Have you ever taken a photo and felt something wasn’t right with the finished result? Graphic editor and Twitter user James Fridman can help you out. Fridman is a social media giant with more than three million followers across his social networks. People submit their photo requests to him, asking for his Photoshop expertise to fix the mistakes on their pictures. What results is often a humorous play on words that produces a hilarious picture. You may see some examples of James Fridman’s work below. You can also find his work at his official website here. Check out a video playlist featuring the best of James Fridman below.
One might wonder why people would willingly submit their photos to public humiliation. Rarely does Fridman take a photo and enhance it beauty-wise. Instead, he makes fun of beauty standards and creates hilarious meme-worthy edits. In fact, Fridman has a warning-of-sorts on his accounts warning those who are submitting photos and there are terms of service involved. Still, people submit photos waiting for Fridman to work his magic.
Some might think that submitting photos for Fridman to edit would cause some to shy away, but the submissions keep coming. People seem to have a greater sense of humor than they do vanity or pride, keeping Fridman busy with submission requests. Here’s the note Fridman leaves for those interested in requesting his Photoshop service.
“Do not submit any personal photos that you do not want to be made public. Terms and conditions apply.”
Fridman’s terms and conditions are in-depth and require users to hand over all rights to the photos. Those who submit their photo for editing are prohibited from reviewing the photo before it is published. Still, Fridman has yet to edit a photo in a way that would be considered offensive and they are always more humorous than humiliating.
