Be careful what you wish for. That’s what you have to keep in mind when talking to Photoshop Wizard James Fridman. Sometimes, it feels like James is the incarnation of the Monkey’s Paw that makes you be careful with how you phrase your wishes.
Whatever the truth might be, this Prankmaster entertains us all by taking people’s requests to edit their pictures quite literally. This guy is just like the magic wish-granting funny photoshop genie – he’ll give you EXACTLY what you asked for but in a twisted kind of way, deliberately delivering you the best photoshop fails ever.
Just take a look at the photoshopped pics below to see what I’m talking about. And if you’re too lazy to scroll down, I’ll give you a hint – if you’d make a typo and ask for an Eyefell tower instead of Eiffel in the background of your picture, you’ll be definitely getting a tower with eyes falling off of it.
Have a pic that you’d like to submit to this photo manipulation genius? Ask James for his help on Twitter, but be careful what you ask for, you may just get the funny fails you’ve asked for! P.S. Don’t submit any personal photos that you do not want to be made public.
We’ve collected some of his best newest work, so scroll down and enjoy!
James, also known as the Photoshop wizard who has been trolling people longer than we could remember, has become notorious for his comedic photo edits and blatant misinterpretations.
“I don’t consider myself a graphic designer, it is more of a hobby”, he told Telegraph. When he first started using image manipulation software, it was something new and not as widespread as it is now, so everyone was up for the experiment.
James initially “did some funny edits for friends and family, and they ended up on the internet. Apparently, people found it quite entertaining and asked for more” and, as you’d imagine, the rest is history.
But the graphic designer is well aware of the humorous impact he has on social media. “Entertainment accounts cater to a wider audience, delivering current news and addressing social issues wrapped in humour. It makes it easier to work through sensitive subjects,” James explained.
When it comes to getting offended by James’ mischievous edits, the designer believes that “it’s now a trend to get offended by almost everything.” Having said that, I am sure he has nothing but good intentions and his fan club of 2 million Instagram followers is proof of that.
