There's something fundamentally unjust about a post-processing forum without a Photoshop trolling thread, so I'm starting one.
For folks who aren't familiar with the meme, the basic concept of Photoshop trolling is straightforward: Some folks post pictures and ask folks to fix them in some way. Then other folks "fix" them, creating what are otherwise good quality Photoshop hack jobs, based upon a deliberate misunderstanding of the original request, in a comical way. It is particularly funny if the original poster then replies to a troll and tries to correct the misunderstanding, resulting in an even bigger misunderstanding.
For example, someone posts a photo of a blue car and asks you to change it to orange. One person might remove the car and replaces it with a fruit. Another person might make the seats orange or replace the car with an entirely different car that happens to be orange. Still another might make everything but the car orange, or tint the photo orange, or add an orange car painted on the side of the blue car. The more absurd, the better.
- Pictures should be your own photos or pics from elsewhere on CR.
- No nudity, pictures of illegal activity, or other forum-rule-violating behavior.
- If someone corrects you, try to modify the already-modifed photo to "meet" the person's needs rather than going back to the original.
- Have fun.
