The photoshop troll who takes requests way too literally is back and the photos are hilarious
Photoshop really is amazing. Maybe it's because we use it so much that we take it for granted, but it's easy to forget just what an incredible thing it is - particularly when you have some really talented people out there using and enjoying it. Yes, the people who are well trained in photo-editing are capable of transforming reality, and when they use it for something more impressive than obscuring a blemish or trimming body fat, they can completely re-invent an image and make it wholly new.
If you want an example of these kinds of skills, then look no further than James Fridman - aka The Photoshop Troll. For years, Fridman has been delighting us all with his hilarious photoshop edits. The setup is this: Fridman's social media followers will send him a pic that they want changed, usually tweeting exactly what they want fixed. Fridman's talents are undeniable, but he has a habit of 'misinterpreting' the requests; with hilarious results. So without further ado, allow us to take you through the latest batch of his fantastic photoshop fails.
