There is no doubt that graphic editing software, when used correctly, can be super convincing or even hilarious. One name you might not have heard of is James Fridman, a British graphic designer who's known for editing photos of people (at their request) with a comedic effect. With over 1.62M followers on Twitter, this Photoshop master is the best in the business. Let’s have a look at how he replies to people's requests in the most hilarious way.
You Didn’t Mention Which Character’
So, this lady is a big fan of Harry Potter and wanted to be like one of the characters from the hit novel/film series. Perhaps, Hermione Granger…
Given that she didn’t mention which character she wanted to be, Fridman decided to make her look like Dobby the House Elf.
Adjusting the Picture
The photoshop master James Fridman was asked by this young woman to just make a little adjustment so that it looks like she is holding the cliff. It sure was a harmless request.
It was a simple task for Fridman, right? Well, he made her wish come true by making that “little” adjustment. Don’t blame him, she asked for it.
Sheep or Ship?
This attractive lady from Spain had a photo that was already good enough to upload. But she wanted to make it more adorable and asked for Fridman’s help.
She wanted to touch the “ship” and Fridman (being a true gentleman) couldn’t say no to her request. He went through all the trouble of showing her having fun touching the ship. The photoshopped picture can make you a fan of Fridman because he took attention to detail to the next level by putting scuba diving masks on the girl and even the sheep.
Dreams Do Come True
This young lady always wanted to be an astronaut and be up in the space. She asked Fridman if he could photoshop her get into space.
The problem was that she didn’t specifically mention which space. So, Fridman did the most obvious thing and photoshopped her on the space bar.
Looking Cool and Hot
These young ladies wanted to look cooler than they already are. They wanted to show the world that they are always prepared to face any difficult situation and they like to play with fire.
Fridman helped them show the world exactly what they requested. Although he admits that they are quite badass girls, he did advise them not to swim in the water.
Well, James Fridman gave a life lesson to this woman who was most probably feeling a bit jealous. We are sure not many people could’ve noticed that woman staring at the couple, but the lady made sure that this “issue” came to everyone’s attention.
She asked Fridman to make it look like the lady on the left is not staring at them. He took no time in making her wish come true.
Doing Exactly As Asked
This is one of those pictures for which we can’t blame Fridman for not doing as asked. In fact, he did exactly as asked but we are not sure the girl was too happy with the final result.
She wanted her face smaller than her bf’s face, so Fridman did what he knows best. Great job man!
Goose 1 : Guy With a Silly Hat 0
This is super hilarious because of two reasons. First one is that this guy tried to be cocky and got served really bad and the second one is the reaction on goose’s face.
Fridman is certainly against animal abuse and he certainly made a statement with this photoshopped picture.
Taking Attractiveness To Next Level
This young lady didn’t like her round face and requested the British graphic designer to make her face look less round.
He knew how to make her head look less round and came up with an alteration that is super hilarious.
Playing With The Highlighter
Although her picture looked just fine, she wanted the help of technology to make it more appealing.
Fridman, a person who is a fan of photoshop technology, did what he has been doing for years. He certainly made her photo more appealing.
A Fun Date
Apparently, this girl was feeling jealous of the girl in a violet skirt or felt that she didn’t belong in the picture. So, she asked Fridman to take her out.
Well, she wasn’t specifically asking ‘take her out of the picture’ and Fridman thought the requester was trying to make him date her friend. He did exactly as asked and took her friend out on a date. It seems like they have bonded quite easily.
"Pet” Me In A Bugatti
This is what happens when you don’t pay much attention to little things – Just a single word can lead to all this. Instead of using “put,” he unintentionally went with “pet” and this is what he got.
Well, at least now he has a proof that indeed shows he has a Bugatti. It doesn’t matter if the Bugatti belongs to his owner.
How can one make a photo of bf and gf less awkward? Well, you can make them hold hands to show the romantic side of their relationship, right?
That’s what the requester thought as well. But the problem was that he didn’t describe in detail what he meant when he asked: “make it look like me and my girlfriend are holding hands.” They are surely holding severed hands, so we guess he got what he wanted. They look so cute together.
A Rare Instance When Fridman Said “No”
You will notice pretty soon that Fridman doesn’t say no to simple requests made by people. But there is always a first time, right?
