Photos are a funny thing that have really evolved over time. As time went by, photos became a way of capturing a moment (for better or worse). Today, with the ability to take, edit, crop, filter, and share photos all in minutes just from your phone, it’s easier than ever to create a moment in your photo that wasn’t really that authentic. And with Photoshop, the things you can do to change the reality behind that new photo are amazing. James has fun with the idea that people want to drastically change reality after the moment’s passed to impress others. The results are often extremely hilarious, as anyone who has seen James’ work can attest. Let’s take a look at some of the funniest Photoshops James has done recently.
Ah, the old “the boy is mine” situation. It’s a tale as old as time…there’s just one guy, but you and your friend both like him, and so the competition begins. Unfortunately, this kind of situation leads to a bit of jealousy and envy, which anyone can tell you is pretty toxic within a friendship.
In this case, one girl said she wanted to look “grate” in the photo, and true to form, James made it happen in an unexpected, but quite literal, way.
Eyes Wide Shut
If social media has done anything to us, it’s made us really want to have those amazing couples moments where you do something romantic… and everyone on your friends list sees it.
This guy was obviously hoping for a beautiful picture of a romantic kiss with his girlfriend in front of the famous castle at Disney World, but there was an issue: her eyes were wide open! This was obviously not what he was looking for, so he asked James for a fix and he did it like only he can.
Did You Mean Kim?
The Kardashians have become quite a huge part of pop culture, from Kim to Chloe to Kendall…and you know, the others I can’t think of right now. The chubby guy who dated Blac Chyna, for instance.
Anyway, this young lady wanted to look like a Kardashian herself, and figured James was just the guy to do the trick. So he fired up Photoshop and worked his magic, but by now you know what happens if you don’t get specific when making a request…
He Took Her Out, Alright
Things can get ugly when you’re no longer on good terms with your friends. Sometimes, this makes you want to crop your friends out of your photos entirely! But what do you do if your friend that isn’t your friend any longer is not on the end of the pic?
Well, that’s where the magic of Photoshop comes in. Of course, James interpreted this girl’s Twitter request to “take the girl in the violet skirt out” in a different way.
You Said What?!
There’s a real issue right now with people not being present in the moment due to all of the interruptions and distractions that come with technology.
This poor girl was out with her man and he couldn’t even bother to look at the camera as she tried to take a photo of the two of them (which meant she was on her phone too, but ignore that). Through the magic of Photoshop, however, he suddenly became a very attentive boyfriend!
Sometimes, our friends aren’t really all that happy and we can’t really figure out why. This girl is definitely in that boat, but instead of addressing whatever the problem is, she just figured James could Photoshop him to look happy, instead.
Well, he figured it would be better to shed a little light on why her friend may not be so content in the photo. You have to wonder what her reaction was when she saw his very funny reply!
Maybe loving somebody just the way that they are is an old-fashioned concept. Now, it’s more likely that you’d love someone even more if they were just a little bit different in one way or another.
In this girl’s case, she wanted to see how her boyfriend would look if he was rich. Of course, if you aren’t going to be more specific, this is exactly the response that you should expect to get from James with such a question.
Brothers and sisters have a pretty special relationship. And by “special,” of course, we mean “getting along OK one moment, at each other’s throats the next.”
In this case, the sister is a little annoyed that her brother isn’t paying attention to her shenanigans, and she wants a better photo where her brother looks more interested in what’s going on. Well, ask and ye shall receive, though probably not quite in the way that you were hoping things would turn out!
Cleaning It Up
Isn’t it awful when people decide to destroy or vandalize landmarks and other picturesque locations?
In this case, a little bit of graffiti in the background of the photo was really making one woman unhappy, but if there’s anything you should know by now, it’s that James can work his Photoshop magic and get somebody in there to clean up the mess before you can say, “Wow, that looks clean now!” As you can see, James is hard at work on the graffiti in the background.
Photobombing can be really fun, but usually only for the one doing the photobombing. For everyone else, it’s kind of a bummer as they look at the photo they took, hoping to perfectly capture the moment only to get some numbskull in the background goofing off.
This woman was bummed out after a guy walked by and did finger guns (of all things) in the background of a photo in Budapest. Fortunately, Photoshop blended the guy right in, though maybe not how she had hoped.
He’s Got Style
If you’ve been following James on Twitter for a little while, you know that you have to be very specific when you make a request. So if you say something like “his looks ruin my pic,” you can expect to get something like this girl got in response.
Oh, he fixed the guy in the background’s look, alright, by using Photoshop to dress him just like her. The only question that should be left on everybody’s mind is: who wore it better?
