One ingenious 25-year-old has come up with a hilarious solution to the dilemma of photos depicting happier times with your ex — and it could involve Zac Efron or Megan Fox if you want it to.
L.A.-based photographer Kaitlin Kelly offers a service that will have her Photoshop celebrities over your exes in all those photos you otherwise can’t delete because they were taken on your once-in-a-lifetime trip to Bora Bora.
Kelly’s first experience Photoshopping a celebrity over an ex was in one of her own photos, when she superimposed “50 Shades of Grey” actor Jamie Dornan into the photo.
“This specific work was completely by accident and started as a joke,” Kelly told NextShark.
“I was sitting around with a friend one night bemoaning the fact that a lot of my favorite photos of myself from high school or early college have my exes in them, neither of whom I’m very keen to see. My friend suggested that, since I have the skill, I may as well Photoshop over my exes with celebrities, and the rest is history!”
“I posted the photos in a Facebook group earlier in the week, where I first got the indication that other people might be interested in having it done for them, and it very quickly became a viral story. So all of this is very new and very exciting!”
The response to her edited pictures have been so positive that she says she plans to open an Etsy shop where anyone can request the service.
“So far I’ve been contacted by a lot of people, far far more than I ever imagined. It’s crazy how you can never predict what the internet is going to love. I’ve done so many pieces of Photoshop art in the past that haven’t caught on, and something I thought was just a joke has turned into something huge and very important to a lot of people.”