This guy just wanted a photo of him with his German shepherd and requested Fridman to remove the “ugly” dog in the background. We just wish Fridman should’ve removed him from the picture for calling that cute doggo ugly.
Jim At Work
Jim was just having fun at the wedding and he didn’t care a lot about everyone around him. When the photo was taken, Jim was captured as a free soul that was having a great time.
This requester wanted Fridman to make Jim look more formal. After looking at the second photo, we can all agree on the fact that Jim can’t look more formal than that.
Erasing the “Trash Can”
We must step forward to clarify that Fridman did absolutely nothing wrong here. In fact, he did exactly as asked without even asking a single question.
This young lady wanted to remove the “trash can” from her photo and Fridman didn’t want to disappoint his fan. So, he did what she asked for and removed the trash can. Moral of the story is that you have to be specific with your demands.
Unprecedented Crime That Shook The Nation’
This guy just wanted his photo to look like a crime scene. As mentioned earlier, you have to be specific when it comes to making a request to Fridman.
The photoshopster was kind enough to make the photo seem like a crime scene, but the board that says “keep off the grass” added more comedic effect into it.
A Full Stadium Experience
We dare you to find this girl and her father in the second photo. It took us almost a year to find them.
She just wanted to have a full stadium experience and Fridman delivered exactly as asked. It could’ve been different if he had asked: “could you make it look like there are people in the background?”
This guy wanted to make this photo his profile picture on tinder and didn’t want to confuse others over which one he is. So, he requested Fridman to do something about it.
Well, the photoshop expert made ABSOLUTELY sure that no one has any trouble in knowing which one is him. This is pure savage stuff.
Don’t Want The Same Pose
This girl spent hours looking at her photo and thought that people will find it odd that both of them have the same pose in the picture (like everyone has spare time at their hands).
She requested Fridman to make it look like they don’t have the same pose and he did exactly as asked. Changing one woman’s pose could’ve done the job, but he made sure the other one has a different pose as well.
To be honest, we think that her friends already knew she was lying when she told them she went to the “Eyefell tower.”
Well, Fridman was quick to catch her mistake and did exactly what she had asked for. Surely, eyes are falling off the tower and it looks quite realistic.
Inspired Photoshop Work
Remember that famous meme in which a guy who is with his GF or wife is looking back at another woman who just passed by them. Well, this photoshop work is definitely inspired by that meme.
This girl just wanted to upload a photo in which her brother isn’t ruining a near-perfect snap. So, she asked Fridman to make it look like her brother is having a good time. We can tell for sure that he had a really good time.
'If You Can't Beat Them, Make Them Join You’
You must’ve heard the common saying “if you can't beat them, join them’? Well, it doesn’t hold true in this person’s case. He is the only redhead in his family and wanted to fit in with them.
Instead of making his hair black or coming up something else, Fridman decided to go with another common saying “if you can’t beat them, make them join you.” He surely can’t complain now that he is the only redhead in the family. That is certainly a strong case of family unity.
This lady has some sort of inferiority complex because her bottom is good enough and yet she wanted to make Kim Kardashian feel jealous.
Instead of opting for some implants, she approached Fridman and he didn’t disappoint her at all. He gave her a bottom that would even make a hippopotamus have an inferiority complex.
Elastigirl (Mrs. Incredible)
Remember the Elastigirl (Mrs. Incredible) from the hugely popular animated film The Incredibles? As we know that the Elastigirl can easily stretch any part of her body, this woman is a bit different than her. She can only stretch her right leg.
Fridman can be really brutal sometimes and this photoshopped work just shows he can be really creative when it comes to adding humorous effect into his work. We’re not sure if Natasha was happy with these results or not.
A Perfect Family Photo
This young girl had an innocent request. She just wanted to be in the frame of a photo that looks perfect for a Christmas Card. She asked Fridman if he could make her fit into the frame as well.
He did as asked but the only problem is that her mom and dad are no longer in the photo. We just hope that she sends this picture back to him and ask him to fit her mom and dad into the frame. It would be fun to see what happens next.
Corn Dog Lovers
So the girlfriend is like a perfectionist. She didn’t want to upload the original photo as the almost-eaten corn dog was disturbing her. So, she went to the person who could easily fix the problem.
