Let’s face it. The internet is all smoke and mirrors, and you don’t always get the true story behind a pic. It’s safe to say that most of the pics we see online have been doctored thanks to Photoshop. If you want to get rid of wrinkles or put your head on someone else’s body, you can very well do it, that is, if you know how to edit pics. Well, James Fridman is a pro at editing with Photoshop, but he’s also one funny dude.

Fridman isn’t just a pro at Photoshop, he’s also a photo manipulating wizard with a funny bone. He was asked to edit a photo, but he turned that request into one literal creation that was hilarious. It left everyone laughing their butts off. Fridman’s got an entire site dedicated to sharing his hilarious interpretations of people’s Photoshop requests. He also shares these on Facebook and Twitter. So if you’re not a pro at editing, perhaps Fridman can lend a hand. If anything, you’ll have a nice laugh.

Fridman said, "I don’t consider myself a graphic designer, it is more of a hobby." He continued by saying, "When I first started using image manipulation software, it was something new and not as widespread as it is now, so everyone was learning and experimenting. I 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 – that’s how I ended up creating my Twitter account."

Thanks to his hilarious work, he’s got millions of people following him online. More specifically, 1.4 million on Twitter and a whopping 1.1 on Facebook. He gets sent tons of Photoshop requests. Everyone is in on the joke, as they know what his work is all about. Plus, he rarely pokes fun at the person in the photo, but rather makes fun at this whole culture of self-promotion, which makes everyone think they need to look perfect and edit their flaws.

Oh, Baby!

You can tell that Fridman’s got the best intentions. Even though these images are meant to be funny, he still tries to get across a message of self-acceptance. It’s a powerful message, given that we live in a culture that’s all about selfies and self-criticism. Every single submission brings something different to the table. "I don’t really plan anything, it sort of happens naturally," he shared. "I pick a request and react to it. Whether you call it trolling or something else, I don’t mind." Well, the results are hilarious nonetheless.
