These People Asked For Their Pictures To Be Photoshop And Received Hilarious Results

Nowadays, since every phone has a camera, we have become used to documenting our lives on a daily basis. Many pictures are taken, but most of them are nowhere close to being Instagram worthy. Even when we get lucky and take the perfect shot, there is usually some tiny thing that ruins it. It might be something in the background or just a tiny little detail, like a wardrobe malfunction, and once you see it, it becomes so annoying that you wish it would just disappear. Well, it can – and there are experts in the field that can help you have the perfect picture! However, not every Photoshop expert is actually out there to help you, especially a man on Twitter named James Fridman. Here are some of the best examples of people asking James for Photoshop help and receiving hilarious photos in return!

Crooked bow tie

It could’ve been the perfect family photo – if it wasn’t for the son’s crooked bow tie. Apparently, there are two ways to fix it – the obvious one being, straightening the actual tie, and the other one being, rotating the boy until the tie is straight. In any case, the tie is straight, just not sure if the father prefers the result of the alteration or if he started to appreciate the original more.

Museum setting

Twitter

Careful what you wish for, you might just get it; or try to explain your wishes better! We are pretty sure that this is not the outcome that this guy wanted when he asked for a museum setting, but he did get what he asked for. Maybe even more, since they will be immortalized and available for generations to follow.

The other guy

Twitter

The perfect setting for a holiday photo of a couple – the beach, the sea, the scenic village in the background and the guy in the white hat. Well, minus the guy in the white hat. So, who is the other guy in the white hat? Apparently, the one who got removed from the photo. Good job though.

Gondola ride in Venice

Twitter

When you visit some famous tourist locations, such as Venice, you have to take some memorable photos to remind you of the visit. A gondola ride through the Venetian canals seems like the perfect setting, as long as your spouse is not wearing the same outfit as the gondolier! But, that’s an easy fix. Hm, something still seems strange, just cannot make out what.

Human golf tee

Twitter

Many times, the result of a job very much depends on the clarity of the instructions. When you are acting as a human golf tee, the first thing that comes to mind is not that your buddy will hit the perfect shot, but that he might hit something else… or should we say someone else. So, the result might not be what the guy wanted, but quite expected.

Not obvious enough?

Twitter

Different people look at things differently. The buckle on this guy’s belt was already rather large, but for whatever the reason, he wanted it even larger. And that’s what he got. Now, they have to support it with two hands. Must be a very proud rodeo fan or bull-rider, just hope he’s not trying to (over)compensate for the lack of trophies.

In the tree

Twitter

Prepositions in English language can be an issue for the foreign speaking people. But, for native speakers, they should be easily understood and used. Or should they? Do you want to be in the tree or on the tree? Well, sometimes it is easier to climb the tree than to edit the photo, because you might end up on the tree instead of in it. Looks cool, though.

Starting point

Twitter

There are certain locations that make the perfect setting for certain types of photos, like supporting (or pushing, depending on your preference) the Leaning Tower of Pisa or touching the tip of the Eiffel Tower. It might not be easy to take the shot, but after a few tries, you should be good. Or ask for the help of an expert to tweak it to perfection. Of course, you have to have a solid starting point, or the result might not be what you were expecting.

The wedding photo

Twitter

Weddings are a very special event in everybody’s life, so wedding photos have to be perfect. You should not allow a petty thing like a car to ruin the perfect photo in front of a beautiful building, right? If only the car could somehow disappear. Well, if you strike a pose and stretch your arms and legs a bit, anything is possible, especially with the appropriate wedding dress.

Splitting hairs

Twitter

Surely it was easier for this young guy to remove the broom before taking the photo, than to retouch it after it was done. But, he asked for it and he got what he deserved. Not only was he lazy, but not so accurate in his request, since if had mentioned the Windex along with the broom, he might have gotten what he hoped for. Shame for such a modern hairdo.

Height problem

Twitter

When you care so much to have the perfectly aligned photo, perhaps you should invest a bit more into preparations before taking one. Otherwise, it might not be so easy to adjust it later. You can make things even by extending or reducing their length. This time, the editor decided to make things shorter. And some paid by losing a bit of length from their heads.