Caught In The Raptor
Here’s another case of love gone wrong. I’m not sure what happened to this once happy couple, but clearly you can tell that the girl is not as happy with her boyfriend as she was when the photo was taken.
Imagine being in a relationship where you’ve become so annoyed with your significant other that you’d rather be kissing a hungry dinosaur than the other person. Well, that’s where this person found herself, and fortunately, she reached out to a person with the Photoshop skills necessary to really make it happen.
Ask And Ye Shall Receive
If James is anything, he’s a person that likes to grant requests to the letter. And by that, I mean, to your exact specifications, unintended circumstances be damned. Take this young lady for instance. She’s apparently a huge Harry Potter fan and wanted to be turned into a character from the series.
However, she didn’t specify which character she wanted to be, so the resulting Photoshop turns her into Dobby the house elf, which likely wasn’t her first choice.
There’s nothing quite like a romantic lunch or dinner date. Sharing a meal with someone you care about can be a nice experience and a great way to take your connection with one another even further.
Some people like to hold hands as they talk and wait for their food, but this couple wasn’t thinking about it as they sat together, so she decided to ask for a Photoshop. Unfortunately, she didn’t specify whose hands they should be holding.
Which One? All Of Them
A lot of people like to do group photos for their social media profiles, but the problem is that others may not really know which person out of the photo is you when they click on it.
This guy thought he had the perfect remedy for that: he’d just ask for a Photoshop to make it clear that he’s the guy in the blue shirt. Well, there will be no mistaking which face is his now that James has worked his magic, that’s for sure!
No Pants Allowed
Fashion is constantly changing, so it can be hard to keep up with trends. What’s also frustrating is that when you go somewhere, you may not know what your friends or family are planning on wearing, and you might not dress appropriately.
Sometimes you just want to dress to be comfortable, but the other people in your party weren’t on the same page. This guy was wearing shorts (which were not very short, what’s his problem?) and wanted to match his friends. Wish granted.
Family is a special thing. You can feel a connection with your family members that you might not achieve with many other people.
All of the shared experiences – not to mention the shared genetics – help you really “get” your family in a way few others can. However, sometimes you still feel a little left out, like this poor guy who was the only one in the family with red hair. He asked for a Photoshop solution, and what he got back was quite unexpected.
It’s All In Your Head
This girl had a rather funny idea. She decided to take a photo of her friend pretending to be running away from a monster or some other scary creature. Now, she just needed someone who knew how to use Photoshop that could superimpose something scary behind her friend and complete the shot.
She reached out to James, who was happy to help, but his choice for “something scary” was rather unorthodox. Teletubbies were pretty creepy, though.
Eye Literally Fell
Everyone likes to use the word “literally” these days, but they don’t want to use it the right way. They either use it to mean something that didn’t actually literally happen, or something that was so obviously literal that the word isn’t needed.
James likes to interpret things literally, however, so when a girl asked him to Photoshop her picture so she’s in front of the “Eyefell” Tower, she should have know that she was going to get something strange in return.
Some guys are really too picky towards their girlfriends. The guy in this photo isn’t exactly a fashion god himself, and yet he’s so critical of his girlfriend’s outfit that he felt compelled to ask someone to Photoshop her dress to lengthen it.
And how is that dress too short, anyway? Well, James let him have it in a funny way. Hopefully, he’ll be smart enough to realize that if he doesn’t lay off the criticism, he may be standing next to an empty dress sooner or later.
Didn’t Go Well
The animal kingdom is no joke, that much is for sure. Humans like to act like they are at the top of the food chain, and in many ways we are, but that’s because of our ingenuity, not our pure physical prowess.
This guy wanted to fight the goose in the background of his photo, but he didn’t know what he was getting into. The resulting Photoshop shows that maybe this particular guy should be happy that the goose doesn’t feel like beating him up.
Just Ignore Them
The truthfulness of this Photoshop is pretty much off the charts. The guy who submitted the photo of himself jumping was probably hoping for a cool explosion or something, but let’s be honest: how many times in life do we need to jump out of the way of a huge explosion?
Pretty much zero. How many times in life do we hurdle our responsibilities? Just about every day. Therefore, this photo is not just a funny one, but also a truthful picture, too.
Well, That’s Awkward
Group photos sometimes get very awkward. When you get a bunch of skinny high school kids bunched together for a photo, sometimes you can’t even tell which limbs belong to what person.
