Hilarious Pranks: Photoshop Artist Deliberately Misunderstands People
Photoshop artist James Fridman regularly receives Photoshop requests which he deliberately misunderstands to prank people – the results are hilarious!
If you've ever taken a picture on which you looked great but someone else or something in the background didn't quite look right, you know how tempting it is to photoshop the hell out of said snap. Just like influencers do. Many people rely on Photoshop artist James Fridman to do the job – he has a little fun with his customers' pictures and pranks them by deliberately misunderstanding their requests! Lucky for us, he shares his hilarious Photoshop art on his Twitter account. Are you ready for the results?
#1 Size Matters
Not quite sure about the request, but the execution is on point.
In this Photoshop masterpiece, Fridman photoshopped the wrong dude out of the picture ... or did he cut the right guy out of her life after all?
#3 Photoshop Creme de la Creme
When you first behold this artwork, you might be wondering "Well, what's so special about this?" But as you take your time, inspecting every inch of Fridman's original work, you discover a tiny "F U" in the lower half of the picture. Her hand might not be holding her middle finger up, but her foot surely is.
#4 Critical Approach Conveyed Through Photoshop
Well, think about what the background would look like, if "the guy watering the plants in the background" didn't do his job? Fridman doesn't simply do his job, he excels at it. Or, as Twitter user @setrashx comments: "u're reallu good at ps."
#5 Photoshopped Into a Different Reality
Imagine yourself into a living reality that's completely different from the one you're currently in. Or let Fridman involuntarily photoshop you into one. Perfect.
#6 Say no More
Yeah, taking pics on public transportation is usually a bit awkward. Lucky for this user, Fridman comes to her rescue and simply photoshops the train pole into her hands. That's exactly what she wanted, right?
#7 What's Wrong With the Lake?
I didn't know lakes weren't a cool background. Then again, I'm not a member of Gen Z, so what do I know.
#8 When You Can't Chill About a Crooked Bow Tie
Look, mommy, I'm flying! Also: Props to Fridman for making his dad's legs and hand look super realistic.
#9 Taking a Snap in Nature
That must have been exactly what she had in mind, though! Or do you think Fridman wanted to troll this woman and her Photoshop request...
#10 Photoshopped Into the Future
Always think twice before sending a request to the Photoshop magician!
#11 Your Wish is His Command
Her face didn't even look round in the first place! Fridman still altered the image she sent him and did just what she wished for. Kinda mean, though...but you gotta know what you're in for when you want Fridman to edit your selfie.
#12 Every Photoshop Request is Executed With Precision
You want to touch the Eiffer Tower? Why not become the Eiffel Tower? Be the Eiffel Tower. Namaste.
Would you ever send Fridman one of your pics? We'd be curious what he'd read into your request!
