Join us as we take a look at James Fridman's finest work!
Be Careful What You Ask for!
If you plan on asking James Fridman to Photoshop one of your favorite holiday snaps, you better have a sense of humor! He tends to look at things from a quirky perspective. Take Senay Tay's photo, for example. She wanted her boyfriend to look younger. She probably expected Fridman to make his hair darker or maybe put a baseball cap on his head. But no. This Photoshop expert had a much better plan!
The funny thing is, the boyfriend "does" look way younger than he did in the original photo, but only because Fridman has aged Senay Tay by about 60 years!
Elaine Must Be Very Pleased!
While Elaine loves this photo of herself sitting front and center among friends, there is no denying that one of them has placed his hand in a very controversial position. The cheeky boy at the back could have put his hand in several different places. But no, he had to place it against Elaine's boob! It's no wonder she wants the hand moved. But we're guessing this is not quite what she had in mind!
The Photoshop master has worked his magic again and done precisely what was requested. The position of the cheeky boy's hand is no longer an issue. Elaine must be very pleased!
Tim’s Teeth Are Gleaming!
Well, that worked a treat. Look how white his teeth are! They do look slightly stained in the original photo, but we're not sure if it has anything to do with his white shirt. Although, now that the white shirt has been removed, it does seem to have worked wonders for his teeth. While Tim now looks like a gypsy about to enter a bare-knuckle boxing match, we're sure he's happy with the result!
There's no doubt that Tim will be using his new photo for any documents that require a photo ID, like his passport or driver's license. We like his style!
This Metal Band Just Got Way Heavier!
When these guys requested to look heavier and more metal, there's no denying they got exactly what they asked for. This new look could easily be the cover of Formosa's next album. While they may look more like they're about to embark on an adventure down the yellow brick road in search of a heart with the cowardly Lion and Scarecrow, these three metalheads could easily rock out in their new outfits!
Let's be honest. We're bored of heavy metal bands just wearing black all the time. It's time for a change, and Formosa is about to lead the way with their new metal style!
Can You Give Me a Hand?
We're not sure what Amanda expected here. There were only two possible outcomes. A new arm edited into the picture, or her existing arm edited out of the picture. And as we can see, James Fridman went for the latter. Poor Amanda is left looking at the lovely meal in front of her as it gets cold, wondering how on earth she will eat it now! Let's hope there's someone there to help her!
What was she doing with her right arm in the original photo anyway? She clearly knew her picture was being taken. Maybe it wasn't the best time to scratch your butt!
You’re Right, James. That “Is” Scary!
James Fridman has taken this opportunity to point out what is "actually" scary these days, and it's not ghosts and goblins! As Stefanie poses with a tall skeleton figure at her local supermarket, Fridman has created a new background that many people will agree is very scary. These banners point out the issues that haunt many families on a daily basis. Unemployment, high energy prices, medical debt, and unaffordable housing!
James Fridman must have been having a bad day when he created this one. Instead of his usual humor, he has used his platform to make a political statement this time!
Clean Up Your Own Mess!
It looks like Jamie has decided to teach these teenagers a life lesson. It's like he's saying, "Sorry, girls, but I'm not here to clean up after you. If you wanted a photo without all that junk in it, you should have cleaned it up yourself and then taken the picture!" He has removed everything from the picture, including the mirror and the floorboards! The whole room has been stripped!
These girls did need to learn a lesson. I mean, look at the state of the place. Their stuff is everywhere. They were too busy focusing on themselves to notice!
The Bride Looks Especially Beautiful!
Now that these two have turned into Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Ipkiss, they can embrace their inner Jim Carrey. It's the perfect setting to quote his alter ego. What would "The Mask" say on his wedding day? Probably something like, "Our love is like a red, red rose... and I'm a little thorny!" Or maybe, "You were good kid, real good. But as long as I'm around, you'll always be second best!"
I'm not sure if these masks would have met the standards that were required during the pandemic, but at least they have character. They don't just look great; they're "Sssssmokin'!"
This Guy “Really” Loves Calvin Klein!
Sorry, Tyla, but when your boyfriend loves something, he loves it forever! Even when the Calvin Klein logo is ripped from his T-shirt, he has a tattoo of the famous designer label across his chest. He's like a walking advertisement for the brand, and there's no way you're going to stop him from making a little extra cash on the side. As James says himself, "His love will never deklein!"
You know Tyla. There is a much easier way to stop him from wearing the same Calvin Klein T-shirt. Have you ever thought about buying him a new shirt? He'll have two to choose from, then!
They Look Like Such a Cute Couple!
When Kellie asked to have "These two" put together in a homecoming picture, I think she had something else in mind! The girl in the picture went through a lot of trouble to have a picture with the guy in the opposite photo. She even went through the trouble of getting it professionally set up with a green screen and everything. The guy, on the other hand, could have done a little better!
His pose is not too bad, but why on earth is he standing in a flower bed? Even if James had photoshopped it properly, the two would have been standing on the flowers!