Fridman did exactly as requested, but there was a slight problem; the corn dog was covering that girl’s boyfriend face. Well, at least she got what she wanted.
The requester really liked this picture, but she didn’t want that man on the right to be in the picture as it looks like he’s peeing on his kids. We must admit that it indeed looks like he is emptying himself there.
So, she asked Fridman and the photoshop master knew what had to be done. He made sure it was not embarrassing for the girls or the guy on the right. A lesson for you to learn is that some things are better left alone, don’t you think.
'Sorry, We’re Closed’
It seems like you cannot find another way around Fridman when it comes to making a request. This beautiful lady just wanted her boyfriend’s legs to close.
She asked Fridman to do something about it and he did nothing else than just hang the ‘Closed’ board on his legs.
This girl wanted to add more thrill into her picture to make it look like a photo from a Hollywood action movie. So, she asked for the expertise of Fridman.
He didn’t disappoint her and placed a train behind her, but now it seems like a scene from a movie for kids.
This woman wanted some free work done. Instead of telling Fridman that she isn’t going to pay anything, she told him that she is a big fan of his work and wants him to clean the stone wall for her.
As we know by now that Fridman is a true gentleman, he couldn’t say no to her. So, the kind-hearted guy went there and cleaned the stone wall for her. We hope that she gave him something in return…a kiss on the cheek or a hug!
A Caring Boyfriend
We all see it in romantic movies that a woman feels cold and the man gives her his jacket/coat. This is a different kind of romantic story.
The caring boyfriend was worried about his girlfriend’s bare feet and although he didn’t do anything about it while having their photo taken, he thought “it is never too late”. So, he went to Fridman and asked for his help. The rest is history.
Fridman has shown us by now that he has great humor, but we didn’t know that he is pretty good at making a statement as well.
When this young guy wanted black man gun in his hand along with gold chains, Fridman delivered it but with a touch of his own unique style.
Turned Into A Mermaid
We have left the best photo for the last. It is so hilarious because of the fact that she was even willing to pay for it. However, Fridman believes in humor more than money
The lady wanted Fridman to turn her into a mermaid. She even gave a suggestion to use whichever picture that would be best for it. Fridman may have disappointed her with the final product, but he didn’t disappoint us at all.
Hungry For Love
We have to give a standing ovation to Fridman for this masterpiece. This guy, Oleg, wanted to be at the Titanic (ship) so that he could find the love of his life. He also mentioned that he is hungry for love.
Fridman went through all the hassle of finding a café that is named after Titanic. We can’t say Fridman didn’t deliver what Oleg wanted. In fact, he over-delivered here.
You’re Looking “Grate”
So the lady on the right is a bit jealous of her friend because both of them love one boy. So, she decided to take an edge over her competition by taking the help of the Photoshop master.
She wanted to look grate and that’s what she got. No questions asked. We are sure that guy is a cook and has a weird fetish of culinary stuff. It is because that’s the only possible scenario for him to love her.
Words matter and this photo show how much it is important to know where to use the right words. Instead of using words like “can you add a tank behind me?” he went with “can you add me behind a tank?”
See, just some reshuffling of a couple of words could’ve changed everything. As we’ve known by now, Fridman is really brutal when it comes to people not using the right words. However, he added the requester behind the tank quite gracefully.
Use Your Word Wisely
This lovely girl, Leah, requested Fridman to do some photoshop magic so that the dustbin and the flamingo aren’t behind her.
However, she said nothing about the dustbin and the flamingo being in front of her.
Fridman is the best at reversing the roles and this is exactly what he did here as well. The young lady wanted Fridman to put a smile on the innocent-looking monkey.
As the monkey looks already puzzled at seeing a crazy lady smile in front of an object (her mobile), Fridman decided to change the roles. It looks more fitting now.
You Are Epic’
This guy thought that the woman behind him was in his way to achieving “more epicness.” He asked Fridman to remove the lady.
The photoshop maestro made absolutely sure that there is no picture more epic on the internet than this one.
Lady in the Background
Fridman was asked to remove the lady in the background. She looks so harmless, right? That’s what he thought as well.
We are so happy he placed her at the center of the couple and look at that adorable Spiderman backpack.
