129 Comments

Welcome to another edition of Photoshop Phriday. If you're new to these hijinks, your task is simple: Take this source photo, fire up Photoshop (or MS Paint if you live life on the edge) and make some magic.

Leave your finished work as a comment in this thread and one winner, chosen via the entry with the most upvotes, will take home a free t-shirt from Eleven Warriors Dry Goods.

The rules:

  • Entrants must be 18 or older to enter.
  • Entries must use the source photo linked above as inspiration.
  • You may receive bonus points if you can take the road less-traveled and avoid the too easy fat joke.
  • Deadline for entries and voting is noon on Saturday, April 12, 2014.

Good luck!

I have no photoshop skills, but someone please do Devin Gardner lying on the ground.

SN: I couldn't get this to upload at the right size, so open in a new tab to enlarge!

...I too dream in color and in rhyme
So I guess I'm one of a kind in a full house
Cause whenever I open my heart, my soul or my mouth
A touch of God rains out...

How do you upload photos that aren't already online somewhere?  I knew how to do it on the old site but I can't figure it out here.  Get off my lawn, etc.

Jason Priestas's picture

You can use something like imgur.com and then paste the link into the image box.

OSU_ALUM_05's picture

Thanks Jason - I figured it out at about the same time you posted this comment.  It's like you have ESPN or something.

Jason Priestas's picture

No problem. Pro tip: You can just drag images from your desktop onto imgur.com's home page to upload (w/o having to go through the hassle of browsing for file, etc.)

I'd vote for this if it kept the OSU player in one eye, a la the matrix (red pill, blue pill), which was the idea I first had for this pic before you did this :)

But I have no photoshop skills, so I'm not going to make the attempt.

whoah...things done changed. I can't simply just upload a pic from my hard drive anymore? It has to be an embedded link to a URL?

BucksfanXC's picture
This is new Cass Tech. The old one was across the street and is no longer standing, but people love pictures of it for the "ruin porn" narrative they have about Detroit.
Old building was built in 1917, had a fire in 2007 and was torn down in 2011. The new Cass Tech building was built in 2004.

On a related note, is there now a -10 down-vote limit for comments?? And if so, how did I not know this yet?

If there are -10 DVs, then the point is pretty much made; it's overkill to keep going.

Well a friend of mine named Blue Manchoo designed that original picture
And he told me it was the perfect recruiting propaganda piece
I wrote him back a letter and I told him it was not the
Perfect recruiting propaganda piece because he hadn't said
Anything at all about threats, fake injuries, assaults, or coverups.

Well he sat down and did another version of this perfect recruiting propaganda piece
And he sent it to me and
After reading it I realized that my friend had created the
Perfect recruiting propaganda piece
And I felt obliged to include it on this photoshop Phriday