Does That Feel Better?
The sun was bothering this lady so much that James decided to let her know what life would be like with no sun at all! I bet the lady feels silly now after being so angry about the sun in her face. The Photoshop expert is saying, "Be careful what you wish for. You should respect the sun because, without it, you will be frozen like the ice queen you are!"
Let's hope the lady has learned her lesson, and when she defrosts, she will have a better opinion about the sun. Or maybe next time, just move into the shade instead!
Now You See Me. Now You Don’t!
When Vivien asked for her ex-boyfriend to be photoshopped out of this picture, it was never going to be easy. I mean, Vivien would have been standing in a strange position if the guy had been taken out of the picture. Her whole body would need to be changed to make her look normal. We think James has done a great job under the circumstances, even if it is a hilarious outcome!
At least Vivien can now put her new, improved photo on the wall in her living room for everyone to see and not worry about her ex-boyfriend!
Are You Sure You Actually Like Each Other?
While that is certainly a lovely tree, I don't think it was the most important aspect of the picture. Did you not think it was a little weird when the person told you to stand apart? You look like an awkward brother and sister who can't stand each other, but your mom has made you put your arms around each other for the sake of the photo. It just looks wrong!
Well, thanks to the skills of the Photoshop expert, you wouldn't be able to get any closer even if you tried. And he even left that important tree in the picture!
It Could Have Been a Lot Worse!
Thank God James Fridman doesn't have a dirty mind, because if he did, this guy would have something entirely different in his hand! Good for you for keeping it clean, James, but we bet you were tempted. I'd love to know what this guy hoped to have in his hand. In that position, anything else would look weird. Maybe a bottle of beer would work. The tie was a safe bet!
The next time you get a professional photo taken, it's best to keep your hand away from that area. Be thankful. James, let you off easy with this one!
It’s All in the Details!
Well, he did what she asked. He removed the glass. Unfortunately, he left its contents behind, though! James Fridman loves it when people ask for something without adding small details. He uses the opportunity to show his comedic side. If you look closely, the drink has even spilled all over the girl's arm. If you never saw the original photo, Shrestha does look extra clumsy in the new photo!
It looks like she knocked over the drink just before the photo was taken. She even has an expression on her face that says, "Why does this sh*t always happen to me?"
She’ll Be Able to Feed off Those for a While!
Ouch! When Kat Kay asks to look like she can actually fish, James Fridman doesn't hold back. He lets her know that all she's trying to fish for is compliments and likes on whatever social media platform she’s on. Her fishing net is full of comments like, "Omg, you're so gorgeous!" or "You look so hot!" and "You can't imagine how beautiful you are!" James is giving her a dose of reality!
Let's hope Kat Kay has a sense of humor because if she doesn't, she won't be a fan of James Fridman anymore. Sometimes James can make you feel like an idiot!
The Perfect Solution to Isabella’s Problem!
When Isabella asked to have her hair removed from her fiance's face, she didn't leave James Fridman with many options. While she did state that she didn't want to look bald, she didn't say anything about extending her neck. But it all worked out in the end. Isabella's fiance looks great with his big smile, and you can now see all of his face. Unfortunately for Isabella, she now looks like a giraffe!
We think Isabella's new telescopic neck looks great. Think of all the advantages she has now. She will be able to see over high walls or people with big hair at the cinema!
The More Remote He Is, the Better!
Mission accomplished! Martine's boyfriend does look a lot happier now. And why wouldn't he? He has suddenly been transported from his girlfriend's living room to a remote tropical island. You're better off without him, Martine. If he's not happy being with you, then it's time to let him go. But if he was so miserable with you, why is he Facetiming you from his paradise island in the middle of nowhere?
It's time to move on from Mr. Grumpy. He looks like a little boy who has been ordered into the photograph by his mom! Meanwhile, you look riveting, Martine!
From Prom Queen to Matador!
Like I said before, with James Fridman, be careful what you wish for! When Katie asked for her photo to be made more interesting, she certainly got what she asked for and more. She has suddenly become a famous matador, ready to take on the fiercest bulls in the glorious arenas of Spain. But she doesn't need a fancy red cape. No, that's for amateurs. She can just use her red dress!
As the great big bull charges toward her, Katie stands fearless, ready to sidestep the beast at the last second, to the roar of the crowd. "Olé!"
Kirsty Has Just Realized She Married the Wrong Guy!
This guy certainly looks ready to take care of your plumbing, Kirsty! But something tells me you have forgotten all about the pipe traveling between your legs, and your focus is elsewhere now. But Kirsty, why on earth did your wedding photographer choose such a terrible spot to take such an important photo? You seem to be in a lovely area full of trees. The pipe is the least of your worries!
What about the big, dirty green platform in the background? Yeah, the one with all the weeds growing on it and the grubby-looking water pipes sticking out of it!
Her Octopus Teacher!
