Fridman fixes photos according to the requests, but he always adds his own humorous interpretation of the instruction.
Photography is an art. Knowing when to make that click makes all the difference. However, there's probably a much less appreciated and "never fails to blow our minds" kind of art that we also need to talk about: Photoshop.
In a world where photographs matter a lot to people, James Fridman, a British digital artist, has been fixing photos for a long time and has been inundated with requests. Fridman, a Photoshop master, is frequently asked to make adjustments to photographs to make them perfect by removing a photobomber, making a person taller, or changing the background among other things.
Although Fridman fixes photos according to the requests, he always adds his own humorous interpretation of the instruction and has earned a following of over 2 million on Twitter and Instagram.
Fridman has been at it for years, and every now and then you can cheer yourself up by scrolling through his profile, which is littered with hilarious edits. In one photo, a girl requests that he shorten her boyfriend's feet, and he responds by elongating her feet to match his. In another photo, a girl asks him to photoshop her boyfriend into a boxer, but instead of putting boxing gloves on him, Fridman transforms the guy into a boxer dog.
The only request he refuses is when someone asks them to change their appearance to fit society's perception of beauty. He reminds them that they are just as beautiful as anyone else, and those posts always get the most likes. When he isn't photographing, Fridman runs a foundation that assists children and young people affected by social issues.
