated updates, which are just as funny as his stills.

He does occasionally send some serious notes on self-image and has refused to do certain projects, like this one.

Here’s another request he refused (for a good reason).

Mainly he just makes really funny photos.

With really good messages.

If you’re looking for someone who’ll just do exactly the type of photo cropping and tweaking you ask for, Fridman is NOT your guy.

If you want your senior photo fixed, for real, you probably don’t want to send it to Fridman.

With more than 1.5 million followers, hopefully he’ll have material for quite a while.

You should follow him on Twitter for a daily dose of laughter. It’ll do you good.

In addition to giving you a good laugh, his Photoshop fixes often contain clever, powerful messages.

And some equally clever social commentary.

There’s no request too small. Fridman will find a way to honor a requested change in his own special way.

You’re sure to shake your head at some of the hilarious ways Fridman decides to honor people’s requests.

He has his terms and conditions laid out on his website, so people definitely know what they’re in for when submitting images to him.

In other words: Be careful what you wish for when you send a request to Fridman!

Really, don’t say you weren’t warned!

It turns out, making us laugh on Twitter isn’t the only way Fridman is giving back to the world. He’s also behind a new London-based foundation — The James Fridman Foundation — that aims to help kids and young people cope with the challenges of modern-day society. It encourages young folks to share their stories, thoughts and ideas.
