Look, how many times have we told you to be careful what you wish for? Let me help you count. Bored Panda warned you in this same post 3 months ago and prior to that, we told you here, here, and here. Time has passed, years have gone by, seasons have changed and nobody, not a single one, has ever thought: “Wait, maybe I should really be more careful when asking James Fridman to photoshop my pic!”
Because the guy is savage. Want the lamp out of sight? Disappear into the darkness. Wanna edit the dominos out of your prom pic? You may as well be photoshopped into the delivery guy. ‘Cause if there’s one thing James is the best at, probably on the whole internet, it's making photoshop edits that are way too literal and all too hilarious. But hey, it’s what you asked for, right?
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.