Comfort before looks

Twitter

Some people prefer comfort to looks. Until it is time to take a photo. Then it turns out not to be such a good idea. Especially if you have issues with your shoes and prefer to go barefoot. But, it can be easily fixed – just borrow shoes from a friend. If he is a gentleman, it should be no problem. The only question remaining is what is he going to do now?

Square (in the) pants

Twitter

Once the photo is taken, people usually find something they wish to remove from it, something that they did not foresee looking odd in it. Removing is easy, right? Sure, like this phone, just bad luck that it happened to be in the pocket that was removed with it, too. Are torn jeans in fashion these days?

Sign

Twitter
Another one of those photos that have to be executed perfectly to make sense. Or, if you fail in your tries to get the perfect one, you could ask someone to help you achieve your intended goal. Just be very specific what you want, since having people decide for you might not end up in your perfect vacation photo. Quite the contrary.

Point of view

Twitter

In some cases, what makes the perfect photo is the point of view. Same thing will look differently from different angles, having light and shadows in different places. But, not only that makes a difference. Focus plays an important role, too, since what you see and what camera sees might not be the same, especially if you’re wearing prescription glasses. Stay focused, have a friend take the photo, and don’t let the experts mess with you.

Value

Twitter

Student days are the best, despite the conditions you live in and crappy cars you drive. Not much to worry about, just have to study. What comes after is way more serious, so much that you wish you knew it before, so you could have enjoyed the worry-free times more. Or an expert can help you turn the memory of happy times into a grim reminder. Be happy with what you have.

Brotherly love

Twitter

When you are young and rely on opinions of others, especially your coevals, it is hard to decide what is good. Jealousy is a common thing, especially among siblings, so parents always try to get them the same things, as much as possible, so there is no reason for quarrel. But, sometimes, they get caught in the moment, take a photo and it is too late to change things. Unless you find an expert to help you out.

Pizza does wonders

Twitter

Not everyone likes to strike a pose and be in the photo, especially if the content is the same all the time – selfies taken by your girlfriend. You might not be in the mood all the time and if it is taken too often, how many faces can you make? If that is the case, it might be a good idea to spice things up a bit. Rumor is that a pepperoni pizza does wonders, see for yourself.

Size does matter

Twitter
Despite having so many selfies with their boyfriends, they always want more. And not only that, but the picture has to be perfect. Although everybody knows what they look like, they always want to make the photo look better. When the filters don’t help, retouching can, especially if done by an expert who understands what is bothering you and what you want to achieve.

(Chicken) wings

Twitter
Having so many photos can cause a problem – how not to repeat yourself. What do you do when you’ve exhausted all the different locations, changed all the wardrobe and struck all the poses? Well, you might turn to imaginary things, like halos and wings. Just be carful, if you’re not doing it yourself, you might get wings that you did not expect.

Obviously in the way

Twitter

Different people notice different things in the photos. We are our own biggest critics, since we are the most aware of our shortcomings, especially the ones at the moment when the photo is taken. But, quite often, we take it to extremes and get bothered by some insignificant things. Until the bigger ones start to appear. Sounds familiar?

Miracles do not happen

Twitter

How many photos do we take all the time and still later, when browsing through them, cannot find the one we’d like to have had taken. The only hope then is to find someone who can edit the existing one and make the magic happen – turn back time and give us the photo we wish we had taken. Unfortunately, miracles don’t always happen, if at all, it is just trickery, certain things just cannot be altered in the way you wish.

Out of place

Twitter

Why, oh why would you take the photo in a setting that is not what you were hoping for? Why would you set yourself up for a disappointment? Especially for the events that are rather important in your life – such as your engagement; and cannot be (necessarily) repeated. Well, if you do, don’t be surprised if the only solution to your problem is something like in this photo.

Older or looking older?

Twitter

We all wish we were younger, but surely remember the times when we were kids and could not wait to grow older. How much older, that is a different matter. Time might be relative, but surely there is a limit. We cannot speak for all, but we are pretty positive that no one dreamed of being in a nursing home when they were young.

Get some, lose some

Twitter

The quest for the perfect photo in every situation is a hard task, but it is not stopping us from trying. There is always that little something to spoil the fun. You can try this or that, but it just doesn’t work. And after spending so much time getting rid of that little something, you realize that there will always be something else to annoy you.

Smiling teeth

Twitter

A difference of opinion is not easy to deal with when taking photos. You might like this and she might like that. And vice versa. So, what do you do? Well, we can accept each other for who we are and take the photo as is or ask an expert to help us retouch it later. Just try not to get the ‘smart’ guy to do it, it might ruin the whole thing.