Well, you can't get more natural looking than that! Great job, James. We think this is your best one yet. Weijing's new photo with the live octopus is so much more appealing than the one with the deep-fried octopus that she's about to eat! Maybe the next time she goes to this restaurant, she will choose something from the vegetarian section. Then she should go home and watch "My Octopus Teacher" on Netflix!
James Fridman's ideas are always imaginative and usually very funny regarding his photoshopping skills. But from time to time, his ideas make you stop and rethink your choices!
Silly Goose! And I Don’t Mean the Bird!
The only silly goose in this picture is you, pal! What a bizarre request. Why do you want to fight the goose? Even though the goose has kicked your ass in the new photo, it's probably only a slight exaggeration. This goose "would" give you an ass whopping if she wanted to! In fact, she's looking at you in the original photo, and it looks like you're about to take a beatdown!
Geese can bite you or whack you with their extremely strong wings. But they usually only attack when you invade their space and provoke them. Yeah, kinda like this guy!
She’s About to Lose Her Mind!
Let's be honest. This is a strange photo in the first place. I mean, what is going on here? The lady in the American flag T-shirt looks like she is about to punch the woman in the orange blouse! Look at her eyes. She doesn't look scared at all. She's glaring at the other woman as if to say, "Shut your mouth, old hen, or I'm gonna slap you sideways!"
The lady in orange is probably the other woman's mother-in-law. That explains why she's getting ready to maul her to death. They don't look like they're enjoying the game of pool much, either!
The Poor Cows!
In the original picture, Hannah looks like she's having a great time in the countryside with all the cows. While she's making sure she doesn't get too close, she's certainly happy she has taken a selfie with her new friends. On the other hand, in the new photo, Hannah looks evil! She seems to be teasing the cattle with the big juicy steak she cut from one of their cousins earlier!
She's like, "Ha ha ha! Look at this, you big useless lumps. This is how you're going to end up. On my plate, ready to be cooked to perfection. Smell you later, girls!"
From Sweetheart to Psycho!
With one small change, Isabelle has gone from a cute, happy-looking, loving girlfriend to a complete psycho! In the new photo, she's telling her boyfriend through her gritted teeth, "You better smile, douchebag, or else I'm gonna cut off another one of your fingers. You will never try to break up with me again. Do you hear me? If you do, when you're sleeping, maybe I'll cut off something else!"
Her poor boyfriend looks like he's planning his escape. Or maybe he's going to shove her off the top of the cliff. Whatever's going on, these two need to kiss and make up!
There Was Definitely Something Missing From This Photo!
I'm not sure why James chose a horse's butt for you to rest your hand on, Bojana, but it works! He probably could have slotted almost anything in there, to be honest. It looks to me like you have your hand on the shoulder of the invisible man. Maybe he's a friend of yours, is he? I mean, what "were" you doing with your arm at the time of the photo?
We know it can be awkward to pose for pictures; sometimes you just don't know what to do with your hands! Maybe put your hand on your hip next time and there will be no need for a horse.
It Looks Like Jack Has Gone up the Beanstalk Again!
What is going on here? Rhiannon's husband looks like he's been captured by a gang of giants! Even in the original photo, everyone else has massive heads. And James agrees. When Rhiannon asks to have her husband's head more normal-sized, James seems to think it "is" normal. It's everyone else that needs help. James has doubled down on the others and made their heads even more exaggerated in size!
What a strange family Rhiannon's husband has married into! It's as if he just climbed the beanstalk and made it home to his new family in the world of giants!
We Think It’s an Improvement!
James has gone for two classic hairstyles from the 1980s to make Fran's friends feel like fools. But believe it or not, the "mullet" and the "afro" styles were all the craze once upon a time. The mullet was a particular favorite among white males who enjoyed glam rock bands like Bon Jovi and Whitesnake. On the other hand, the afro was worn by black men and women like Jimmi Hendrix or The Supremes!
Maybe your two friends will embrace their new look and start growing out their hair like you, Fran. And they should totally keep the shirts. They match the hair perfectly!
Make Way for the Dadbod!
Somewhere along the way, the universe decided that dadbods were the new six-packs. Move aside, washboard abs, and make way for the no abs at all look! We thought we needed to look like Greek gods, but it turns out we only needed to embrace our inner Homer Simpson! So forget about those endless hours at the gym. What girls really want is someone who has had too much pizza and beer.
To all the guys out there sporting their dadbods proudly, there's an army of admirers out there, ready to appreciate your dad skills and that body that makes you so irresistibly cuddly!
The Paris Skyline, Without the Big Metal Thing!
Well, Anya, James has got you there! To her credit, no one will refer to the Eiffel Tower as a ''long metal thing'', but it is a long metal thing nonetheless. You might have gotten what you had in mind, had you simply said ''Could you remove the pole, please?''. At least you can still tell you're in France, because of the ''blue square thing'', right there In the left corner.
Gotta applaud those Photoshop skills, though; you can't even tell the Eiffel Tower was ever there. I doubt that fact is of any help to poor Anya, however; how will anyone on Instagram be able to tell she went to Paris?
