Graphic designer who makes VERY literal Photoshop changes pokes fun at woman who asked for ‘Bin Lady’ removed from background of Instagram pic
A graphic designer poked fun at a woman who asked to remove a garbage lady from the background of her otherwise perfect photo.
James Fridman from the UK received a message from a fan asking him to enhance a photo she recently took in Valencia, Spain.
The picture shows the woman from the Netherlands posing in the middle of a picturesque square with the city’s Gothic cathedral in the background.
But when she took a closer look at the picture, the woman said her eye was drawn to a garbage collector wearing a fluorescent orange uniform in the background.
She saw it as a good opportunity to connect with James – who has over 2.4million followers for his very literal and cheeky take on Photoshop requests.

The woman wrote: “Hi James I really like this photo but could you do something about the garbage lady?”
“I don’t like the orange in the picture.”
As was proper, James did as the woman asked – but then edited the rest of the photo to show how the place would look without the garbage collectors.
He sent her the picture back and simply wrote, “Done.”
The edited image showed the beautiful town square covered with countless garbage bags and piles of rubbish.
Additionally, James designed the trash cans to overflow without the garbage collector being present.
Not only did he add a huge dirty puddle next to the woman’s feet, but he also attached a piece of scrap paper to her leg.
Since James’ edited photo was uploaded to his Facebook post earlier this week, it has garnered over 191,000 likes and fans have used it to highlight the importance of the refuse collectors’ work.

One responded: “I also love the junk stuck to her leg. Insane respect for the people who do this work.”
Another added: “Kudos to all the people who pick up trash/trash/trash.”
‘Thank you for your service.’
“Without the cleaning lady there wouldn’t even be a nice place to take pictures,” said a third.
A fourth said: “People don’t think about the importance of the tough jobs that most of us don’t want to do and the impact it would have if they weren’t there.”
“Well done James, a strong message I think!”

James handed this woman a plate of raw meat after she asked the Photoshop pro to “move the cows a little closer.”

However, others said it was clear the woman was caught up in James’ joke and had not attempted to be disrespectful to the garbage collector.
One supporter said: “I think she asked nicely and meant no harm to the cleaning lady.”
“Why are people so annoying on the internet these days?”
Another wrote, “Does anyone else think she just asked the editor to change the color of the sanitary lady’s vest and not remove it from the photo?”
For the past few years, James has wowed social media users with his cheeky interpretations of their edit requests – including a woman who got more than she bargained for after asking James to bring her closer to the camera in a picturesque waterfall shot.