The guy in the orange shirt is a victim of that, as the angle of his body makes it look like his head belongs to someone else entirely. He asked for a Photoshop to attach his head to his body, but he may not be happy about what his head is attached to.
Grip From The Bottom
Look, we all want to have superpowers. Some of us want to fly, others want to be able to read minds, or even turn invisible on command. Super-strength is another popular superpower, and it’s apparently this girls power of choice.
She wants it to look like she’s holding the cliff in the background up, but she forget that you generally hold things in that way with your hand on the bottom, not the top. Not to worry, James fixed it for her!
It seems like every day there is a new Instagram queen who’s famous for little more than having a big booty and wearing lots of yoga pants. This girl may not have aspirations of being an Instagram “model” (lol), but she does want to have a little more junk in the trunk if possible.
Unfortunately for her, “ass” means more than one thing, and she didn’t realize that the Photoshop was not going to give her a badunkadunk, but instead a badunka-donkey.
It’s not always easy to find a date. Even those of us who fancy ourselves good at talking to the opposite sex sometimes have a hard time lining up a date before a big event.
This guy obviously found himself in that situation, but wanted to save face by having a Photoshop done that would make it look like he was out with a beautiful woman. Well, he asked for a photo of a beautiful woman, and that’s exactly what he got, though maybe he wasn’t expecting an 8″x10″ of Pamela Anderson.
Good News, Bad News
It’s easy sometimes to want to brag, and this can easily lead to stretching the truth a little. But what do you do when you’ve stretched the truth a little too much and it’s time to come clean?
If you’re like this guy, you double down on the lie, instead. He wanted a photo that “pet” him in a Bugatti, and he technically got what he asked for, as that’s James’ hand petting a creepy dog version of him in a Bugatti.
Most people want to look younger than they are, at least once they hit their 30s. However, not everybody is all that happy to have a youthful face. This guy is self-conscious that he looks “like a child,” and thought James would be able (and willing) to fix it.
The solution is effective enough, considering that he doesn’t look like a child anymore! However, the male pattern baldness makes him look 100 times more creepy.
Don’t Get Burned
Everyone tends to forget to wear sunscreen now and then, resulting in all kinds of photos where they have red or pink skin from sunburns. This guy realized long after the photo was taken that he and his lady friend had had a little too much sun that afternoon.
When he asked James to Photoshop the picture and fix it, James decided to go with preventative measures instead. Hopefully, it helps the couple remember to wear their sunscreen in the future.
All Mixed Up
There are times where you definitely don’t know exactly what the person making the Photoshop request was going for. This photo is a little weird, but relatively unembarrassing, making it even stranger that one of the gentleman asked that James Photoshop them looking in different directions.
Fortunately for them, he was willing to help and no matter what, you can’t say that he didn’t deliver. They are definitely looking in different directions now!
Many people subscribe to the idea that before one “perfect” Instagram photo can be posted, a hundred others are cast away for not making the object of the photo look “perfect” enough.
In this case, the other girls were a little bummed by one of their friends, who couldn’t seem to time her jump with theirs. However, with a little help from a trampoline, James was quite sure that the girl would be able to surpass her friends.
If you send a photo to a prankster like James and tell him to just do as he wants, you can’t get your hopes up too high regarding what you might get back in return.
This young man actually got what was probably the best possible result: James did a really funny Photoshop of him that doesn’t embarrass him and shouldn’t really make him feel uncomfortable or self-conscious when people see it. Good for you, James! Nice work indeed.
He’s All Wet
When you want to get an adventurous photo but you aren’t really able to get close enough in order to make the shot look great and distinctive, it’s time to ask for help.
This young man wanted to look like he was right in front of the waterfall, but James did him one better and put him inside the waterfall. The young man can’t really be mad about the results: it actually looks pretty cool and his hair probably needed a good washing, anyway.
Photos With T-Swift
Who wouldn’t want to meet their favorite singer or musician and get a picture with them? That’s what these girls were thinking after they took a cute group photo and wanted to make it look like pop star Taylor Swift was in the picture with them.
When they asked James to Photoshop the pop standout into the photo, he was ready and willing to do so. However, she did not join the party in the manner that the other members of the group probably intended!
Poland The Ladies
It’s hard to pull the ladies when you look kind of like a Poindexter and you’re a student who can’t afford a big, fancy prom. This guy decided to take a photo when he was all dressed up and ready to impress, but he thought it needed some “polish.” What does that mean?
Well, to James, it meant making the guy look like he was about to go to a traditional Polish party. You have to admire James’ attention to detail, as he even translated the phrase to Polish!
