Lots of people wish their favorite photographs looked just a little bit different. Assuming they can't figure out how to use airbrushing/editing software themselves, these novices tend to reach out to popular digital editors for help.

Enter James Fridman, who has become notorious for his hilarious literal interpretations of ridiculous client requests. We could describe it to you, but why not just look for yourself instead -- here are 50 of his finest works!

For most of these, reading the requests from the 'patients', as it were, is important.

The theme for these photo edits is: "Be careful what you wish for."

...but why stand in front of a caution sign in the first place?

What was she really hoping for, though?

photoshop fail

Prudes get screwed!

photoshop fail

Inbreeding. Don't do it.

Everything's better with chocolate!

Read her request -- she asked the king of mocking not to mock her. #Dumb

"SomeBODY ONCE TOLD ME..."

[insert evil Bert and Ernie caption here]

What's wrong with holding hands with your friend?

photoshop fail

Way, way more young.

photoshop fail

Because it's a fan. Which keeps things cool...get it?

photoshop fail

Going to need some burn cream for that...damnit, ruined the joke!

The family that wears terrible pants together, stays together.

photoshop fail

Well, that's one way to do it.

For the record, we agree with Jamie on this one. That kid is the real MVP.

Did the song immediately start playing in your head too?

photoshop fail

This may be our favorite so far.

photoshop fail

This is NOT how you become an Instagram model.

Honestly, he should have just cut her out of the picture entirely.

photoshop fail

Somehow this is less creepy than an open-eyed kiss.

photoshop fail

In case you've just been laughing and not really paying attention, these are so funny because Fridman is actually REALLY good with Photoshop. This is a great example.

A detail not to be overlooked: the zip-up binder under his left arm.

photoshop fail

This looks like a scene from "The Ring".

photoshop fail

Jamie is basically an evil genie granting bad wishes.

photoshop fail

Best caption from Fridman so far, no doubt.

photoshop fail

To be honest, we missed why this was funny at first because it is so seamless.

photoshop fail

The pacifier was a nice touch.

photoshop fail

He made the guy disappear but made the woman multiply.

'Big Head Mode' used to be the best video game cheat code back in the day!

Richard is the longform of "Rich," but it is also longform for "Dick," so this would have worked for either request.

The ex-girlfriend who made this request can have one of two reactions to this photoshop: tears, or becoming the woman on the right.

photoshop fail

Get on my level!

photoshop fail

This one's not as much fun because the request seemed so genuine. Poor guy.

photoshop fail

In some cultures, she would be considered a goddess. Or a carnival attraction.

photoshop fail

Geese are mean as f**k. Keep your distance.

photoshop fail

The goatee-hair swap feels so gross and wrong.

photoshop fail

It's hard to make a parody Photoshop job politically relevant, but he pulled it off nicely here. That headline would make a lot of people smile.

photoshop fail

And now you have to pay a hefty fine for littering.

photoshop fail

That plastic bird got more action than her date, we reckon.

photoshop fail

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Also, LOL.

photoshop fail

Bubbles mean trouble.

(Writer's Note: I just came up with that rhyme. That's not in a rap, is it? I'm copywriting it immediately. Look for my EP on Soundcloud soon).

photoshop fail

This definitely qualifies as more epic.

The square head works for Spongebob, but it is not doing her any favors.

photoshop fail

Waldo might be mixed in there somewhere, too.

photoshop fail

Read the shirt.

photoshop fail

Borderline NSFW.

He just saved them a lot of money on invisibility cloaks.