Less is more

Twitter

It’s hard to please people, they always want something else – different season, time of day, background, outfit. Sometimes it seems like they intentionally choose the wrong setting and then complain and want the photo retouched. That is why they deserve the result like this one – enjoy the foliage.

Enjoy the outdoors

Twitter

When you want the picture of you and the boys outside of the house, then take one outside of the house, not inside. It is way less effort to walk outside and take the photo than to ask someone to retouch it. Plus, it is not real, you’ll always know it is fake and might not be able to recall the occasion once you’re not able to recognize the scenery.

Grilled or Peking duck?

Twitter

You’re out for a walk with your girlfriend and you stumble upon the perfect setting for a photo – you’re in the park, there’s a lake and some flowers. Camera out and then you realize – if only there were some ducks there, too. Selfie with your girlfriend is not the same without some ducks in it. Would you prefer grilled or Peking? Good thing they did not ask for some swans.

Do statues count?

Twitter

It is hard to stand out from the crowd, even in your own photos. Those fellow tourists always ruin the perfect photo by hanging out in the background. They have no courtesy to step out of the frame when others are taking photos. So, you have to ask someone to retouch them and remove those annoying people from your photos. Do statues count for people?

All shapes and sizes

Twitter
The hardest thing seems to be to accept yourself for who you are, including the way you look. We are our own biggest critics and we are never satisfied with the way we look. For certain things, like the current facial expression, we can understand, but for some features that define you, like the shape of your head, it is hard to comprehend. Changing them would change the person. It would not be you anymore, would it?

Reflection in the mirror is you

Twitter

The photo has to be perfect, right? Especially the selfie. But, what is the perfect photo? You have to look perfect, obviously, including the reflection in the mirror. But, what about the surroundings, do they have to be spot on, as well? Perhaps not, everything revolves around you and your reflection in the mirror, the rest is not important.

The appropriate setting

Twitter

There’s a time and place for everything. So, if your photo seems out of place, you can always put it in the right setting to make it look better. Once you are in the right surrounding, suddenly things look different and not necessarily out of place. Just make sure you choose the surroundings yourself, since it might create the whole new set of issues if you don’t.

Perfect fit

Twitter

Some photos just make the perfect setting for a certain purpose and invite you to retouch them and breathe a whole new life into them. When done properly, it will look seamless and hard to believe that it is a mockup, not to mention the satisfaction that you turned a not so interesting photo into something exceptional and timeless.

Perception

Twitter

Different cultures perceive things differently, so what you might see in one light, others might see in a different one. This is especially evident if we are talking about the differences between the continents, as well as western and eastern culture. Stereotypes are present everywhere, so make sure you educate yourself before falling for any of them.

A little bit

Twitter

It is hard to resist the chance to take the photo in some of the iconic places. But, if you are not actually at the place, but somewhere nearby, the result might not be what you were hoping for. Luckily, experts can help you change things in your favor. As usual, perception of the size and quantity is individual, so make sure you express your wishes properly.

Jurassic park

Twitter

When you watch too much TV, it changes your perception of the world and you might start seeing movie scenes everywhere you go. The next step is to wish for those scenes to come alive, like you were in the movie. And if your favorite movie is Jurassic park with the dinosaurs and all, it might be easier said than done. Or is it?

Wish granted

Twitter

When you’re in love, you don’t think things through nor have the patience to wait. You sit on the bench with a bunch of people and do not even notice when they are gone. And then ask an expert to help you sort it out. Just be aware that he might not share your enthusiasm or he is just plain jealous.

Ducks are popular

Twitter

Petting a wild duck might not be as easy as it seems, even in the photo and even if it is a mock-up. If you want to deal with ducks, you got to get wet. Simple as that. Ducks are aquatic animals, so not much choice there, at least not if you ask them or the Photoshop expert.

Short dress

Twitter

Quite often, people don’t necessarily like their partners for who they are, but rather for what they would like them to be. The relationship may or may not last, depending on the number and gravity of the things they would like changed. If you let the appearances get in your way, you might end up with the dress on a hanger and no girlfriend.

Backseat singer

Twitter

When a tired brother yawning wide gets in the way of your selfie, what do you do? You ask an expert for help and turn him into a backseat singer. Headphones must be there to help you deal with the intensity of his singing, which seems pretty loud. Dark googles just add up to the rock star looks.

Hand or foot?

Twitter

When people complain about something, the focus can be either on the action or on the object of the action. And if something is wrong, they immediately assume that the solution is the opposite of one of those things. But the result is very much different, depending on which one they choose, action or the object, as can be seen in this photo.

You’re a donkey

Twitter

Whether we like it or not, most photos posted are about the looks and the better you look the more likes you get. So, no wander that everybody pays extra attention to looking good, even if they have some deficiencies. Especially if they have some deficiencies. They will choose the stance carefully or, if that fails, ask for help. What was the other word for donkey?

Plastic things

Twitter

Beauty is pretty much subjective and in the eye of the beholder. Nowadays, along with natural beauty, there are trends that promote augmentations of certain body parts, enlarging them to a degree that does not seem normal. Plastic seems to be the filler of choice, so no wonder that this girl lost some volume when asked the expert to remove the plastic things.

Kissing

Twitter

Do you close your eyes when you kiss and get lost in the moment, or look around and wait for it to be over? Apparently, this guy doesn’t appreciate his girlfriends attitude toward kissing, so he thought it was easier to ask someone to retouch the photo than to get it sorted out with her. You’re not getting off that easy, my friend.

Making everybody happy

Twitter

Some people are very hard to please and make you choose sides between friends, even when there is no need to do so. And, for some reason, they usually get what they want, maybe because they are so vocal about it. But, with the help of a Photoshop expert, it is possible to make everybody happy, just need some ingenuity and skill.

Making people rich

Twitter
It appears that many girls wish their boyfriends were rich, for whatever their reasons might be. Some settle for love, but some insist on riches. This girl went one step further – she settled for love and wanted to make him rich. But, obviously, she asked the wrong person, so he did the next best thing he could to meet her request – made him Rich.

Fitting a square peg into a round hole

Twitter
Don’t think there is a single person on Earth that is completely satisfied with their looks, but some people go to extremes. They get bothered with some petty things that can hardly be noticed, if at all. So, the perfect reply to them is to show them what would it look like if they had an actual issue. This girl tried the medicine and hope she learned the lesson.

Lost in the crowd

Twitter

Unless you are on a football team or a referee, it is hard to take the photo from the field during the game, with the stands full of people. But, if you wish really hard, miracles are possible. Just be careful what you wish for, since it might not be as much fun as you thought it would be. A photo with your dad is way better than getting your face lost in the crowd.

How tall is the giraffe?

Twitter
Certain things are better when viewed from the distance. But, you realize that only when they come close. So did these two guys. Bet they were not expecting to see the giraffe so up close and personal, but you get what you wish for. They will know better next time.

Closed

Twitter
She could do whatever she wanted with her legs, e.g. cross them, but he was not allowed the same luxury. He was supposed to put his legs closer together. At least that’s what she was supposed to ask for, or she might not get what she wanted, but rather something like this – closed for business.

Bragging rights

Twitter

Bragging rights have to be earned, not photoshopped, cheating never did no good to anyone. Anyhow, what does it mean to meet someone? Just take a photo with them or hang around and get to know them? But have to admit, meeting Mr. Rodgers would’ve been nice, he seems like a rather supportive guy.

Mustache

Twitter

In many cultures, a mustache is the way into manhood, so no wonder that many boys wish to have them as soon as possible. Usually, when they start growing, they look rather funny, thin and without proper volume. But, things change in time, unless you cannot wait and wish to grow up sooner than possible and get mustache very similar to your amazing eyebrows.

Tooth for a tooth

Twitter

We cannot change the way other people look like in the pictures. Usually, people that don’t care much about their looks always appear rather happy, but with some of their imperfections pretty much visible. It doesn’t bother them, but it could ruin the photo for others. If you care about the looks, that is. Let me correct the first statement – someone can change the way people appear in the pictures, see.

Sisterly love

Twitter

Siblings spend their entire childhood together, mostly fighting, so no wonder they don’t care about each other very much when they grow up. Usually, they aggravate each other easily and don’t care much about pleasing each other. So, having fun together is almost a mission impossible without the proper help in the form of a Photoshop expert. If he new what having a good time next to a sister meant.
